But treasons and strategems still cry out for justice: civil war endangers the throne of France, while in England Cromwell threatens to send Charles I to the scaffold. Dumas brings his immortal quartet out of retirement to cross swords with time, the malevolence of men, and the forces of history.

Dumas brings his immortal quartet out of retirement to cross swords with time, the malevolence of men, and the forces of history. But their greatest test is a titanic struggle with the son of Milady, who wears the face of Evil.

In his Introduction to this edition David Coward sets both the author and his exciting tale in their historical and cultural contexts.

About the author

Nhà văn Alexandre DumasAlexandre Dumas [also known as Alexandre Dumas, père ("father")] was born at Villers-Cotterets in 1802, the son of an innkeeper's daughter and of one of Napoleon's most remarkable generals. He moved to Paris in 1823 to make his fortune in the theatre. At 28 he was one of the leading literary figures of his day, a star of the Romantic Revolution, and known for his many mistresses and taste for high living. He threw himself recklessly into the July Revolution of 1830, which he regarded as a great adventure. Quickly wearying of politics, he returned to the theatre and by the early 1840s was producing vast historical novels at a stupendous rate and in prodigious quantities for the cheap newspapers which paid enormous sums of money to authors who could please the public. A master story-teller, he became the best-known Frenchman of his age.

He earned several fortunes which he gave away, or spent on women and travel, or wasted on grandiose follies like the 'Chateau de Monte Cristo' which he built to symbolize his success. In 1848 he stood unsuccessfully in the elections for the new Assembly. By 1850 his creditors
began to catch up with him and, partly to escape them and partly to find new material for his novels, plays, and travel books, he lived abroad for long periods, travelling through Russia, where his fame had preceded him, and Italy, where he ran guns in support of Garibaldi's libertarian cause. Without guile and without enemies, the 'great' Dumas was a man of endless fascination. He died of a stroke at Puys, near Dieppe, in 1870.
