9780140449266: The Count of Monte Cristo (Penguin Classics)

"On what slender threads do life and fortune hang"

Thrown in prison for a crime he has not committed, Edmond Dantes is confined to the grim fortress of If. There he learns of a great hoard of treasure hidden on the Isle of Monte Cristo and he becomes determined not only to escape, but also to unearth the treasure and use it to plot the destruction of the three men responsible for his incarceration. Dumas’ epic tale of suffering and retribution, inspired by a real-life case of wrongful imprisonment, was a huge popular success when it was first serialized in the 1840s.

Robin Buss’s lively English translation is complete and unabridged, and remains faithful to the style of Dumas’s original. This edition includes an introduction, explanatory notes and suggestions for further reading.

From the Inside Flap:

Set against the turbulent years of the Napoleonic era, Alexandre Dumas's thrilling adventure story is one of the most widely read romantic novels of all time. In it the dashing young hero, Edmond Dantes, is betrayed by his enemies and thrown into a secret dungeon in the Chateau d'If -- doomed to spend his life in a dank prison cell. The story of his long, intolerable years in captivity, his miraculous escape, and his carefully wrought revenge creates a dramatic tale of mystery and intrigue and paints a vision of France -- a dazzling, dueling, exuberant France -- that has become immortal.

Descrizione libro Penguin Books Ltd, United Kingdom, 2003. Paperback. Condizione libro: New. Reissue. Language: English . Brand New Book. Alexandre Dumas epic tale of suffering and revenge inspired by a real-life case of wrongful imprisonment, the Penguin Classics edition of The Count of Monte Cristo is translated with an introduction by Robin Buss. Thrown in prison for a crime he has not committed Edmond Dantes spends fourteen bitter years imprisoned in the grim fortress of If. There he learns of a great hoard of treasure hidden on the Isle of Monte Cristo and becomes determined not only to escape, but also to unearth the treasure and use it to plot the destruction of the three men responsive for his incarceration. No longer the naive sailor who disappeared into the dungeon all those years ago, he reinvents himself as the charming, mysterious and powerful Count of Monte Cristo. A huge popular success when it was first serialized in the 1840s, The Count of Monte Cristo has been a fixture of western literature ever since, and the subject of countless film and TV adaptations. Robin Buss lively translation is complete and unabridged, and remains faithful to the style of Dumas original. This edition also includes an introduction, explanatory notes, a new chronology and updated suggestions for further reading. Alexandre Dumas (1802-70) was a pioneer of Romantic theatre in France, but in 1839 he turned his attention to writing the novels for which he is best known today, pften using collaborators such as Auguste Maquet to suggest plots or historical background. His most famous works include The Three Musketeers (1844), The Count of Monte Cristo (1844-5) and The Man in the Iron Mask (1847). If you enjoyed The Count of Monte Cristo you might enjoy Robert Louis Stevenson s Kidnapped, also available in Penguin Classics. What makes The Count Of Monte Cristo such a superior story is that revenge is not the only emotion driving the plot .it is an almost perfect story - also in the mix are love, friendship, jealousy, faith, education, snobbery and class Sunday Express The greatest of escape stories Guardian.
