Alexandre Dumas (1802 – 1870)

My 13 year old son is loving The Count and I haven’t read Musketeers but I am wondering if it would be a good and appropriate book for him. Any thoughts from parents out there? I just wanted to ask if this edition has been abridged at all. This new edition translated by Richard Pevear gets very high marks and both restores material as well as making the translation less florid and closer to the original French.

Lists with This Book. This alexabdre is not yet featured on Listopia. This is not the most profound of novels, but it may be the most compelling. More notable than these, however, is the entire exposition, something many novelists have found to be a thankless chore, if not trfi stumbling block. Sir Walter Scott showed us that the personal is alexnadre, that our most particular, most intimate decisions are mushcetari by the political milieu in which we are raised and the allegiances that our background requires.

Dumas adopts the contrary principle, namely, that the political is personal: It seems at times that all the characters of “The Three Musketeers”–even the King and the Cardinal, even that most gifted and ruthless of femme fatales, Milady–are satellites circling the binary star of Buckingham and l’Autriche, whose doomed love is the center of this impossible–and delightful–romantic universe.

I re-read “The Three Musketeers” this year, and liked it so much more as an adult. I love the narrative voice – droll, knowing Bill, wonderful review! I love the narrative voice – droll, knowing, sometimes tinged with nostalgia.

And what a cracking good story. Guy Portman Good review, Bill. Sep 24, I thought that Queen Margot couldn’t be topped. I should have known better. Honestly, I do not have enough space to fully explain all the ways I adore this book. But I’ll try to condense it. Love, love, love, and more love. Aramis and Porthos – the Merry and Pippin of the group, if you’ll excuse the extremely dorkish LOTR cross-reference – made me laugh; D’Artagnan was charming even though or maybe because he had multiple moments where, were I in the story, I I thought that Queen Margot couldn’t be topped.


Aramis and Porthos – the Merry and Pippin of the group, if you’ll excuse the extremely dorkish LOTR cross-reference – made me laugh; D’Artagnan was charming even though or maybe because he had multiple moments where, were I in the story, I wouldn’t know whether to kiss him or smack him upside the head; and the pure unfiltered AWESOME that is Athos cannot be put into words.

As soon as I finished it, I wanted to flip back to page 1 and start all over again. Lots and lots of duels. In Margotall the sex scenes were kept out of the way and, judging by the description Dumas gave us of the characters’ nighttime activities, no one managed to get laid for the entire book. The Three Musketeers, on the other hand, is by no means a bodice-ripper but is still very romantic. And then there’s the scene where D’Artagnan decides that nailing Milady will be a good way to get revenge on her for kidnapping his girlfriend.

Which brings me to my next point I try to come up with words to describe her, but I can’t do it because my brain sort of slows down until all I can hear are the words “Most. Just go with it, okay? But seriously, let’s talk about Milady for a minute. She keeps poison in her ring, seduces a guard who has been specifically warned that she’ll try to seduce him, stabs herself in the chest to make people think she killed herself, regularly tries to assassinate D’Artagnan and his friends, and was generally such a psychotic bitch that even Cardinal Richelieu was afraid of her.

Seriously, fuck you guys. View all 41 comments. This is a kick-ass novel, and I am indeed kicking my own ass for not having read it earlier.

I’m ashamed to say that I thought it was a children’s book. My wife indignantly refuses any responsibility for my mistake It turns out, on closer examination of the facts, that Elisabeth’s mom must have skipped about a quarter of the text – but I digress. No This is a kick-ass novel, and I am indeed kicking my own ass for not having read it earlier. No, far from being a children’s book, this is a noirish thriller, stuffed to the gills with violence, sex, nudity, dangerous blondes, corrupt politicians and random acts of mayhem and destruction.

I should have known that. Anyway, better late than never. Quite apart from being a terrific read – I just couldn’t put it down – Les Trois Mousquetaires is a remarkably interesting book for anyone who’s fond of French literature.

The merest glance at my French shelf will show you that I like both so-called serious novels and trash – as everyone knows, the French write the best trashy novels in the world. But what do these two literary traditions have to do with each other? I feel like a paleontologist who’s discovered one of those missing links in the fossil record.

A kind of literary coelocanth, it’s exactly halfway between the two genres. Too well-written to be dismissed as trash, it still has so many of the defining characteristics of the modern French trash novel that it can’t possibly be anything but a direct ancestor.

I’d hate to give away any of the plot – there’s a twist every other chapter – but let me explain in terms of generalities. Dumas is firmly in the great French tradition of Tragic Love. People in his world are divided into two classes: To be a superior person means belonging to the first group.


Unfortunately, living only for Love and Honour isn’t very practical, so these superior people generally have rather tragic lives; a theme you see over and over again in mainstream French literature.

A particularly clear 20th century example is Belle du Seigneur. Ariane’s husband is only interested in Money and Power, and his dreary monologues about his prospects of being promoted bore her to tears.

Naturally, she’s drawn to the dashing Solal, who never misses a chance to show how much he despises money it helps that he’s very rich. Equally naturally, it all ends up very tragically indeed. But let’s get back to Les Trois Mousquetaires. Dumas takes real historical events, and reinterprets them through the prism of his ultra-romantic world-view. On his account, the political events of were all about a complicated tangle of love affairs. Cardinal Richelieu, the true ruler of the country, has made advances towards her, but been rebuffed; he’s eaten up by jealousy and spite, especially since he knows through his network of informers that Anne’s heart in fact belongs to the handsome Lord Buckingham.

To keep the story bubbling, Dumas invents some more people, who play key roles in this complicated game. One of Richelieu’s main agents is the psychotic blonde temptress, Milady; her opposite number in the Queen’s camp is the ambitious young swordsman, D’Artagnan.

Needless to say, both of them are involved in their own intersecting webs of romantic intrigue. The startling thing to me is that the Dumas formula is still going strong, nearly years later. The immeasurably popular SAS series, which you can buy at any French airport bookstall, is written to almost exactly the same specification. The central figure, Malko, is a modern D’Artagnan: He and one of Saddam’s sons I think Qusay get involved with the same woman, there’s a lot of random sex and violence, and, of course, the deal falls through.

A still clearer example is Djihad A Chechen rebel group gets hold of a Russian nuclear warhead, and they pass it on to an Islamicist faction led by a sexy blonde woman. I know what you’re going to say. In the SAS world, Islamicist factions can be led by sexy blondes. This time, after the usual toing and froing, Malko shoots down the blonde when she’s just a few seconds away from detonating the bomb in New York.

It’s all remarkably similar to D’Artagnan’s battle against the nefarious Milady. So what is it that makes this formula so incredibly effective?

Cei Trei Muschetari (vol I+II) by Alexandre Dumas

It’s fun to see history rewritten so that politics and economics are less important than who’s sleeping with whom. The camaraderie displayed by the Musketeers has become proverbial, and alexanvre also inspiring.

But, really, it’s Milady who makes the book, and she’s the character who’s been copied most often in modern trash fiction. Look at those girls on the covers of the SAS novels. Miladies, every one of them.
