About Alexandre Dumas

Alexandre Dumas (1802 1870) was the author of more than a hundred plays and novels including the famous "Three Musketeers "trilogy (1844 47), " The Count of Monte Cristo "(1844 45), and "The Man in the Iron Mask "(1848 50). His grandfather was a nobleman who lived in the French colony of Santo Domingo (now Haiti), and his grandmother an Afro-Caribbean slave. Dumas s father, a celebrated general in Napoleon s army, eventually fell out of favor and then died when Alexandre was four years old, leaving his family in poverty. At the age of twenty-one, Dumas moved to Paris, where he enjoyed success first as a playwright and then as a prolific writer of both fiction and nonfiction. He took part in the uprising of July 1830, which placed his patron, Louis-Philippe, on the throne, and built his own imposing Chateau de Monte Cristo outside of Paris. But by 1851, his lavish lifestyle had bankrupted him, and he left France, fleeing both creditors and Louis-Napoleon Bonaparte, the new ruler who was no fan of Dumas. In the following decade, he made extended stays in Belgium, Russia, and Italy, where he joined the movement for its independence and unification. He died penniless but optimistic, saying of death, I shall tell her a story, and she will be kind to me. A scholar, critic, and novelist, Thomas Flanagan (1923 2002) was the author of "The Irish Novelists, 1800 1850 "(1959), "The Year of the French "(1979), which won the National Book Critics Award, "The Tenants of Time "(1988), and "The End of the Hunt "(1994). Marcelle Clements is a novelist and journalist who has contributed articles on culture, the arts, and politics to many national publications. She is the author of two books of nonfiction, "The Dog Is Us "and "The Improvised Woman," and the novels" Rock Me "and "Midsummer.""
