Bantam Classics: The Count of Monte Cristo by Alexandre Dumas (1984, Paperback, Reprint)
He teaches writing and the history of photography at Bard College. One of the most widely read French authors famed for his historical fiction of high adventure, Alexandre Dumas wrote more than a hundred plays and novels, including the famous Three Musketeers trilogy, The Count of Monte Cristo , and The Man in the Iron Mask.
His books have been translated into more than languages. The effect of the serials, which held vast audiences enthralled, each member separately but simultaneously, is unlike any experience of reading we are likely to have known ourselves, maybe something like that of a particularly gripping television series. The Count of Monte Cristo was translated into virtually all modern languages and has never been out of print in most of them.
There have been at least twenty-nine motion pictures based on it many in the silent era, but one as recently as , as well as several television series, and many movies that worked the name "Monte Cristo" into their titles, capitalizing on the aura of the novel without sharing any but the most cursory aspects of the story. The name has been given to a famous gold mine, a line of luxury Cuban cigars, a sandwich, and any number of bars and casinos—it even lurks in the name of the street-corner hustle three-card monte.
The name exudes adventure, mystery, and vast wealth, and it triggers a Pavlovian response in great numbers of people who have never read the book. To have spent fourteen years barely subsisting in a dungeon demands cruel and prolonged punishment. But Monte Cristo, in contrast, recognizes all of his enemies — all now wealthy and influential men. Monte Cristo releases information to the press that proves that Morcerf is a traitor, and Morcerf is ruined socially.
Then Monte Cristo destroys Morcerf's relationship with his family, whom he adores. When they leave him, he is so distraught that he shoots himself. To revenge himself on Danglars, who loves money more than anything else, Monte Cristo ruins him financially.
