About The Book

“Is not a day divided into twenty-four hours, each hour into sixty minutes, and every minute sub-divided into sixty seconds? Now in 86,400 seconds, very many things can be done.” Edmond Dantès, a worthy and loving sailor, is imprisoned on the night of his wedding feast for a crime he has not committed. Thrown into solitary confinement, he decides to starve himself to death. But a few weeks later, there’s a scratching on his wall. Curious about the sound, he begins to eat again, using the serving dish to dig up. He eventually comes across a fellow prisoner, Faria, an Italian priest, who bequeaths him a secret treasure hidden on the island of Monte Cristo. How does Dantès escape, and what turns him into the vindictive Count of Monte Cristo? Alexandre Dumas’ The Count of Monte Cristo is a legendary saga of a sailor, his romance, betrayal, punishment, and revenge. A literary classic, it has been translated into almost all modern languages. An inspiration for many literary and non-literary works, it has been a subject of various notable adaptations across different art forms.

About The Author

Alexandre Dumas was born in July 1802, in Villers-Cotterêt, Aisne, France, as Dumas Davy de la Pailleterie. He is one of the most well-known French playwrights and novelists, best remembered for The Count of Monte Cristo and The Three Musketeers. The Count of Monte Cristo, completed in 1844, was originally serialized in eighteen parts in the Journal des Débats. Dumas was a prolific writer who penned numerous essays, short stories, serialized novels, and plays. His literary career began after he started working for Louis Philippe, the Duke of Orléans. He made his own literary debut on the stage at Comédie-Française with plays like Henry III and His Court (1829), Byronic Antony (1831), The Tower of Nesle (1832), and Kean (1836). Alexandre Dumas died in December 1870, at Puys, near Dieppe, France. He was buried in the cemetery in Villers-Cotterêt. In the year 2002, however, his remains were shifted to the Pantheon in Paris where he now rests with other French luminaries like Victor Hugo, Jean Jacques Rousseau, Voltaire, and Émile Zola.
