Über den Autor

Alexandre Dumas (1802 – 1870) stands amongst the most popular French writers of the nineteenth century, renowned for his adventure novels which have enthralled readers for generations. Born on July 24 in Villers-Cotterêts, France, Dumas grew up steeped in the tumultuous political tapestry of post-revolutionary France, an influence that would permeate much of his literary work. A prolific author, his abundant writings include 'The Three Musketeers' (1844) and 'The Count of Monte Cristo' (1844), both of which illustrate his adroitness in weaving historical facts with fiction in a captivating and swashbuckling style. Dumas's literary style is characterized by fast-paced narratives, engaging dialogues, and intricate plotting, underpinned by a romantic vision of the world. His works explore themes of justice, honor, and vengeance, often featuring larger-than-life heroes facing insurmountable odds. 'The Collected Works of Alexandre Dumas' serve as a testament to Dumas's extraordinary imagination and storytelling genius. His influence extends far beyond literature into the arts and pop culture, with numerous adaptations spanning film, theater, and television. Dumas was also a pioneer as a black writer in France, his father being of African descent. Despite facing racial prejudices, Dumas's legacy as an iconic figure in world literature endures. His contributions to the canon of adventure literature and his deft ability to animate history through storytelling remain an unparalleled influence in the genre.
