Welcome to Alexandre Dumas, Two Centuries of Living Literature, a website devoted to the author of such famous novels as The Three Musketeers and The Count of Monte-Cristo. This site is mostly in French for obvious reasons. We hope, however, to increase gradually, over time, the English content. Meanwhile, you will find here explanations about the main features of the site to help you find your way and find useful information, even to non-fluent French speakers.
If you are not familiar with Alexandre Dumas, a good starting point is the chronology found in the Dumas's life section. It gives a broad outline of Dumas' life and works. In the same section, Dumas as described by his and our contemporaries displays texts about Alexandre Dumas by writers such as Victor Hugo, Honoré de Balzac, Robert-Louis Stevenson or Georges Perec. Should you wonder about Alexandre Dumas fils (son) or Victor Hugo's relationship with Dumas, go to the dictionnary of Dumas' circle of friends.
Since there is nothing like Dumas' own writings, be sure to check out our library. Provided, of course, you can do so in French. Are you mostly familiar with the The Three Musketeers saga ? You might like to look at our anthology (selected extracts), in the Dumas' works section : you will see that Alexandre Dumas was also a great drama writer, an adventurous traveler and a dedicated cook ! Are you looking for Dumas' novels dealing with the French Revolution or wondering which books are the sequels to The Three Musketeers ? Go to the novels listed in historical order (in French). In the same section, you will find a full bibliography, a critical bibliography, a filmography, and so on...
If you are really taken with Alexandre Dumas, visit the Dumas Society section. You will find more about us, an association of Dumas' fans located in Dumas very own Château de Monte-Cristo near Paris. The Society publishes a yearly Cahier (Journal), a newsletter, and organizes conferences and exhibitions. For those involved in research projects, the site gives you a catalogue of the Society's collections of autographs, manuscripts and rare books.
