Alexandre Dumas

(1802-1870)

French Author
Les Trois Mousquetaires

Alexandre Dumas Davy de la Pailleterie, grandson of the Marquis Antoine-Alexandre and a Haitian slave, is widely known as the author of The Three Musketeers, and The Count of Monte Cristo, translated into almost a hundred languages. Born in Villers-Cotterets, near Paris, his father was one of Napoleon 's generals. After several failures as a playwright, Dumas wrote `Henri III '. Performed in Paris in 1829 it turned to be a great success.


Dumas became then prominent as one of the leaders of the Romantic movement. His activities were intense: he wrote hundreds of novels, hired collaborators, added material here and there to their work, changed the plot and characters, and gave the works the charm and movement that made his novels popular. Dumas earnings were fabulous, but he was a great spender too, with an intense night life and myriads of love affairs. His personal wish to be elected at the Academie Francaise was fulfilled in the person of his illigitimate son, Alexandre Dumas (fils), author of La Dame aux Camelias that inspired Verdi's Traviata.
