La venganza era su unica diosa. Entre las novelas de aventuras de Alejandro Dumas, siempre ha ocupado lugar preferencial la historia de Edmundo Dantes, quien condenado injustamente a morir en la prision de If, logra escapar, encontrar un tesoro y bajo la personalidad ficticia de Conde de Montecristo, dedica el resto de su vida a vengarse implacablemente de quienes lo llevaron al encarcelamiento, pero tambien a beneficiar a todos aquellos que lo ayudaron y tuvieron un gesto de bondad en el momento de necesidad. Ese personaje lleno de contradicciones y que sabe premiar a los buenos y castigar a los malos es uno de los mas legendarios en toda la literatura de aventuras y la genial creacion de Dumas siempre ha sido una de las preferidas del publico. Es obra que nunca ha dejado de ser editada y se ofrece con orgullo dentro de esta coleccion.

About the Author
Author Alexandre Dumas

Alexandre Dumas fils (1824–1895), was the illegitimate son of Alexandre Dumas, père, who followed in his father’s footsteps becoming a celebrated author and playwright. In 1831 his father legally recognized him and ensured the young Dumas received the best education possible at the Institution Goubaux and the Collège Bourbon. At that time, the law allowed the elder Dumas to take the child away from his mother. Her agony inspired Dumas fils to write about tragic female characters. In almost all of his writings, he emphasized the moral purpose of literature and in his 1858 play, Le fils Naturel (The Illegitimate Son), he espoused the belief that if a man fathers an illegitimate child, then he has an obligation to legitimize the child and marry the woman. In 1844 Dumas, fils, moved to Saint-Germain-en-Laye. There, he met Marie Duplessis, a young courtesan who would be the inspiration for his romantic novel, Camille (La Dame aux Camillas).
