The Lady of the Camellias

Autor Alexandre Dumas
en Limba Engleză Paperback
The landmark novel that inspired both Verdi's operaLa Traviataand the Oscar-winning musicalMoulin Rouge!, in a sparkling new translation.

One of the greatest love stories of all time,The Lady of the Camelliasrecounts the history of Marguerite Gautier, the most beautiful, brazen, and expensive courtesan in all of Paris. Known to all as 'the Lady of the Camellias' because she is never seen without her favourite flowers, she leads a glittering life of endless parties and aristocratic balls, with the richest men in France flocking to her boudoir to lay their fortunes at her feet. But despite having many lovers, she has never really loved - until she meets Armand Duval, young, handsome and from a lower social class, and yet hopelessly in love with Marguerite.

ALEXANDRE DUMASfils(1824-1895) was the son of the famous novelist Alexandre Dumas. In 1847 he published his first novel,Adventures of Four Women and a Parrot, followed a year later byThe Lady of the Camelliasand ten other novels over the next decade. After the great success of the dramatic version ofThe Lady of the Camellias, he was gradually drawn away from the novel to the stage. In 1874 he was elected to the French Academy and until his death continued to produce a long line of successful plays.

'One of the greatest love stories of the world' Henry James

'Anyone who has read an outdated English translation of this novel; seen the opera it inspired -La Traviata,by Verdi; or watched the film it inspired -Camille,starring Greta Garbo, might have missed the audacity, obstinacy, sensuality, and recklessness of its characters' Liesl Schillinger
