Twenty Years After: Wordsworth Classics

Autor Alexandre Dumas A. M. Medeiros
en Limba Engleză Paperback – 2009

With an Introduction by A. M. de Medeiros, University of Kent at Canterbury.

A year after the publication of The Three Musketeers, /em>, Alexandre Dumas produced a sequel worthy in every respect of the original. In Twenty Years After the much beloved D'Artaganan, Athos, Porthos and Aramis reunite to fight the forces of evil. In the original novel they defeated Milady, a formidable foe; now they need to face her vengeful son Mordaunt, as well as countering the machinations of the sinister Cardinal Mazarin.

Their adventures also take them to England, where Cromwell is about to topple Charles I. Meanwhile, they must overcome the obstacles which the passing of time has placed between them. Rediscovering strength in unity, they fight for Queen and country. The Musketeer novels were a huge success in Dumas' own lifetime, and have lost none of their original appeal. Translated into many languages and adapted for cinema and television, they have helped to make Dumas arguably the most successful exporter of French culture to the wider world.

Our edition is based on the William Robson translation first published by Routledge in 1856.

Descriere de la o altă ediție sau format:
Twenty Years After (1845), the sequel to The Three Musketeers, is a supreme creation of suspense and heroic adventure.Two decades have passed since the musketeers triumphed over Cardinal Richelieu and Milady. Time has weakened their resolve, and dispersed their loyalties. But treasons and strategems still cry out for justice: civil war endangers the throne of France, while in England Cromwell threatens to send Charles I to the scaffold. Dumas brings his immortal quartet out of retirement to cross swords with time, the malevolence of men, and the forces of history. But their greatest test is a titanic struggle with the son of Milady, who wears the face of Evil.In his Introduction to this edition David Coward sets both the author and his exciting tale in their historical and cultural contexts.

Notă biografică

Alexandre Dumas was a renowned French writer born on July 24, 1802. He is best known for his historical novels, including The Three Musketeers, The Count of Monte Cristo and The Man in the Iron Mask. Dumas was the son of a French nobleman and a Haitian slave, and his mixed-race background influenced his writing, which often featured themes of social justice and equality. Dumas's literary career began as a playwright, and his first major success was the play Henri III et sa Cour (Henry III and His Court) in 1829. He went on to write numerous plays and novels, earning him great popularity and wealth during his lifetime. However, Dumas also faced discrimination and financial difficulties due to his race. Today, Dumas is widely regarded as one of the greatest writers in French literature and his works continue to be celebrated for their exciting plots, memorable characters and exploration of complex social issues.
