The Three Musketeers

by Alexandre Dumas

TRANSLATED BY LORD SUDLEY
An unsurpassed tale of adventure

The Three Musketeers and The Count of Monte Cristo both appeared in 1844 as serials in two Paris newspapers. They caused a sensation, and it was undoubtedly in this year that Dumas reached the height of his fame.

Unlike The Count of Monte Cristo, which is almost entirely a product of Dumas's fertile imagination, The Three Musketeers is based on historical fact. But so skilful was Dumas's use of his material and so strong his narrative drive that he redefined the old -- and more ponderous -- methods of writing historical fiction.

His story -- dramatic, stirring, romantic -- of d'Artagnan, Athos, Porthos and Aramis and their fight to preserve the honour of their Queen against the machinations of 'Milady' remains, deservedly, as popular today as it was then.
