Young D�Artagnan arrives in Paris to join the King�s elite guards, but
almost immediately finds he is duelling with some of the very men he has
come to swear allegiance to � Porthos, Athos and Aramis, inseparable
friends: the Three Musketeers. Soon part of their close band, D�Artagnan�s
loyalty to his new allies puts him in the deadly path of Cardinal
Richlieu�s machinations. And when the young hero falls in love with the
beautiful but inaccessible Constance, he finds himself in a world of
murder, conspiracy and lies, with only the Musketeers to depend on. A
stirring nineteenth-century tale of friendship and adventure, The Three
Musketeers continues to be one of the most influential and popular pieces
of French literature. Richard Pevear�s introduction investigates the
controversy of Dumas� literary collaborators, and how important
serialisation was to the book�s success. This edition also includes notes
on the text.
