“All for one, one for all!”--Alexandre Dumas, The Three Musketeers The
Three Musketeers, by French writer Alexandre Dumas, was first released in
serial form in 1844, a year before Dumas’ publication of The Count of Monte
Cristo. The story was an instant success, largely due to Dumas’
transformation of the historical fiction genre. In The Three Musketeers,
contrary to popular practice at the time, history acted as a backdrop for
the story rather than the primary element, making it a fun and accessible
read. The story follows young d’Artagnan and his friends Athos, Porthos,
and Aramis as they defend honor amidst the power struggles of 17th century
France. Still popular with readers today, this classic is now available in
a chic and affordable edition as part of the Word Cloud Classics series
from Canterbury Classics.
