Description

Introduction by Lorenzo Carcaterra
A popular bestseller since its publication in 1844, "The Count of Monte Cristo" is one of the great page-turning thrillers of all time. Set against the tumultuous years of the post-Napoleonic era, Alexandre Dumas's grand historical romance recounts the swashbuckling adventures of Edmond DantEs, a dashing young sailor falsely accused of treason. The story of his long imprisonment, dramatic escape, and carefully wrought revenge offers up a vision of France that has become immortal. As Robert Louis Stevenson declared, "I do not believe there is another volume extant where you can breathe the same unmingled atmosphere of romance."
INCLUDES A MODERN LIBRARY READING GROUP GUIDE.
