'All for one and one for all!' The three musketeers - Porthos, Aramis and Athos - are the most daring swordsmen in France, bodyguards to the king who fight to the death. When D'Artagnan, a headstrong country boy, comes to Paris to join their ranks, they become the greatest friends of his life. And when a villainous plot is hatched against the royal family by the sly Cardinal Richelieu and the seductive spy 'Milady', the four dashing blades must save them at any cost . . .

Acerca do autor (2006)

After an idle youth, Alexandre Dumas went to Paris and spent some years writing. A volume of short stories and some farces were his only productions until 1927, when his play Henri III (1829) became a success and made him famous. It was as a storyteller rather than a playwright, however, that Dumas gained enduring success. Perhaps the most broadly popular of French romantic novelists, Dumas published some 1,200 volumes during his lifetime. These were not all written by him, however, but were the works of a body of collaborators known as "Dumas & Co." Some of his best works were plagiarized. For example, The Three Musketeers (1844) was taken from the Memoirs of Artagnan by an eighteenth-century writer, and The Count of Monte Cristo (1845) from Penchet's A Diamond and a Vengeance. At the end of his life, drained of money and sapped by his work, Dumas left Paris and went to live at his son's villa, where he remained until his death.

Richard Pevear has produced acclaimed translations of Tolstoy, Dostoevsky, Gogol, & Bulgakov. The translation of "The Brothers Karamazov" won the 1991 PEN Book of the Month Club translation prize.
