Overview

In 1844 Dumas fils began an affair with Marie Duplessis, one of the most desirable courtesans in Paris. After Marie died of consumption in 1847 at the age of 23, Dumas turned their liaison into one of the greatest love stories of all time. Armand casts caution to the winds as he pursues his passion for Marguerite, for whom love has become her only hope, her redemption even. But there is a price to pay. If all the world loves a lover, society calls passion to order." "La Dame aux Camelias still has the power to cast the spell that has fascinated generations of readers. Dumas's heroine lives on in revivals of the stage version, in film and television adaptations, and in La Traviata, Verdi's perennially popular opera. For Marguerite has long since attained the status of a myth. Dumas's subtle and moving portrait of a woman in love is a timeless antidote to the cynicism of every age.

    A Great Novel of Timeless Romance

    It's funny, an opera fanatic of mine was telling me a story that about La Traviata. I know nothing about opera, but I'm a reader, especially of 19th cenutry French literature. She told me it was based on the novel La Dame aux camélias(The Lady of the Camellias). What a great read. The story is tragic, about a young man who falls in love with a "kept" woman, a type of prostitute, how their passion enriches both their lives, and how society relentlessly stops that passion. Then tragedy abounds. Great translation, it reads like a contemporary novel. If you are interested in love, read this now. I wish Oxford would come out with more work from Alexandre Dumas, fil.
