Overview

In this second volume of his CELEBRATED CRIMES, Dumas chronicles the sanguinary deeds in the south of France carried on in the name of religion. The French conflicts over Reformation drenched the country in blood much the way the related conflicts blooded the English landscape (there between the Royalist "Cavaliers" and the Protestant "Round Heads" -- folks we would call Fundamentalist today). The strife steeped the soil of the fair country round about Avignon in blood for a long period of years. This book was not written for children. Dumas has minced no words in describing the violent scenes of a violent time.(Vol. II of VIII)

About the Author

Alexandre Dumas (1802 - 1870) was a French writer. His works have been translated into nearly 100 languages and he is one of the most widely read French authors. Many of his historical novels of high adventure were originally published as serials, including The Count of Monte Cristo, The Three Musketeers, Twenty Years After and The Vicomte de Bragelonne: Ten Years Later. His novels have been adapted since the early twentieth century for nearly 200 films. Dumas' last novel, The Knight of Sainte-Hermine, unfinished at his death, was completed by a scholar and published in 2005, becoming a bestseller. It was published in English in 2008 as The Last Cavalier. Prolific in several genres, Dumas began his career by writing plays, which were successfully produced from the first. He also wrote numerous magazine articles and travel books; his published works totaled 100,000 pages.
