About the Author
One of the most famous French writers of the nineteenth century, Alexandre Dumas (1802-1870) first achieved success in the literary world a playwright, before turning his hand to writing novels. In two years from 1844 to 1845, he published two enormous books, The Count of Monte Cristo and The Three Musketeers. Both novels have sold millions of copies worldwide.
Reviews
Dumas never stints the action, witty dialogue and surprising plot developments.
The Red Sphinx sparkles and shines in a new translation. Races along with pointed humor and broad quips. Fun permeates this big book. The rest of this year's fiction will have to look sharp: An old master has just set the bar very, very high.--Christian Science Monitor [Praise for Lawrence Ellsworth's translations of Dumas's Musketeers series]
The test of a translator is his capacity to capture this characteristic interplay of the heroic and the ribald; the sincere and the ironic; the vanished past and the approaching present. And at this task Ellsworth succeeds, giving us a Three Musketeers with more clarity, energy, and simplicity than any previous English edition.--Open Letters Review [Praise for Lawrence Ellsworth's translations of Dumas's Musketeers series]
Dumas's trademark gifts at crafting engaging historical romances are amply in evidence in this lengthy yet fast-paced volume. Ellsworth's translation captures a complete narrative. A very entertaining epic.--Publishers Weekly (starred) [Praise for Lawrence Ellsworth's translations of Dumas's Musketeers series]
There is swash and buckle aplenty, and even plumage if that's what does it for you. And it is great fun.--The Spectator [Praise for Lawrence Ellsworth's translations of Dumas's Musketeers series]
