Coming back into town after a hunting expedition, Alexandre Dumas
witnesses an incredible scene: a man has come to hand himself in to
the mayor after decapitating his wife, terrified by the fact that
her severed head spoke to him to proclaim her innocence. This
prompts the guests at a dinner Dumas attends later that evening to
exchange stories of death and the supernatural, ranging from
accounts of the guillotine during the Terror to the legend of the
corpse of a French king taking revenge on grave-robbers and tales
of vampires and fratricide in the Carpathians. One Thousand and One
Ghosts - here presented in its first and only translation into
English - is a gloriously macabre work by the celebrated author of
The Three Musketeers and The Count of Monte Cristo, which also
touches on the serious political issue of capital punishment.
