With an Introduction and Notes by Keith Wren, University of Kent at
Canterbury. The story of Edmund Dantes, self-styled Count of Monte
Cristo, is told with consummate skill. The victim of a miscarriage
of justice, Dantes is fired by a desire for retribution and
empowered by a stroke of providence. In his campaign of vengeance,
he becomes an anonymous agent of fate. The sensational narrative of
intrigue, betrayal, escape, and triumphant revenge moves at a
cracking pace. Dumas' novel presents a powerful conflict between
good and evil embodied in an epic saga of rich diversity that is
complicated by the hero's ultimate discomfort with the hubristic
implication of his own actions. Our edition is based on the most
popular and enduring translation first published by Chapman and
Hall in 1846. The name of the translator was never revealed.
