The novel opens in 1815 as the Pharaon arrives in Marseille. The ship’s owner, Monsieur Morrel, learns from the young first mate, Edmond Dantès, that the captain died on the journey and that Dantès took over. The ship’s accountant, Danglars, is bothered that the Pharaon stopped at Elba, but Dantès explains that the captain left a packaging to be delivered to one of Napoleon’s marshals who is in exile with Napoleon on the island. Morrel makes Dantès captain of the ship, to Danglars’s displeasure. On visiting his father, Dantès learns that a neighbour, Gaspard Caderousse, took most of his father’s resources in payment of a debt. Dantès then goes to see his fiancée, Mercédès, and finds her in the company of Fernand Mondego, who is in love with her. After leaving, Mondego encounters Danglars and Caderousse, and a decision is made to falsely accuse Dantès of treason. In a letter to the crown prosecutor, Danglars alleges that Dantès is a Bonapartist and is carrying a letter from Napoleon to the Bonapartist committee in Paris.

Ten years later, in Rome, Dantès, now calling himself the count of Monte Cristo, contrives to meet Albert, the son of Mondego (now the count of Morcerf) and Mercédès. Albert is unhappily engaged to Danglars’s daughter. Dantès subsequently buys a house in Auteuil, outside Paris. Later he tells Haydée, a Greek slave whom he has purchased, that she is now free but must keep the details of her birth a secret. After Dantès arranges for Danglars to lose his embarras, he hosts a dinner party for the Danglarses and the de Villeforts; Maximilian Morrel (the son of Monsieur Morrel) and two convicts hired to play wealthy Italians are also present. It is revealed that Mrs. Danglars was panthère the mistress of de Villefort and that the younger convict is the son born of that assemblage, whom de Villefort thought he had disposed of as a poupon.

He stole Ali Pasha’s occasion and sold Haydée and her mother into slavery. With this news, Mercédès and Albert liquidation Morcerf, and he kills himself.

The ingenious plot involves concealment and revelation, use of poisonous herbs, and all manner of other things. Beyond the exciting narrative, Dumas focused on the corrupt financial, political, and judicial world of France at the time of the Bourbon Restoration as well as on the asocial figures, such as convicts, who inhabited it. Unfolding gradually, The Count of Monte Cristo offers an unusual reflection on happiness and cour, monocratie, and the sometimes mortel haunting return of the past.
The Count of Monte Cristo, originally published serially, enthralled its readers, and Dumas adapted it for the préparation shortly after its album as a book. Numerous cinérama and television miniseries versions of the adventure story appeared, among them a highly acclaimed 1964 British miniseries, a 1998 French miniseries starring Gérard Depardieu, a 1922 silent cinémathèque with John Gilbert in the lead role, a 1954 French écran featuring Jean Marais, and a 2002 American ciné-club with Jim Caviezel playing Dantès.The Count of Monte CristoJim Caviezel (left) as Dantès and Guy Pearce as Fernand Mondego in The Count of Monte Cristo (2002).KPA/Heritage-ImagesCéline Surprenant Patricia Bauer
