Alexandre Dumas’s most famous tale and possibly the most famous historical novel of all time in a handsome hardcover volumeThis swashbuckling epic of chivalry honor and derring do set in France during the s is richly populated Les Trois PDF or with romantic heroes unattainable heroines kings ueens cavaliers and criminals in a wh I thought that ueen Margot couldn't be topped I should have known better Honestly I do not have enough space to fully explain all the ways I adore this book But I'll try to condense it First the four main characters Love love love and love Aramis and Porthos the Merry and Pippin of the group if you'll excuse the extremely dorkish LOTR cross reference made me laugh; D'Artagnan was charming even though or maybe because he had multiple moments where were I in the story I wouldn't know whether to kiss him or smack him upside the head; and the pure unfiltered AWESOME that is Athos cannot be put into words My copy of the book is 754 pages but I was able to finish it in less than two weeks and not even notice the length because the story was so engrossing As soon as I finished it I wanted to flip back to page 1 and start all over again Duels Lots and lots of duels The only complaint I had regarding the other Dumas book I'd read before this ueen Margot as previously mentioned was that there was a total lack of what I will bluntly call the dirty details In Margot all the sex scenes were kept out of the way and judging by the description Dumas gave us of the characters' nighttime activities no one managed to get laid for the entire book The Three Musketeers on the other hand is by no means a bodice ripper but is still very romantic And then there's the scene where D'Artagnan decides that nailing Milady will be a good way to get revenge on her for kidnapping his girlfriend Which brings me to my next point Milady Holy crap I try to come up with words to describe her but I can't do it because my brain sort of slows down until all I can hear are the words Most Badass Character Ever repeating in my head over and over while the song Cold Hard Bitch by JET starts playing in the background if that makes any sense at all Just go with it okay But seriously let's talk about Milady for a minute She keeps poison in her ring seduces a guard who has been specifically warned that she'll try to seduce him stabs herself in the chest to make people think she killed herself regularly tries to assassinate D'Artagnan and his friends and was generally such a psychotic bitch that even Cardinal Richelieu was afraid of her UPDATEDear HollywoodWhat the FUCK is wrong with you Seriously fuck you guys LoveMadeline

Book Ê Les Trois Mousuetaires Ë Alexandre Dumas

Les Trois MousuetairesIrl of adventure espionage conspiracy murder vengeance love scandal and suspense Dumas transforms minor historical figures into larger than life characters the Comte d’Artagnan an impetuous young man in pursuit of glory the beguilingly evil seductress “Milady” the powerful and devious Cardinal Richelieu the weak King Louis XII This is going to take some explaining but my guiltiest pleasure when it comes to books is Alexandre Dumas' The Three MusketeersI hear you saying How on Earth can that be a guilty pleasure I know It's a recognized classic It has far reaching pop culture impactIt's considered one of the greatest adventures ever written It has two of the most memorable villains in literature; it has four kick ass action heroes It has sword fights romance intrigue and most people think it has big laughs it doesn't which is the thing that pisses me off most about its pop culture adaptations Even if people haven't read the book they know the Three Musketeers Hell most people even know that D'Artagnan the main hero of the book is not one of the eponymous Three So how could this book be a guilty pleasure The answer is simple at first then its complexSimple answer Milady de WinterComplex answer Milady de WinterFrom the accepted perspective Milady is an unrepentant nasty evil femme fatale She is an agent for the villainous Cardinal Richelieu spying on plotting against and battling our Musketeers at every turn She foments marital unrest between the King and ueen She plots the assassination of the Englishman the Duke of Buckingham to stop him from aiding the Huguenots at La Rochelle She tries to kill D'Artagnan and later poisons his mistress Constance Bonacieux She corrupts a fine upstanding Puritan man And once upon a time she made a fool of the Comte de La FèreShe is the accepted villain even worse than her master the Cardinal for whom and under whose auspices she commits her evil acts She is the villain and D'Artagnan Athos Porthos and Aramis are the heroes Here's the problem though from another perspective she isn't and they aren'tYou see Milady de Winter was a poor young woman who did what she must to survive Forced into a convent for want of food a priest fell in love with her and the pair stole some church property to start a life together They were caught and both were branded with the fleur de lys the mark of criminals Alone again she fell in love with the Comte de La Fère They were married and she hid her crimes from him Then one afternoon the Comte discovered her brand He felt betrayed and strung her up by her neck leaving her to dieShe lived and entered the service of the Cardinal Under his direction she became a powerful agent doing exactly what it is that agents do The Cardinal the right hand of the King connected to the Pope a man waging a war in the King's name the most powerful man in France has Milady undermine the King's ueen Anne of Austria a woman having an affair with the man Duke of Buckingham who is helping the rebels within her husband's kingdom She is also asked to keep tabs on a troublesome young guard D'Artagnan who seems to be thwarting the Cardinal's plans through sheer luck and Gascon audacity She complies Then the man she is spying on kills her lover the Comte de Wardes And if that isn't bad enough the man she's spying on turns up in her bedchamber posing as the Comte and proceeds to make love to Milady The lovemaking is so wonderful that D'Artagnan decides to come clean and reveal his true identity Milady loses her temper with some cause I think and tries to stab D'Artagnan which he doesn't seem to understand From then on Milady wants vengeance against the murderer of her lover who also happens to be her rapist for that is what he is surelyNext she is charged with assassinating the Duke of Buckingham for which she is issued a carte blanche by the Cardinal but her enemy D'Artagnan committing treason against his own King and country warns the Duke and she is banished to a tower while the Duke sails off to aid the Huguenots Well she isn't about to languish in prison so she seduces a Puritan and makes her escape winding up in a convent in France where she can hide out Lucky for her D'Artagnan's mistress a married woman whom he was bedding while he was raping Milady is also hiding out in the convent so Milady de Winter takes the portion of vengeance at her disposal and kills D'Artagnan's lover as he killed hersAnd for all of this the Four Musketeers now in possession of her carte blanche hold their own little court pass judgement on Milady and have her head separated from her shoulders And they get away with it because they have the Cardinal's signature on Milady's carte blanche which allows the bearer to do whatever they do for the good of the kingdomIt seems to me that Alexandre Dumas knew that perspective would dictate how we saw his heroes and villains and that he was okay with his muddied good and evil waters He was writing from the Musketeers' perspective and he knew that his readers would side with them against the Cardinal and Milady But he also wrote in a way that complicated his Musketeers So much so that we accept when D'Artagnan receives and accepts a commission to the Musketeers from the Cardinal himself He wanted his characters to be grey and they were So why is this a guilty pleasure especially if the guilt doesn't come from Dumas' writing I am finally getting thereThe weight of popular culture has changed the way we see this story so thoroughly has morphed the Musketeers so completely into righteous heroes turned D'Artagnan into such a loveable heartthrob and his companions into the most likeable of heroes that it is nearly impossible for people to see the things that make them greyBut I see them for who they are I see the grey So here comes the guilt I see the Four Musketeers crimes treason rape murder theft and all their flaws cruelty greed hypocrisy entitlement adulterousness to name but a few and I still love them I love them and I enjoy reading their adventures and I cheer for them from beginning to end I shouldn't but I do and that's why The Three Musketeers is my guiltiest of pleasures So there ps I love Milady de Winter too For all the things she is
