After a dramatic escape from prison, Dantès acquires a fortune at the island of Monte Cristo, and returns to France as the mysterious and sought-after count of Monte Cristo. With steely resolve, he sets about wreaking vengeance on those who conspired his ruination. And with devastating consequences. Set in France, Italy, and the islands in the Mediterranean during the historical events of 1815-1839, this literary classic by Alexandre Dumas, père, originally published between 1844 and 1845, is an exploration of universal themes like romance, hope, loyalty, betrayal, vengeance, forgiveness, and justice.
