Can you help me? I need to know the content of Dumas's writing and its influence on literature, for an eighth grade research paper.

I've always felt that The Count of Monte Cristo has had some connotation of Buddhist theology in the way that Dantes grows. After his apperent transformation at the Chateu d'if it seems as if he grows more and more intensely toward his God Realm self and then then the realisation and beginning of liberation ensues at the end. It is too perfectly placed to be coincidence.

Ha Ha!! You suck buddhamisation! And my ass you're doing a research paper like that in the eighth grade. What are you, some kind of alien collecting earthly information to report back to Pluto. You're cover is thin, bitch. Everybody knows all you learn in eighth grade is how to shake your ass when you're a girl and beat off and cry if you're a guy. Get off my planet!!!!!!

My favorite book is The Count of Monte Cristo. I read it last summer unabridged. I personally cannot stand any abridged novel. I've also read The Three Musketeers, but haven't had time for The Man in the Iron Mask, yet. Anyways, I love classic literature such as Dumas.

All questions about 'The Count of Monte Cristo' can answered at:

There is complete criticism and background on the true story it was based on. There are also links to criticism of Dumas' story, 'The Conspirators'.

does anyone know that the man in the iron mask was not actually entitled that but the three musketeers part 2?

I absolutely lobe Alexander dumas. In my french class We have to do a report on anything french so I am doing a book report on The three musketters. I would do it on the count of monte cristo but I only borrowed it from the library when I read it so i cant really do that becausr the report is due in 11 days. I will do that book next time. We have to do one report a quarter so I will do the count next time. I saddens me that The count of monte cristo I got from the library was abridged. I must read the unabbridged version so I can really get the book. What do you all think about the count of monte cristo movie??

Could anyone please tell me what some major works are by both Dumas per [spelling?] and Dumas fils? A friend asked me the other day and I was not quite sure. I conjectured that Dumas pere was prolific....writing much more than the son.....but I was really not sure what the son penned. Thanks for Your help in this matter.

Just like any movie, the Count of Monte Cristo movie cannot stand up to the book. When you read a book first of all you have time to reflect and think about what is going on unlike a movie where you must keep watching in order to stay ENTERTAINED. The book is a lot more complex and at some points a lot more unpredictable than the movie. You have more time to grow with Edmond Dantes in the book and try to understand why he would so badly want revenge on his enemies. Also in the book you get to enjoy more the depth of the genius mind of Edmond Dantes for it goes into more detail in the book.

When I was a teenager I and a girlfriend of mine read the whole saga of D'artagnan and his three friends. My father bought the whole series and the count of Monte Cristo. We read the young days when D'artagnan came to Paris, 20 yrs later and the last years that ended in the death of Athos, Prthos and D'artagnan only Aramis survived and was a jesuit.
Later I read the count of Monte Cristo. Those series were pretty long and yet I rememver enjoying the experience. Now I own the whole series of both.
Te books were much better than any of the films I've seen of either one.
