Perhaps the greatest "cloak and sword" story ever written, "The Three Musketeers, "first published ion 1844, is a tale for all time. Pitting the heroic young d'Artagnan and his noble compatriots, Athos, Porthos, and Aramis against the master of intrigue, Cardinal Richelieu, and the quintessential wicked woman, Lady de Winter, Alexandre Dumas has created an enchanted France of swordplay, schemes and assignations. The era and the characters are based on historical fact, but the glittering romance and fast-paced action spring from a great writer's incomparable imagination. From the perilous retrieval of the queens gift to her lover in time to foil Rechelieu's plot to the melodramatic revelation of Lady de Winter's true identity, "The Three Musketeers "is the unchallenged archetype for literary romance and a perennial delight for generations of readers."

Industry Reviews

"I do not say there is no character as well-drawn in Shakespeare [as D'Artagnan]. I do say there is none that I love so wholly."
--Robert Louis Stevenson
