La Reine Margot by A.Dumas



La Reine Margot (English:Queen Margot) is a historical novel written in 1845 by Alexandre Dumas, père. Although La Reine Margot is based on real characters and events, certain aspects of the novel may be inconsistent with the historical record; historians have attributed that to artistic licence and the fact that Dumas might have been influenced by propaganda against certain historical figures, notably Catherine.

La Reine Margot (1845) is a novel of suspense and drama that recreates the violent world of intrigue, murder, and duplicity of the French Renaissance. Dumas fills his canvas with a gallery of unforgettable characters, unremitting action, and the engaging generosity of spirit which has made him one of the world's greatest and best-loved storytellers.

Marguerite de valois by alexandre dumas. New york, thomas y. crowell & company, publishers. Ange Pitou (Volume 1).

In typical Dumas fashion and flair La Reine Margot overflows with treachery, intrigue, hidden staircases and doors, poison, murder plots, gallant heroes and best of all – Catherine de Medici is the most deliciously over the top villainess I have come across in a long time. Also, Queen Margot herself: gorgeous, smart, and clear-headed yet passionate. I love Dumas' use of suspense through implication in this book - as when he describes the events leading up to a poisoning at great length but without ever explicitly saying what is happening until after it's over.

These series are gigantic. Dumas himself said The Three Musketeers was the best, and The Count of Monte Cristo didn't quite live up to it.

It's 1572 and in an effort to ease tensions between the Catholics and the Huguenots Henry III King of Navarre is married to Marguerite de Valois (Margot). Shortly after the marriage the Huguenots are slaughtered at the order of Charles IX and his mother Catherine de Medicis on Saint Bartholomew's Day. Catherine is also bent on destroying Henry as her astrologer has foretold that her three sons will die and Henry of Navarre will rule France through the Bourbon line. Margot's dashing lover La Mole and his compatriot Coconnas are our two heroes and their fates weave in and out of the lives of the French Court.

Outside of that, this is really too difficult of a storyline to describe unless I wanted to write a book report and give it all away, and you know I don't do that. In typical Dumas fashion and flair La Reine Margot overflows with treachery, intrigue, hidden staircases and doors, poison, murder plots, gallant heroes and best of all - Catherine de Medici is the most deliciously over the top villainess I have come across in a long time. What fun! Despite a very difficult start trying to grasp the political complexities and characters, by the halfway mark I was rocking along and had a hard time keeping my nose out of it.

While I loved it to bits, just be warned if you are new to Dumas this is probably not the book for you - the first few chapters will frustrate you so much you'll never want to try him again. I'd try The Count of Monte Cristo or The Three Musketeers first. The Oxford Classics addition has a very helpful forward and character notes in the back - but be careful reading too much or you'll pick up a nasty spoiler or two.

The infamous Saint Bartholomew Day Massacre is the historical backdrop for this wonderful story of love and death. Before I say more let me give a suggestion for obtaining an understanding of the character list which can be confusing to the reader. Even before starting the book, it is a good time to familiarize yourself with the four of ten children of Henry II and Catherine de Medici protrayed in the book. There are several Henrys Charles etc and you may get frustrated unless you iron it out. The Oxford Uni Press edition has a very help history character glossary and well as extensive footnotes. In my opinion, Oxford does the best treatment of Dumas.

The characters in the book are a pleasure to get to know. Several of the protagonist have the same wit and flare as the three musketeers. The dialogue also pleases with its color, undertones, and maneuvering. Catherine de' Medici is a terrible villain complimented by other assassins and poisoners throughout the book. She reminds me of Dumas ability to bring out the worst in women as with Milady in three musketeers. However, at the same time he paints Margot as a lovely and delightful character in contrast. If you liked Viconte de Bragelonne or Louise de Valliere then I highly recommend.

First of all, the Kindle French-language edition seems okay at first glance: the French accents are correctly placed, which is not true of the French accents in Christie's MURDER OF ROGER ACKROYD. There it's a minor annoyance because there's little French in the book; here it would be devastating, but the French seems perfect.

Dumas fans know that he wrote four great books OR SERIES: The Count of Monte Cristo, a stand-alone; The Three Musketeers series, of which Twenty Years After is actually the best, though lots of readers don't get to it; The Reine Margot series, whose great character Chicot the Jester has a book of his own which is also better than the first book in the series, La Reine Margot; and The Memoirs of a Physician series. These series are gigantic. Dumas himself said The Three Musketeers was the best, and The Count of Monte Cristo didn't quite live up to it. Most readers think they're equally good. The other two series are of similar excellence, and Dumas fans know it.

Dumas worked with collaborators who did ninety percent of the writing. This kind of writing factory is still in existence today, of course. It matters how good his collaborators were, and in these four series they were all excellent. His other 400 (!!!) volumes are not as good -- but the four top series alone add up to about fifty modern novels in length.

Absolutely love this book. I am a huge fan of classic literature and Alexander Dumas is a staple in my library. I had read this novel in a different language and was eager to get a hold of an English copy. I'm glad I did. Excellent read!

La Reine Margot est une histoire historique avec l'amour, la mort, et l'intrigue. On rencontre Charles IX, intelligent, quelquefois gentil, ét quelquefois sur le pouce de sa mère vilaine, Catherine de Médicis. Ét il y a beaucoup d'autres y compris Henri de Navarre qui, plus tard, devient roi, et, bien sûre, Marguerite. Un bon roman

This is one of my favorite novels by Dumas. Spellbinding to the end, it follows young Margot and her power-hungry family from the St. Bartholemew's Day Massacre to King Louis' death. Dumas is at his finest, rivaling The Count of Monte Cristo with his provoking prose and poetic descriptions. The characters and plot, based loosely on real figures and events in French history, evoke a variety of emotions in the reader and the final chapters leave one breathless. If you plan on reading any book by Dumas (besides the Count), read THIS one.

The story of St. Bartholomew's Night massacre, the rift between Hugenots and Catholics, and the accession of France's greatest king, told as only Dumas can tell it.
Ranks right up there with The Three Musketeers
