About the Book

These volumes of "Celebrated Crimes" include unique material, and their inspirations are also distinct. They are a collection of historical fiction stories written by Alexandre Dumas, pere, when he was still a rising young dramatist and a lion in the literary community and the world of fashion, rather than "the older" or the creator of D'Artagnan or Monte Cristo. The Crimes were released in eight volumes with 18 titles in Paris in 1839–1840. They have historical and dramatic significance in addition to helping current readers understand the semi-lawlessness that prevailed in Europe during the middle ages. The annals of the Borgias and the Cenci are included in the first book. One of the most bizarre tales is that of Urbain Grandier, who was the innocent target of a cunning and persistent religious plan and who Dumas dramatized in 1850. The second book details the bloody acts committed in the south of France over a lengthy period in the name of religion, which also drenched the beautiful countryside around Avignon in blood. The third book tells the tale of Mary Queen of Scots, another person who died violently and whose name has been the subject of an ongoing debate.
