Product Description

Details

This edition of The Three Musketeers contains a retold novel, an introduction, notes on the author, notes on the period when the book is set, the book’s themes, a simple glossary, and a free CD (running time 2 hours). The book on the CD is read slowly and clearly to aid comprehension.

This novel set in the 17th century is an exciting adventure story about a young man called d’Artagnan who leaves home to travel to Paris, to join the Musketeers of the Guard. The three musketeers (of the title of the book) are his friends Athos, Porthos and Aramis whose motto is ‘one for all, all for one’. Dumas was writing about the old regime in France so puts his musketeers through adventures that take the friends through many absurd quests, and injustices to expose things that had happened before the French Revolution. The musketeers provide exciting entertainment. Dumas wrote two more novels about the three musketeers. The book has inspired films, musicals and plays, and was written as a serial first, published in a magazine.
