by Alexandre Dumas Jack Zipes Roger Celestin

Deep inside the dreaded Bastille, a young prisoner has languished, his face hidden from all, for eight long years. He knows neither his true identity nor the crime that got him there. Then Aramis, one of the original three musketeers--the finest swordsmen in all of France--bribes his way into the young man's cell to reveal the shocking truth. The revelation of this truth could very well topple Louis XIV, King of France, from his throne--and Aramis aims to do just that. But a daring jailbreak, a brilliant masquerade, and a bloody fight for the throne may make Aramis betray his sacred vow of "All for one, one for all." And in so doing, he will pit musketeer against musketeer, bringing an end to this swashbuckling saga--and either honor or disgrace upon them all.... "The name Alexandre Dumas is more than French--it is universal."--Victor Hugo With a New Introduction by Roger Celestin and an Afterword by Jack Zipes

Barrie Set in London and and the magical Neverland, J. M. Barrie's tale of a boy who refuses to grow up has delighted generations of readers.

The Three Musketeers

by Alexandre Dumas

The Three Musketeers, by French writer Alexandre Dumas, was first released in serial form in 1844, a year before Dumas' publication of The Count of Monte Cristo. The story was an instant success, largely due to Dumas' transformation of the historical fiction genre. In The Three Musketeers, contrary to popular practice at the time, history acted as a backdrop for the story rather than the primary element, making it a fun and accessible read. The story follows young d'Artagnan and his friends Athos, Porthos, and Aramis as they defend honor amidst the power struggles of 17th century France. Still popular with readers today, this classic is now available in a chic and affordable edition as part of the Word Cloud Classics series from Canterbury Classics.

The Three Musketeers

by Alexandre Dumas Jacques Le Clercq

First published in 1844, Alexandre Dumas's swashbuckling epic chronicles the adventures of D'Artagnan, a gallant young nobleman who journeys to Paris in 1625 hoping to join the ranks of musketeers guarding Louis XIII. He soon finds himself fighting alongside three heroic comrades--Athos, Porthos, and Aramis--who seek to uphold the honor of the king by foiling the wicked plots of Cardinal Richelieu and the beautiful spy "Milady." As Clifton Fadiman reflected, "We read The Three Musketeers to experience a sense of romance and for the sheer excitement of the story. In these violent pages all is action, intrigue, suspense, surprise--an almost endless chain of duels, murders, love affairs, unmaskings, ambushes, hairbreadth escapes, wild rides. It is all impossible and it is all magnificent."
