Conspirations, débauche et jeux de pouvoir... Une période clé de notre Histoire reprend vie sous la plume enlevée du grand Dumas. Paru en 1849, ce récit oublié et introuvable d’Alexandre Dumas témoigne de son irrésistible attrait pour les destins épiques et les grandes figures de notre histoire. On retrouve ici les principaux dignitaires du Royaume en 1715, au lendemain de la mort du Roi Soleil : Madame de Maintenon en bigote calculatrice et sans cœur, le régent, Philippe d’Orléans, et bien sûr le cardinal Dubois, ce diable noir, pervers et parvenu. Conspirations et jeux de pouvoir, moeurs dissolues, portraits hauts en couleurs, aventures du bandit Cartouche... Dumas fait à nouveau œuvre d’historien, parcourant les archives, recoupant actes et dires de cette période 1715-1723. L’esprit de ses grands romans souffle entre les lignes et le miracle Dumas opère : l’histoire reprend vie sous sa plume, l’une des plus vives de notre littérature.

Later, toward the end of his career, Dumas wroteThe Red Sphinx, another direct sequel to The Three Musketeers that begins, not twenty years later, but a mere twenty days afterward. The Red Sphinx picks up right where the The Three Musketeers left off, continuing the stories of Cardinal Richelieu, Queen Anne, and King Louis XIII and introducing a charming new hero, the Comte de Moret, a real historical figure from the period. A young cavalier newly arrived in Paris, Moret is an illegitimate son of the former king, and thus half-brother to King Louis. The French Court seethes with intrigue as king, queen, and cardinal all vie for power, and young Moret soon finds himself up to his handsome neck in conspiracy, danger and passionate romance! Dumas wrote seventy-five chapters ofThe Red Sphinx, all for serial publication, but he never quite finished it, and so the novel languished for almost a century before its first book publication in France in 1946. While Dumas never completed the book, he had earlier written a separate novella, The Dove, that recounted the final adventures of Moret and Cardinal Richelieu. Now for the first time, in one cohesive narrative, The Red Sphinx and The Dove make a complete and satisfying storyline a rip-roaring novel of historical adventure, heretofore unknown to English-language readers, by the great Alexandre Dumas, king of the swashbucklers.

" Salvator Rosa (1615–1673) was a colorful and controversial Italian painter, talented musician, a notable comic actor, a prolific correspondent, and a successful satirist and poet. His paintings, especially his rugged landscapes and their evocation of the sublime, appealed to Romantic writers, and his work was highly influential on several generations of European writers. James S. Patty analyzes Rosa’s tremendous influence on French writers, chiefly those of the nineteenth century, such as Stendhal, Honoré de Balzac, Victor Hugo, George Sand, and Théophile Gautier. Arranged in chronological order, with numerous quotations from French fiction, poetry, drama, art criticism, art history, literary history, and reference works, Salvator Rosa in French Literature forms a narrative account of the reception of Rosa’s life and work in the world of French letters. James S. Patty, professor emeritus of French at Vanderbilt University, is the author of Dürer in French Letters . He lives in Nashville, Tennessee.

The beginning of the nineteenth century was a time of audacious enterprises and strange vicissitudes of fortune. Whilst Western Europe in turn submitted and struggled against a sub-lieutenant who made himself an emperor, who at his pleasure made kings and destroyed kingdoms, the ancient eastern part of the Continent; like mummies which preserve but the semblance of life, was gradually tumbling to pieces, and getting parcelled out amongst bold adventurers who skirmished over its ruins.
