Camille Summary

Camille by Alexandre Dumas fils

A young man is captivated by a popular Parisian courtesan and attempts to build a life with her despite his family and society's growing disapproval. An against-all-odds tale that forces one lover to make a drastic decision for the betterment of the other. A semi-autobiographical story inspired by author Alexandre Dumas' romance with Marie Duplessis. Camille centers Marguerite Gautier, a coveted courtesan who falls in love with the young gentleman, Armand Duval. Despite her profession, Armand is eager to leave the city and start a life with Marguerite. Unfortunately, their romance is plagued by public ridicule and Marguerite's deteriorating health. In an effort to protect Armand's name and status, Marguerite makes a daring sacrifice that leaves him yearning for closure and peace. Camille is arguably Alexandre Dumas' most celebrated work. Shortly after its publication, it was adapted into a stage play, followed by an opera called La Traviata. This success also led to more than 20 film adaptations starting in 1915. The heartbreaking story has stood the test of time and continues to reinvent itself for new generations. With an eye-catching new cover, and professionally typeset manuscript, this edition of Camille is both modern and readable.
