Product Description

About the Author

Petit-fils d''une esclave noire et d''un marquis créole, Alexandre Dumas commence sa carrière d''écrivain au théâtre, sous la protection du duc d''Orléans. Après le scandale que provoque sa pièce Henri III et sa cour, et malgré le succès qu''elle rencontre, il se tourne vers le roman pour s''affranchir des contraintes du théâtre. Le triomphe que rencontrent ses romans, parmi lesquels Les Trois Mousquetaires, ou encore Le Comte de Monte-Cristo, en a fait l''un des plus grands écrivains de son siècle, dont l''œuvre continue de nourrir nos esprits. Ses cendres ont été transportées au Panthéon en 2002. --This text refers to the Mass Market Paperback edition.

HASH(0xa4967a80) out of 5 stars Nice story, wrong author! March 26 2012
By Eduardo Buarque de Alcazar - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
As I am a lover of Dumas stories and also of the several tales about Robin Hood, I tried this book. The story here narrated is a little different from the several others more usually known, which was expected as there are several variations and versions of this same legendary character.

What readers must know is that this story does not end in this book. There is another book called "Robin Hood, le Proscrit" with the second half of the story.

What the publishers from Points should know, as I discovered later when looking for the second book, is that these books were not writen by Dumas! Alexander Dumas has only translated the original work from an english writer called Pierce Egan (it seems that even this role as a translator is controversial).

It is very sad to see the credits wrongly given to another person... This book does not make any mention to the original author or the role of Dumas as only a translator. There is a kindle version of this same book, with the correct author's name:
Robin Hood, le prince des voleurs (French Edition)

Nevertheless, except for this serious error on the author's name, I liked the whole story a lot, particularly the part which is told on the second book.

For those who want to know the original text by Pierce Egan, it can be found (with nice illustrations) on Google Books with the title "Robin Hood and Little John: or, The merry men of Sherwood forest". It is richer not only for the illustrations, but also for the preface and some quotes included by the author.
