Description

Grandes Clásicos Literatura Random House nos brinda esta magnífica edición de una novela de enorme poder de sugestión, a través de la figura del hombre solitario que, tras sobrevivir a una vil traición, regresa para hacer justicia.

El conde de Montecristo es uno de los clásicos más populares de todos los tiempos. Desde su publicación, en 1844, no ha dejado de seducir al gran público con la inolvidable historia de su protagonista.

Edmond Dantés es un joven marinero, honrado y cándido, que lleva una existencia tranquila. Quiere casarse con la hermosa Mercedes, pero su vida se verá arruinada cuando su mejor amigo, Ferdinand, deseoso de conquistar a su prometida, le traicione vilmente. Condenado a cumplir una condena que no merece en la siniestra prisión del castillo de If, Edmond vivirá una larga pesadilla de trece años. Obsesionado por su inesperado destino, dejará de lado sus convicciones en torno al bien y al mal, y se dedicará a tramar la venganza perfecta.

Historia transida de densidad moral y cívica, El conde de Montecristo es, hoy como ayer, una novela amena, iluminadora y fascinante en sus múltiples dimensiones.

ENGLISH DESCRIPTION

Thrown in prison for a crime he has not committed, Edmond Dantes is confined to the grim fortress of If. There he learns of a great hoard of treasure hidden on the Isle of Monte Cristo and he becomes determined not only to escape, but also to unearth the treasure and use it to plot the destruction of the three men responsible for his incarceration. Dumas' epic tale of suffering and retribution, inspired by a real-life case of wrongful imprisonment, was a huge popular success when it was first serialized in the 1840s.
Robin Buss's lively English translation is complete and unabridged, and remains faithful to the style of Dumas's original. This edition includes an introduction, explanatory notes and suggestions for further reading.
