Whether there is a historical truth in Alexandre Dumas`s novels?
are very difficult not to recognize him. Every line does not leave doubts in that whose novel before you. It is not obligatory to love it at all. It is possible just to respect. And to understand that the authors close to it on the level of the of creativity, fertility of uncommon mind and to ability to hold the reader at the book opened once, not and it is a lot of as could seem to someone …
In a case with Alexandre Dumas the question which is taken out in heading of this article is solved not so difficult. However, and not absolutely simply. On the one hand, according to the people not so alien to history as science, about factual reliability in Dumas`s works it is possible to speak or not to do it, but an essence (read: sentence) following: its per se in them just is not present. In pure form. To be looked through it is looked through, however only thanks to the fact that the historical truth in that measure in which it appears in creations of the French writer does not hinder the achievement of those purposes which he before himself set, granting the creations the right for life.
The distorted reality of bygone centuries finds a haven on pages of the books signed with a name and a surname of the author “ Three musketeers “ “ Countess de Monsoro “ and other not less remarkable fruits of the French writer, and (does not leave such feeling, excuse!) sometimes it seems that to write the best novels to Dumas and undertook as if wishing to embody on paper the principle “ To the Real facts contrary to “. Eventually laws of economy in that their part which says all the same had to work: the been born demand will be followed by all means by the offer adequate to it. And laws really worked, and together with them - the tireless creator of new characters, destinies and their various crossings on Road of Life. An era and its inquiries give birth to those who these inquiries can and are ready to satisfy.
At the beginning of the literary career A. Dumas gave preference to plays for theater which gave to the Parisian society the first chance of acquaintance to one of the most readable writers of the world subsequently. But at the end of 20 - x of the 19th century. switching of interest of the Parisian magazines, popular for that time (which followed the corresponding shift for the benefit of public) in work of writers of other, now more and more entertaining, the direction roused these authors to be reconstructed under the influence of the changing tastes and a vector of spiritual impulses of their contemporaries, the exit to a historical and cultural scene of a new genre - the historical novel became result of what.
Here Dumas took place as the true master of a feather. When the fact had no effect, is at least one shred more than that which its ability of the writer to make history on pages of the novels " was ready to give; manually “ the desire to hold the reader at the book got the best, and the victory remained for the one who is not judged subsequently any more (in this case the speech about the genius A. Dumas).
Here and to state several remarks. On the one hand, hobby of the Parisian public of those times for stories which usually left in parts, i.e. actually series, very much reminds our time as which in this context we will understand the period since the beginning 90 - x of last century. Surprising thirst for the razdutost which is given rise from scratch, to the plot dispersed up to its disappearance and also the episodes giving us sincere pleasure thanks to the simplicity and digestibility remains a distinctive feature of this time to this day. Here still to mention lack of the scenes capable to force the viewer to make an attempt to disentangling though the most insignificant on the scale and twist of the logician - a semantic ball, and the picture will leave close to complete. And so, series were fallen in love to Parisians already then.
Drugayamysl which should share concerns indissoluble communication which exists between the author and heroes created by him. For certain, many of us, reading “ The Count Monte - Cristo “ - whether it is conscious whether subconsciously - admitted to themselves impossibility of implementation of all told Dumas in real life (“ I do not trust! “). And now imagine that life of the writer quite often forced his contemporaries to doubt that it is possible to dream about it at least. Mansions, friends, women - Dumas - the father was able and loved (or perhaps loved and was not able?) to spend money not less actively, than to work for the sake of possession with them.
And about stories. A. Dumas took part in the revolution which broke out in France at the beginning of 1830 - x, and also Garibaldi in national - liberating fight personally helped with Italy. Here it is contact with live history? Which at least therefore he, is the bases to believe, for certain loved.
However, it is no more, than to write …
