Author Info
Alexandre Dumas
Alexandre Dumas (known as Dumas p?re to distinguish him from his son, Alexandre, known as Dumas fils), was the grandson of a sugar-plantation owner and a Haitian slave--a fact that forced him to endure a great deal of subtle prejudice in mid-19th-century France. Born in 1802, Dumas visited Paris for the first time when he was 20; subsequently, he traded his winnings at billiards for 12 round-trip tickets to the capital, but within a year he took the trip one way and never returned to his small village. Living on his wits, he discovered the theatre, and soon began writing. In 1848, he estimated that for 20 years he had written an average of 10 hours a day. Perhaps because of his heritage, he was a committed activist against injustice and oppression, supporting the anti-Royalists in France and Garibaldi in Italy; Victor Hugo and George Sand were his friends. Dumas, ultimately a successful playwright, courted actresses, had 28 mistresses, and fathered three children. He made a great deal of money and lived extremely well; Balzac called his extravagant country house "one of the most delicious follies ever built," but in less that a year the expenses associated with it forced him to declare bankruptcy. The motto over its door read: "J'aime qui m'aime" (I love those who love me), an expression of both his well-known generosity and his narcissism.
