Je refuse d’être l’esclave d’un appétit quel qu’il soit.

Titan des lettres, infatigable travailleur et voyageur dans l’âme, hédoniste constamment nourri par los angeles ardour, qu’elle soit artistique ou amoureuse, Alexandre Dumas (1802-1870) a une lifestyles extraordinaire. Le suivre dans ses triomphes et ses péripéties romanesques, c’est entrer dans le tourbillon d’une vie constamment cellular. Si ses aspirations sont parfois contradictoires, il preserve sa vie durant l’idéalisme de los angeles jeunesse de 1830 et, comme son ami Hugo, croit en l. a. puissance collective du théâtre. Inventeur travel à travel du drame en conduct noirs avec Antony et du roman historique moderne – du cycle des Mousquetaires au Comte de Monte-Cristo, en passant par l. a. Reine Margot –, il reste à jamais celui qui, selon le mot de George Sand, possédait le génie de l. a. vie.
