REVIEW: The Lady of the Camellias by Alexandre Dumas-fils

It is my opinion that you cannot create a convincing character until you have made a broad study of human nature, just as you cannot speak a foreign language until you have studied it thoroughly.

Not having reached an age at which I consider myself qualified to invent a character, I content myself with simply describing one. But despite having many lovers, alexsndre has never really loved—until she meets Armand Duval, young, handsome, and from a lower social class, and yet hopelessly in love with Marguerite.

When she was alive, they would have never even deigned to talk to her, but after death, her jewels and furniture proves too much to resist. Liesl Schillinger has done an admirable job, I think, and I would recommend this particular edition.

It has a lovely cover too. The only other really worthwhile one is, I think, probably the Oxford World Classics edition.

It makes our narrator very angry. It took away from the story and his ponderings were mostly uninteresting, although very typically Victorian. The story itself, however, was well told; towards the beginning of the book, I found one passage particularly moving. It was a really moving chapter of the novel.

The narrator knew Marguerite only by sight, but he is a good man, and is very grieved to hear of her death, even more so when Armand eventually tells him the sad tale. His story begins on page 43, but it feels like longer than ldy in some ways.

Certainly, no part of the story is boring. I would highly recommend it. I received a copy of this book from Penguin.
