Entranced (The Donovan Legacy, eOnd I shouldn t but I do and that s why The Three Musketeers is my guiltiest of pleasures So there ps I love Milady de Winter too For all the things she is I DID ITSee my video This is not the most profound of novels but it may be the most compelling Many of its seuences the Diamond Studs Milady s seduction of Felton the attempt of D Artagnan and The Three to rescue Constance move with remarkable rapidity More notable than these however is the ntire xposition something many novelists have found to be a thankless chore if not a stumbling block It occupies a full sixty pages 10% of the book and although it covers much ground the introduction of our hero the two principal villains and all three Musketeers with their ccentricities and distinct characters plus the fight with the Cardinal s Guards the mergence of D Artagnan as the fourth musketeer and an xamination of the curious relationship between King and Cardinal it is constructed with such seamless grace accomplishes its purposes with such a light touch and moves so swiftly that the result is astonishingSir Walter Scott showed us that the personal is political that our most particular most intimate decisions are governed by the political milieu in which we are raised and the allegiances that our background reuires Dumas adopts the contrary principle namely that the political is personal a siege may be lifted a war started because an English Duke loves a French ueen It seems at times that all the characters of The Three Musketeers ven the King and the Cardinal ven that most gifted and ruthless of femme fatales Milady are satellites circling the binary star of Buckingham and l Autriche whose doomed love is the center of this impossible and delightful romantic universe 1882019 Watch me fight all the people who dislike Milady but love the Count meanwhile her true identity is concealed by various aliases and her main goal in the story is to get revenge on the men who hurt her so they re basically the same character In this ssay I will1882019 The moment I realised the only reason why the Cardinal wanted to take down the ueen was that she had previously rejected his advances 1782019 I was really out here thinking that Constance would survive this hot mess of an abduction and scape plan and that she and d Artagnan would live happily ver after sobs1782019 Milady really was that bitch kept poison in her ring stabbed herself to prove a point seduced a man who was warned as not to be seduced by her planned the assassination of her Buried enemies with successvoked fear in the Cardinal himself raised herself from being a nun to a prostitute over to a respected lady and spy for the government with millions at her disposal whilst being 221682019 Athos is really out here trying to convince me that he has nothing against women and never had any complain of them meanwhile he s the guy who hanged his own wife after he found out she used to be a prostitute1682019 Aramis is really out here trying to convince me that he s a man of God and only an interim musketeer meanwhile all he does is sulk over his mistress and conduct secret meetings with women at night 1582019 When the Cardinal sat a trap for ueen Anne d Artagnan and Constance moved heaven and arth to get the diamond pendants she gave to Buckingham back from London only so she could bust them out and laugh in the Cardinal s face What a mood1582019 I have to work today so I won t be able to read anything and I m already mad I was just about to find out about Athos s wife Argh He s my mysterious fave1482019 I too deserve friends who would travel out about Athos s wife Argh He s my mysterious fave1482019 I too deserve friends who would travel countries and risk their lives because of a romantic notion that I have but no I can t ven get a text back1382019 Constance is really out here telling her husband he s an imbecile and a scoundrel while still scheming away to protect her ueen D Artagnan I too would die for her1282019 I m only a hundred pages in but d Artagnan is already my trash child has challenged 4 dudes to a duel for petty reasons and in general lets his mouth get him into situations his ass can t handle Ya gurl is here for it782019 The book has arrived and I am already uaking in my seat The only uestion I have is why the fuck the book is called The Three Musketeers D Artagnan is looking at Dumas like AM I A JOKE TO YOU282019 I just ordered this and I am beyond xcited If this is ven half as good as ordered this and I am beyond xcited If this is ven half as good as Count of Monte Cristo I will bow down before Dumas and get him into my olympus of favorite writers I m not going to waste time than necessary for this classic The problem seems to come from me since I couldn t follow a lot of the dialog I couldn t make any sense of what transpired here specially in the last third of the bookI liked the intrigue with the royal couple of LouisXIII and Anne d Autruche #And as soon as these historical characters disappeared from the book did my njoyment vaporate as well #as soon as these historical characters disappeared from the book did my njoyment

This is a kick ass novel and I am indeed kicking my own ass for not having read it arlier I m ashamed to say that I thought it was a children s book My wife indignantly refuses any responsibility for my mistake as she points out it s ntirely my fault if I drew the wrong inferences from the fact that her mother read it aloud to her as an The Power Of A Choice eight year old It turns out on closerxamination of the facts that Elisabeth s mom must have skipped about a uarter of the text but I digress No far from being a children s book this is a noirish thriller stuffed to the gills with violence sex nudity dangerous blondes corrupt politicians and random acts of mayhem and destruction I should have known that Anyway better late than neveruite apart from being a terrific read I just couldn t put it down Les Trois Mousuetaires is a remarkably interesting book for anyone who s fond of French literature The merest glance at my French shelf will show you that I like both so called serious novels and tras Random thoughts on The Three Musketeers because my brain refuses to write a full review Reading The Three Musketeers was long overdue The truth is it was the very first story I loved as a child I was four years old and my favorite game was riding my imaginary steed in a desperate race to save Constance from vil Cardinal Richelieu I grew up swallowing tales of the valiant Musketeers and they became a part of my soul Apparently there is a literary genre called swashbuckler that focuses on swordfighting and adventurous heroic characters and The Three Musketeers is the most prominent xample Live and learn my friends live and learn Plotwise it was verything I xpected and some Scheming fights bravery romanticism dangerous affairs loyalty revenge Alexandre Dumas surely knew how to write a compelling and The Case for Paleolibertarianism and Realignment on the Right entertaining story wi I am a drama addict I admit it I don t generally go for comedy I will pick a movie that makes me cry over one that makes me laughvery time and it is pretty much the same with my books But when I do read something humorous I love satire wit subtle humor Mark Twain Oscar Wilde or Will Rogers are my style Imagine my surprise that Alexander Dumas has made me laugh aloud in The Three Musketeers They are so over the top while written as if he is Oh My God, What a Complete Aisling endeavoring to take them seriously I have long adored The Count of Monte Cristo and so I have never thought of Monsieur Dumas as a humorist but I have been sadly mistakenEvery time you think D Artagnan and company have landed themselves in an impossible situation they miraculously find their way out It is Don uixote without any of the moral overtones These men are heroic figures only in a comedic manner Taken literally they would be abject cads They are self absorbed misogynistic and amoral but it little matters since the world they inhabit is villainous and petty and corrupt The King who is the head of the state is a buffoon the ueen a philanderer and the Cardinal leader of the church a man withoutthics or morals Any wonder that their men are less than stellar Monsieur Pain examples of knighthood So without any reason to admire anyone in this fictional world we are able tonjoy the scapades these men And Even Cheer Them On Toward Their Conuests Of Women even cheer on toward their conuests of women and the world of French politics In fact they are often fighting other Frenchmen than the English whom they profess to hate but for whom they seem to have great respect and admiration I can imagine reading this in serialized form and waiting impatiently to find out what happens to Milady and the Musketeers There are cliffhangers at almost very chapter nding and the pace is fast and furious I felt somewhat like a kid again while reading this I remember that joy in reading just for the thrill of the storya sensation I don t always get with my reading these days I thought that ueen Margot couldn t be topped I should have known better Honestly I do not have nough space to fully xplain all the ways I adore this book But I ll try to condense it First the four main characters Love love love and love Aramis and Porthos the Merry and Pippin of the group if you ll xcuse the Dare to Lead: Brave Work. Tough Conversations. Whole Hearts. extremely dorkish LOTR cross reference made me laugh D Artagnan was charmingven though or maybe because he had multiple moments where were I in the story I wouldn t know whether to kiss him or smack him upside the head and the pure unfiltered AWESOME that is Athos cannot be put into words My copy of the book is 754 pages but I was able to finish it in less than two weeks and not Patrick the Wolf Boy, Volume 1 even notice the length because the story was songrossing As soon as I finished it I wanted to flip back to page 1 and start all over again Duels Lots and lots of duels The only complaint I had regarding the other Dumas book I d read before this ueen Margot as previously mentioned was that there was a total lack of what I will bluntly call the dirty details In Margot all the sex scenes were kept out of the way and judging by the description Dumas gave us of the characters nighttime activities no one managed to get laid for the ntire book The Three Musketeers on the other hand is by no means a bodice ripper but is still very romantic And then there s the scene where D Artagnan decides that nailing Milady will be a good way to get revenge on her for kidnapping his girlfriend Which brings me to my next point Milady Holy crap I try to come up with words to describe her but I can t do it because my brain sort of slows down until all I can hear are the words Most Badass Character Ever repeating in my head over and over while the song Cold Hard Bitch by JET starts playing in the background if that makes any sense at all Just go with it okay But seriously let s talk about Milady for a minute She keeps poison in her ring seduces a guard who has been specifically warned that she ll try to seduce him stabs herself in the chest to make people think she killed herself regularly tries to assassinate The classic adventure from the author of The Count of Monte Cristo and The Man in the Iron MaskIn this swashbuckling pic d’Artagnan not yet twenty sets off for Paris in hopes of joining the Musketeers that legion of heroes highly favored by King Louis XIII and feared by vil Cardinal Richelieu By fighting alongside Athos. Artagnan and his friends and was generally such a psychotic bitch that ven Cardinal Richelieu was afraid of her UPDATEDear HollywoodWhat the FUCK is wrong with you Seriously fuck you guys LoveMadeline This is going to take some xplaining but my guiltiest pleasure when it comes to books is Alexandre Dumas The Three MusketeersI hear you saying How on Earth can that be a guilty pleasure I know It s a recognized classic It has far reaching pop culture impactIt s considered one of the greatest adventures ver written It has two of the most memorable villains in literature it has four kick ass action heroes It has sword fights romance intrigue and most people think it has big laughs it doesn t which is the thing that pisses me off most about its pop culture adaptations Even if people haven t read the book they know the Three Musketeers Hell most people ven know that D Artagnan the main hero of the book is not one of the ponymous Three So how could this book be a guilty pleasure The answer is simple at first then its complexSimple answer Milady de WinterComplex answer Milady de WinterFrom the accepted perspective Milady is an unrepentant nasty vil femme fatale She is an agent for the villainous Cardinal Richelieu spying on plotting against and battling our Musketeers at very turn She foments marital unrest between the King and ueen She plots the assassination of the Englishman the Duke of Buckingham to stop him from aiding the Huguenots at La Rochelle She tries to kill D Artagnan and later poisons his mistress Constance Bonacieux She corrupts a fine upstanding Puritan man And once upon a time she made a fool of the Comte de La F reShe is the accepted villain Globalization: A Multi-Dimensional System, Third Edition even worse than her master the Cardinal for whom and under whose auspices she commits hervil acts She is the villain and D Artagnan Athos Porthos and Aramis are the heroes Here s the problem though from another perspective she isn t and they aren tYou see Milady de Winter was a poor young woman who did what she must to survive Forced into a convent for want of food a priest fell in love with her and the pair stole some church property to start a life together They were caught and both were branded with the fleur de lys the mark of criminals Alone again she fell in love with the Comte de La F re They were married and she hid her crimes from him Then one afternoon the Comte discovered her brand He felt betrayed and strung her up by her neck leaving her to dieShe lived and Billionaires Contract Engagement (Kings of the Boardroom entered the service of the Cardinal Under his direction she became a powerful agent doingxactly what it is that agents do The Cardinal the right hand of the King connected to the Pope a man waging a war in the King s name the most powerful man in France has Milady undermine the King s ueen Anne of Austria a woman having an affair with the man Duke of Buckingham who is helping the rebels within her husband s kingdom She is also asked to keep tabs on a troublesome young guard D Artagnan who seems to be thwarting the Cardinal s plans through sheer luck and Gascon audacity She complies Then the man she is spying on kills her lover
#The Comte De Wardes #
Comte de Wardes if that isn t bad nough the man she s spying on turns up in her bedchamber posing as the Comte and proceeds to make love to Milady The lovemaking is so wonderful that D Artagnan decides to come clean and reveal his true identity Milady loses her temper with some cause I think and tries to stab D Artagnan which he doesn t seem to understand From then on Milady wants vengeance against the murderer of her lover who also happens to be her rapist for that is what he is surelyNext she is charged with assassinating the Duke of what he is surelyNext she is charged with assassinating the Duke of for which she is issued a carte blanche by the Cardinal but her nemy D Artagnan committing treason against his own King and country warns the Duke and she is banished to a tower while the Duke sails off to aid the Huguenots Well she isn t about to languish in prison so she seduces a Puritan and makes her scape winding up in a convent in France where she can hide out Lucky for her D Artagnan s mistress a married woman whom he was bedding while he was raping Milady is also hiding out in the convent so Milady de Winter takes the portion of vengeance at her disposal and kills D Artagnan s lover as he killed hersAnd for all of this the Four Musketeers now in possession of her carte blanche hold their own little court pass judgement on Milady and have her head separated from her shoulders And they get away with it because they have the Cardinal s signature on Milady s carte blanche which allows the bearer to do whatever they do for the good of the kingdomIt seems to me that Alexandre Dumas knew that perspective would dictate how we saw his heroes and villains and that he was okay with his muddied good and vil waters He was writing from the Musketeers perspective and he knew that his readers would side with them against the Cardinal and Milady But he also wrote in a way that complicated his Musketeers So much so that we accept when D Artagnan receives and accepts a commission to the Musketeers from the Cardinal himself He wanted his characters to be grey and they were So why is this a guilty pleasure specially if the guilt doesn t come from Dumas writing I am finally getting thereThe weight of popular culture has changed the way we see this story so thoroughly has morphed the Musketeers so completely into righteous heroes turned D Artagnan into such a loveable heartthrob and his companions into the most likeable of heroes that it is nearly impossible for people to see the things that make them greyBut I see them for who they are I see the grey So here comes the guilt I see the Four Musketeers crimes treason rape murder theft and all their flaws cruelty greed hypocrisy ntitlement adulterousness to name but a few and I still love them I love them and I njoy reading their adventures and I cheer for them from beginning Porthos and Aramis as they battle their nemies d’Artagnan proves he has the heart of a Musketeer and arns himself a place in their ranks Soon d’Artagnan and the gallant trio must use all their wits and sword skills to preserve the ueen’s honor and thwart the wicked schemes of Cardinal Richelieu With this classic tale. .
