Ambientato nella Francia della Restaurazione e della monarchia di Luigi Filippo, Il conte di Montecristo è la storia di un'ingiustizia subita, riscattata da una vendetta portata alle sue estreme conseguenze. È anche una storia di onnipotenza: Edmond Dantès, vittima innocente dell'invidia dei suoi calunniatori, li distrugge sul loro stesso terreno, li annienta utilizzando gli stessi strumenti grazie ai quali sono diventati ricchi e potenti. Come un eroe senza tempo, riassume nella sua vendetta bene e male, si confronta con i limiti stessi della condizione umana, superandola: la vittoria è giusta ma amara, la vera liberazione è sempre oltre, altrove. Il Conte di Montecristo è il romanzo più completo di Dumas, una sorta di testo vivente in cui si intrecciano e coesistono il contesto storico, le vicende individuali, la realtà e l'immaginazione.

** Spoiler alert** First, make sure you find a copy that is unabridged. Most editions in English ARE abridged, but usually don't say they are. Not sure if this Penguin edition is, it's not the one i read. Readers generally think of this as a tale of revenge. For me, it was much deeper. I'm not a reli Leggi tutto
