Originally published as a serial in Le Siècle newspaper in 1844, this classic intrigue features Edmond Dantès as a hero, a young sailor from Marseilles who, on the way to marry the beautiful Mercedès, is denounced as a Bonapartist conspirator by his friend and rival in love. Wrongfully imprisoned for 18 years in the Château d'If of the coast of Marseilles, he becomes acquainted with a fellow prisoner, the abbot Farria, who before dying confides in him about the existence of an immense treasure hidden on the island of Montecristo. After a spectacular escape, Dantès recovers the treasure, and returns to France under the guise of the super rich Count of Monte Cristo with the purpose of quenching his thirst for revenge. Dantès certainly deserves justice to be rendered, but his crusade, relentless and without pity, turns him into a bitter and rancorous man stripped of all emotion. The young and naive Dantès is dead indeed, leaving his place to a manipulative count. However the man is not stripped of all commiseration since he will come to the assistance of those who had formerly helped him, reward his servants and contribute to the happiness of Maurel's son and Villefort's daughter by facilitating their idyll

Hedda Gabler and other plays by Henrik Ibsen( Book )
12 editions published between 1963 and 1997 in French and held by 60 libraries worldwide
"The three plays in this voluem cover the period during which Ibsen was preoccupied with realistic problems of personal and social morality. In 'The pillars of the community', partly by means of symbolism, he exposes the effects of a lie told to preeserve a man's public reputation. The solution -- to admit the truth -- scarcely seemed so simple seven years later, when Ibsen complete 'The wild duck' in apparent disillusionment. 'Hedda Gabler', the latest of these plays, is both a drama of individual conflict and a partial return to social themes." [Back cover]

Simenon ayant cessé d'écrire des romans depuis 1975, on se souvient qu'il fut aussi un grand voyageur et un journaliste. Ces recueils comprennent plusieurs enquêtes publiées dans les journaux français entre 1931 et 1946 et portant sur la condition sociale aux quatre coins du monde. Le conteur est présent car la réalité, comme on l'a dit, dépasse souvent la fiction
