You may be thinking I am spoiling the book terribly with the above summary but The Man in the Iron Mask is so densely plotted I have barely scratched the surface of the entire plot. Porthos is presented for comedy except for a moment of tragedy. These documents have been sought in vain for more than a century and were thought to have been lost. All that remains now is D'Artagnan, will he stand against his long time friends, or do what is best for his country? Meanwhile, the king continues to wallow in hedonistic luxury and seduce a parade of women. I thought The Man in the Iron Mask was the final volume of , alas I was only one third right, The Man in the Iron Mask is the final part of a much longer book,. He lays his hands on one of the soldiers' muskets and it goes off, setting off the rest, with many of the men shutting their eyes or looking away out of reluctance. He is buried in the graveyard of the in Paris.
It's utterly absorbing, the way words can be used to communicate feeling and evoke vision. Even though Fouquet and his wife personally wait on the King and Queen, his royal majesty is in a deep sulk. He, Athos and Raoul leave the island together. Aramis happens to be one of the few people in France who knows this secret. If Aramis is so damn cunning that he could manage to switch them without anyone noticing, it doesn't make any sense why he went to reveal everything. As such The Man In The Iron Mask contains a lot of plot points that require explanation, characters that have already been established, and other things we are supposed to have already read about.
Like the 1998 version, the two aforementioned adaptations were also released through. Personally, I would have been very lost if I had tried to read this book without reading the others The Three Musketeers, Twenty Highly recommended. When he was in public, or with strangers, Dauger had to wear a mask. Complication Fouquet saves the real king but is in danger of arrest anyway. There are some absolutely gut-wrenching moments and I caught myself reading open-mouthed on several occasions.
I'm sure it doesn't surprise anyone that I think the original was far and away better. With the diabolical plan agreed upon, the two head for the party at Vaux. I don't really remember the movie but I remember I liked it, that's why I thought I would absolutely adore this book. Since no one ever saw his face because it was hidden by a mask of black velvet cloth, the true identity of the prisoner remains a mystery; it has been extensively debated by historians, and various theories have been expounded in numerous books and films. He returns to the king and tells him of this only to find that the king already knew. Baisemeaux is the man in charge of the that would be the famous French prison. Fouquet struggles in vain; Raoul's love for Louise de la Valliere is impossible.
بازهم تفنگداران بر می گردند آتوس و آرامیس جزو جبهه ای هستند که میخواهند لوئی چهاردهم مستبد را از تخت سلطنت فرود بیاورند و طبق این داستان لوئی چهاردهم برادر دوقلوئی داشته و برای اینکه در آینده هرج و مرج بر سر سلطنت پیش نیاید، یکی از دوقلو ها را در جزیره ای زندانی کرده اند با نقابی آهنین بر صورتش این مرد نمیداند کیست و فقط در خاطرات کودکی اش ،زنی مادرش ملکه را بیاد می آورد که گاهی به دیدنش می آمد بعدها بدون آنکه علتش را بداند عده ای وی را گرفتند و ماسکی بر صورتش زدند و سالها او را زندانی کرده اند. While he is identical to his brother, Philippe is compassionate and gentle. Athos, Porthos, and Aramis teach Philippe how to act like royalty, so he may replace Louis as king. He was actually a pretty minor character. In the ensuing fight, the musketeers meet their death in defense of their country, and Louis's coach plunges over a cliff, taking him to his death. Aramis later reveals his ambition to be pope: Philippe can be king of men's bodies, and Aramis can rule their souls. His three companions Aramis, Athos and Porthos have retired into civil life long ago.
Suddenly, Aramis had to flee for his life on the word alone of Fouquet. French location scenes include the Chateau de Fontainbleau. For a novel that claims to be about a tyrant king and his struggle for the throne against his identical brother, that's actually a pretty minor part of this novel. Flowers adorn the grounds, the servants outnumber the guests, the food is delicious, the wine flows freely, and the night concludes with a fireworks display. Honor is first before riches or political place or family or work. Dauger was allowed to talk to Fouquet.
I also loved seeing Porthos in all his glory. It is interesting that the musketeer who started off as the most devout ended up being the most corrupted by ambition while the one who started off with the most ambition ended up the most dutiful to his moral obligations. After he does this, Fouquet finds himself nearly bankrupt. His books are so entertaining, often very funny, thrilling and full of high drama. Soon, he also finds that his son Raoul has died while fighting in Africa.
Having successfully freed Philippe, Aramis then convinces him to become king of France. Records show that the man really named Dauger was kept in Saint-Lazaire in Paris at about the same time the false Dauger was kept in Pignerolo. Had it not been for this I would have been a bit more confused. He tells Philippe that he can put him on the throne, switching him with his brother. Sure, I expected that, but maybe not quite to that extent.
He injures two musketeers before D'Artagnan overpowers him on the Palace grounds. Because they adhere so religiously to their honor code they are led into life threatening and adventurous episodes which entertain in reading but left me mystified by the underlying dismal outcomes in most cases. Honor is first before riches or political place or family or work. To kill the leader of the conspirators, the king calls in ex-musketeer Aramis, now a priest, accompanied by the Falstaffian Porthos. There are accounts that at the time of his death, the prisoner was about 60 years old. La Rivière's death was reported in January 1687; in May, Saint-Mars and Dauger moved to , one of the , half a mile offshore from.
Porthos, on the other hand, was revering as a lustful and impious man yet fun-loving but gradually leading astray himself throughout his life which is full of debasement. As it was, my irritation with the cultural blindness so ably represented in these novels got in the way of my enjoyment. Athos accompanies his son to the coast. He arranges for Raoul to be returned to combat, where he is killed by the Dutch cannons while leading ground troops in an attack en-masse. It only took me 8 or 9 years to read the whole series, finally! The men then pull up one of the floorboards and look into the chamber below where the king is staying. Having said that, I have decided that Alexandre Dumas is one of my favorite classic authors. One of the things that I really liked, and was really surprised by, in was the level of nuance in the characters.
