The Count of Monte Cristo is a classic adventure story about a man who is wrongfully imprisoned, escapes from jail and sets out to gain his revenge. Set between the end of the Napoleonic wars in 1815 and 1838 during the reign of Louis-­Philippe, the historical setting of the novel is fundamental, as in Dumas' famous The Three Musketeers According to George Saintsbury "Monte Cristo is said to have been at its first appearance, and for some time subsequently, the most popular book in Europe. Perhaps no novel within a given number of years had so many readers and penetrated into so many different countries.­"

Author:

This novel is an opportunity to see a world full of prejudice and ignorance through the eyes of a sixteen-­year-­old. Many of the facts are real, but for personal reasons, the author has used fictitious names and places. The story takes place in Romania during the communist period, and most of the situations reflect a dark side of the underground life which the totalitarian regime of that time tried to hide. The author discovered a thread of events that he followed, driven by curiosity, and then he tried, through the naivety of his age, to depict it in a mature and dramatic way.­Beyond the psychological exaggerations of the author, you will discover a bygone world of human ignorance and indifference in an outmoded and morally rotten society.

Author:

Dieses Stück ist ein Fragment. Es gibt keine einzig richtige Reihenfolge der einzelnen Szenen, denn sie sind weder nummeriert noch in Akte aufgeteilt. Die hier vorliegende Reihenfolge stimmt mit der Verfilmung mit Klaus Kinski in der Hauptrolle überein, vom Ende vielleicht einmal abgesehen. Das Stück spielt in Darmstadt, die Figuren sprechen größtenteils in dortigem Dialekt. Deshalb haben im Hochdeutschen grammatikalisch falsche Konstruktionen hier seine Richtigkeit.
