After he is thrown in prison on his wedding day for a crime he did not commit, Edmond Dant?s learns that he was betrayed by his friends and becomes determined to get revenge. His ally, Abb? Faria, helps him escape and Dant?s travels to the Isle of Monte Cristo to uncover the man's treasure. Assuming the identity of the Count of Monte Cristo, Dant?s returns home and establishes relationships with those he knew in his past life, keeping their betrayal and his thirst for revenge, fresh in his mind.
The Count of Monte Cristo was inspired by Dumas' father's story of military service, betrayal, and family life as a man of mixed ethnicities. The Count of Monte Cristo has been adapted into several movies, television shows, plays, and literary adaptations, including sequels. It has also influenced many contemporary works such as V for Vendetta, Doctor Who, Star Trek, and The Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest.
