DOWNLOAD Vicomte de Bragelonne 100 The Vicomte of Bragelonne Ten Years Later Le Vicomte de Bragelonne ou Dix ans plus tard is a n. The sprawling three thousand page saga of the Four Musketeers is the meerschaum pipe of adventure literature Although it first attracts attention by its intricately carved detail it is even remarkable for the way it ages for it reveals a rich range of colors as it progresses each darker and interesting than the one before Twenty Years After created a world cynical and heroes less intrepid and less unified than that youthful romp The Three Musketeers and now Ten Years Later as one of the volumes of this two thousand word serial continuation is sometimes called the world revealed is even darker and the cautious heroes self involved than before The nature of the world is most clearly shown by the characters of its royal ministers The cowardly and miserly Mazarin who replaced the Musketeer s fierce enemy the fearless and generous Richelieu has become cowardly and miserly than before and is soon replaced by the two rival ministers Fouuet and Colbert who are concerned not with statecraft but with finance n addition of course to gaining ascendancy over one anotherThe musketeers all in their late forties or fifties have grown cautious as well Count Athos strives to create a career for his son Raoul the Vicomte of the title Baron Porthos wishes to further his position in society Bishop Aramis engages in deeper inscrutable politics than before and even Captain D Artagnan wearies of being a musketeer discouraged by years of thankless service disappointed in his callow young king and most important of all worried about his lack of money for a comfortable retirement It is money not love or adventure or bravery that makes this world go roundAnd yet there are adventures and bravery here and a little love too D Artagnan and Athos accomplished great things for the exiled Charles II of England and D Artagnan with the assistance of Raoul battles rioters in the Paris streets Characteristically though this last heroic deed is also about money D Artagnan has become a landlord and the rioters are trying to burn his building down Also Raoul and Louise are attractive young lovers But though Raoul is noble and Louise is charming we somehow sense that in this darkened world such love is doomed to fail Twenty Years After moves slowly than The Three Musketeers and The Vicomte de Bragelonne is slower still But like a meerschaum its coloring is rich and varied I have decided to continue with the saga After all there are only about thirteen hundred pages left to go

REVIEW Vicomte de BragelonneVicomte de Bragelonne

DOWNLOAD Vicomte de Bragelonne 100 Ovel by Alexandre Dumas père It is the third and last of the d'Artagnan Romances following Th. I finished it It took me longer to complete this book than it did War and Peace I should reconsider my obsessive compulsion toward unabridged literature and my inability to accept a blemish on my record of consecutive completed reads This book just dragged on and on and on and on andAs the third installment of the d Artagnan Romances this book serves as a transition from the notorious three musketeers and their Gascon friend to the lives of other French and English characters youth usurping inevitable age and power subverting nobility We get a mere glimpse of Porthos and Aramis a small portion of Athos in order to indulge his iron clad honor and still only a bit of d Artagnan who reaches the age of retirement and moves his focus from reckless gallivanting and adventure for material comforts which compromise his character Our friends simply serve to contrast the new kids on the block to show the reader a transitioning world through politics and the integrity of a cultureI did not find the story bad I found the tedious nature of its telling nearly unbearable As a serialized story bound together in not one but three novels I have to scold the publishing world for trapping a novel readers mind habits and expectations in a story with no arc It just keeps going The novel form does not fully captivate this story Would one staple all the scripts in one TV show season together and release it as a novel It felt like sitting on a bench watching the people walk by At first you absorb yourself in the drama between the first passing couple But then you try and care about the grimy homeless guy who followed while still thinking about the drama between the couple Then the studious girl after him just frustrates you and you want to go homeI liked the story I found its telling nearly unbearable I will wait a while before starting Louise de La Valliere which I will eventually read only because of my obsessive compulsion to finish the series and my general inability to leave a literary investment unsatisfied

DOWNLOAD Vicomte de Bragelonne 100 E Three Musketeers and Twenty Years After It appeared first in serial form between 1847 and 18. Great addition to Three Musketeers Series Can t wait to get on to the next but I must Thought it was amusing that the title s namesake didn t really appear much in the book until the end And it was actually uite a cliffhanger at the end there I like the characters even as they age They re all in their late 50 s now I like their mature selves and the mature reflections they make I love this description of D Artagnan at this period of his life He had all the passions all the defects all the weaknesses and a constitutional spirit of contradiction which changed all these imperfections into corresponding ualities D Artagnan thanks to his ever active imagination was afraid of a shadow and ashamed of being afraid he marched straight up to that shadow and then became extravagant in his bravery if the danger proved to be real Thus everything in him was emotion and therefore enjoyment He loved the company of others but never became tired of his own and than once if he could have heard when he was alone he might have been seen laughing at the jokes he told to himself or the tricks his imagination created 161As this series progresses the themes and writing becomes richer and threaded with meaning Still not altogether altering but worth reading and appreciatind and reveling in Some nice uotes Avarice dries up the heart and prodigality drowns it255Debts terrify me Creditors appear to me by anticipation like those devils who turn the damned on spits and as patience is not my dominant virtue I am always tempted to thrash them 283Sinners are always so forgetful beforehand and so scrupulous when it is too late Priest to Cardinal Mazarin on his deathbed 314Incredulity thou are the pest of all great minds 397To be thanked for having done one s duty is humiliating 402Dumas often laments the passing of the real men in this novel Here are some of his thoughtsthe time had passed when nobles fought duels but that the feeling of hatred treasured up in the mind instead of being diffused abroad was still hatred all the same that a smile was sometimes as full of meaning as a threat and in a word that to the fathers who had hated with their hearts and fought with their arms would now succeed sons who would indeed hate with their hearts but would no longer combat their enemies save by means of intrigue or treachery 578And finallyThe ueen Mother to her 2nd son Never tyrranize over a wife never behave too haughtily or imperiously toward her A woman unwillingly convinced is unconvinced
