5.0 out of 5 stars A great story of love told in wonderful language 13 Oct 1999
By A Customer - Published on
Probably one of the most romantic love stories ever told, La Dame aux Camélias describes the love between a young man and a "prostitute", as we would call her today. Quite against her will, Marguérite falls in love and even gives up her profession for Armand. Still, in the eyes of society, represented by Armand's father, she remains a prostitute. Old Duval demands that Marguérite leave her one and only love. Only then she reveals to her lover's father that this first love is definitely going to be her last... absolutely heart-breaking, marvellous language, one of the finest works of literature ever written. Highgly recommendable!!!!! The only book that ever made me cry.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great classic 4 Aug 1999
By A Customer - Published on
This is the touching story of the romance between Armand Duval, Dumas' alter ego, and the beautiful courtisan Marguerite Gaultier. Marguerite sacrifices her own happiness for Armand's sake, only to result in a tragic conclusion. Dumas, fils, has written a moving and engrossing book that reveals the effects of love on human nature. I highly recommend "La Dame Aux Camelias."
5.0 out of 5 stars Perceptive analysis of th life of a french coutesan 28 Jan 2014
By Jacquot - Published on
Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is, of course, the novel upon which La Traviata is based. Ithere are considerabl differences, though,apart from the addition of music. Of great interest is dumas's analysis of the economic requirements of a courtesan's lifestyle,and th limitations this placed, both on her social life as well as on her heart.

5.0 out of 5 stars Gripping love story 14 April 2001
By A Customer - Published on
Verdi's opera, La Traviata was based on this book. Violetta is a woman who lives a life of empty pleasure in Paris who also has the Consumption (Tuberculosis, it's like having AIDS now). At a party she throws, this guy named Alfredo tells her he loves her and wants her to come live with him in the country, promising to take care of her. After deliberation, Violetta accepts. In the country, Alfredo's father approaches Violetta and tells her that this liason is brining shame to his family and he wants to get his daughter married but cannot with a blemish such as this. She agrees to leave Alfredo even though it breaks her heart and his. What happens after will tug at your heart and leave you with a renound sense of passion and a few- ok, a HUNDRED- tears. It's well worth the money to read this gem by an author as famous as Alexander Dumas. He writes with such imagery you can picture everything from the glittering, dazzling parties in the book to the anguish Violetta and Alfredo feel. You can't help but love and pity the heroine. She loves Alfredo, but what can she do? Allow shame to be brought to his name when she knows she coud very well leave him the next day? And poor Alfredo didn't know how much Violetta loved him; so much in fact that she gave up happiness so he could have honor. This is a book that everyone can get something out of, make this your next literary escapade.
