Alexandre Dumas was a French writer, whose works have been translated into many languages. His father – an enslaved man of African descent, who became one of Napoleon’s generals – died when Dumas was just four years old, and his mother found it hard to give him an education. Despite this, Dumas is still one of the best read French writers of all time. Dumas is seen as one of the leaders of the Romantic movement.
