Who was Alexandre Dumas?
Dumas was born in Villers-Cotterêts, France, in 1802 under the name as Dumas Davy de la Pailleterie. He took the name of Alexandre Dumas, using the last name of his paternal grandma, Marie-Césette Dumas, a woman of African descent as well as a slave in today’s Haiti.
As a child, Dumas was fascinated by stories about the successes of his father as a general and some of them became popular in her works.
Most of Dumas’ historical novels, including The Count of Monte Cristo and the Three Musketeers, 20 years after the case and the Vicomte of Bragelonne, were originally written as serials.
Such works today have made him one of the leading French writers in the world and translated his books into more than 100 languages.
He has also translated his novels to almost 200 films.
In 1822, Dumas moved to Paris and became a popular writer.
A few magazine articles and books on travel have also been published.
In the 1840s, Dumas founded the Théâtre Historique in Paris.
In the late 1980s, in Paris’ National Library of France, a long-lost novel from the Dumas was discovered. “Le Chevalier de Sainte-Hermine” named. Finally, in 2005 it was published.
Dumas was described by the British playwright Watts Phillips as “the most generous, large-hearted being in the world. He was also the funest and selfishest man on the face of the planet. His mouth was like a windmill-once you got into motion you never had the time to pause, especially if the object was himself.”
Google Doodle: Alexandre Dumas and his novels
The novel “The Count of Monte Christo” is about a story of revenge in the classic sense. The young sailor Edmond Dantès is involved in a plot that he himself knows nothing about. In order to cover the tracks, he is arrested and taken to the prison island of Château d’If. There he befriends a fellow inmate who taught him language and science for years while they try to dig a tunnel to freedom.
Only after 14 years does he manage to escape and shortly before the death of his fellow inmate, he betrayed the location of an indescribable treasure – the island of Monte Christo. With the money and knowledge, Edmond Dantès returns to France as Count of Monte Christo to take revenge on the people who put him in prison for 14 years.
What is a Google Doodle?
Larry Page and Sergey Brin, Google founders in 1998, drew a figure for Google’s second “O,” claiming that they were out of office at the Flaming Man festival and that Google was the born of Doodles.
Google has chosen to decorate the icon with cultural moments and it was soon apparent that people really liked the move to the home page of the search engine.
A team of doodlers, illustrators, writers, animators and typically skilled artists now support the development of things you will see at the time.
