Trop de faveur nuit : écrite en 1848, devenue aussitôt et définitivement un mythe, La Dame aux camélias a été si souvent transposée, adaptée, filmée que Verdi et Greta Garbo ont fait un peu oublier l'œuvre elle-même. Une œuvre qui est un document social. Mais surtout un très grand livre, écrit dans la langue la plus forte, avec d'admirables dialogues et un portrait de femm ...more

Quite good and similar to Zola's Nana in many ways, although, good storytellers as they were, neither Dumas Papa or Dumas Fils were in Zola's league.

What happens to the pretty girl who trades off her looks for money when she is past her sell-by date? Then she has to hope the man who always loved her will stump up the cash she needs so badly despite her constant rejection when she was at the top of the game and judged him too poor to supply her with the luxuries she felt entitled to. And hope he

غادة الكاميليا وجمال غادة الكاميليا . روايه تخرجك من مزاج سئ وواقع اسود . روايه تضحك وتبكيك . تسعدك وتحزنك . روايه تمثل البساطه والعنف . تمثل الحلم والواقع . كل ذلك واكثر فى خليط مميز يسحرك ويجبرك على السمو والعظمه . شعور رائع بعد قرائتها

غادة الكامليا هي من تلك الروايات التي تستحق وصف (الرواية الطفرة) ففيها ترى قصة فريدة في حينها , وتندمج فيها وتعشقها , هي رواية عن الحب , عن ذلك الشعور اللإرادي الذي ينتابنا تجاه أشخاص قد لا تربطنا بهم أي صلة , هي رواية تحبها وتحب شخوصها.

Η Μαργαρίτα Γκοτιέ είναι μια εταίρα πολυτελείας. Τον πλούσιο και θορυβώδη βίος της θα διακόψει ο έρωτας, όταν θα γνωρίσει ένα νεαρό ονόματι Αρμάνδο Ντιβάλ. Οι δύο νεοι θα αγαπηθούν παράφορα, αλλά το παρελθόν του ενός θα γίνει εμπόδιο για το μέλλον του άλλου.

"Η κυρία με τις καμέλιες" δεν είναι μόνο μια καταραμένη ιστορία αγάπης, αλλά και ένα σαφέστατο παράδειγμα για το πως η κοινωνία δεν συγχωρεί τα παραστρατημένα παιδιά της. Ο έρωτας, η αγάπη και η συγχώρεση είναι έννοιες μικρές, μηδαμινές μπροσ

I wish people could still express themselves the way they do in the classics.
After I got a few chapters in, I really couldn't put this book down, which is unusual for me, for the genre. The story is such a train wreck of emotion and life that that must be why it pulls the heartstrings of so many people. It is all so raw.
I liked the author's choice to make it a story told by Armond after the fact, so he was remembering it exactly, but could see it all in a big picture view, the beginning, and w

Qué librazo. Reúne todas las condiciones que debe tener un libro para dejarme con un humor particular (tristeza, enojo o lo que sea): una buena historia, escritura impecable, personajes vibrantes y un final medianamente impredecible. Alexandre Dumas (no confundir con el padre, el autor de Los tres mosqueteros ) se luce, casi que se pavonea, con este libro. Y es que, a pesar de que la historia parecía ponerse pesada por momentos, había algo que no me permitía quejarme. Realmente me interesaba lo ...more

The oxford world's classics edition of this novel said in the opening introduction that 'this has never been a novel for which persons of taste and discernment have been able to confess outright enthusiasm.'

As much I dislike oxford for that very pretentious and frank statement; I can't fully disagree.

This is the tragic story of the life of a courtesan, Marguerite Gautier (dubbed Camille or Lady of the Camellias for her always carrying a bouquet of the flowers), who, by willing sacrifice that could never have rewarded her in kind, proved her purity of love. It is also a lamentable apologetic story told by Armand Duval, the man who sworn love for her but judged her too harshly, too unwisely, and painfully abandoned her.

In the opening of the story, the narrator chances upon the auction

I love Camille and I can't recommend it enough. It's become one of my favorite books. I had seen the Greta Garbo movie version of Camille and I can honestly say that the novel is more heartbreaking. Alexandre Dumas fils's writing was excellent and his tale of thwarted love is timeless.

Camille is set in 1840s Paris. A young courtesan, Marguerite Gautier, has died and although she was once the most sought-after courtesan in Paris she died of consumption without any of her rich friends or benefact

La Dame aux Camélias is a beautiful novel about the tragic character of Marguerite, inspired by women that Alexandre Dumas fils knew in real life and his own tragedy of losing his mother very young. He was an illegitimate child of Marie-Laure-Catherine Labay and novelist Alexandre Dumas. His father took him very young from his mother because the law allowed that, which inspired him to write about tragic female characters.

Margarita Gauthier é uma cortesã de luxo, com uma vida cheia de excessos e amantes .
Ela é a cortesã mais requisitada de toda a Paris e, como tal, leva um estilo de vida agitada, incluindo danças, festas e noites no teatro, uma frágil ilusão destinada a esconder nada mais que uma vida vazia.Tudo isso pode mudar quando ela conhece um jovem chamado Armand Duvall. Os dois jovens se apaixonam mas seu passado(ou talvez presente) se tornará um obstáculo para o futuro de ambos.
