Biographie
Né en 1802 à Villers-Cotterêts, et orphelin de son père à quatre ans, Alexandre Dumas doit très tôt gagner sa vie. À vingt ans, il part à Paris et, en autodidacte, il publie très rapidement poèmes et nouvelles. L'immense succès de son drame Henri III et sa cour en 1829 en fait un des chefs de file du mouvement romantique. Ses romans paraissent souvent en feuilletons et connaissent aussi un grand succès populaire. Mais d'énormes investissements théâtraux ou journalistiques disperseront sa fortune. C'est presque dans la misère que meurt Alexandre Dumas, en 1870.
