The d'Artagnan Romances, Vol 3, Part 3: The Man in the Iron Mask by Alexandre Dumas (1802 - 1870). Translated by William Robson (1785 - 1863)


Volume 3 of The d'Artagnan Romances is divided into three parts. In this, the final part, d’Artagnan’s fortune is near its height; having become the illustrious Captain of the Musketeers, he is now the chief defender of King Louis XIV. Fortune has also smiled on his three companions: Aramis is a wealthy bishop and the powerful, secret Superior General of the Jesuit Order (or “the black pope”); Athos is the premier nobleman of France; and Porthos becomes a Duke with the proud but garishly long-winded title of “du Vallon de Bracieux de Pierrefonds.” On the opposite side of fortune, we find the young Phillippe, a desolate iron-masked prisoner in the infamous Bastille who has been deprived of everything, even his true identity, and the formerly rich and powerful Superintendent of Finance, Nicholas Fouquet. Aramis dupes the good-natured Porthos and desperate Fouquet into aiding Phillippe… with disastrous consequences for all, including d’Artagnan and King Louis XIV! Dumas spares none in this conclusion. Indeed, the turn of events drive d’Artagnan to ask, “What is there left for man after youth, love, glory, friendship, strength, and wealth have disappeared?” His answer, a true Gascon to the end, does provides some inspiration: “Forward! still forward! When it is time, God will tell me, as he foretold the others.” (jvanstan)

Hi Patty Marie! I've uploaded draft recordings of the first ten chapters :) I love the way the 3-part version of volume 3 is cut up. Part 3 begins right in the thick of it - with discussions between Chevreuse and Aramis of intrigues to come and intrigues now past :9:

Hope all's well!
John

Thanks much, Patty Marie!! Got ten more chapters for you :) My fall semester is starting, but my goal is to "keep calm and librivox" (hopefully 10 chapters a week)!

Man... what will I do when the d'Artagnan Romances are complete?? Maybe, I'll quickly fill in the boring gap between vol 3 part 1 and part 2 :hmm:

Best,
John

Oh! I hope you and your family didn't receive any damages from the hurricane. I'm in a hurry to get off to an appointment this morning, but I'll download the new files this evening.
