The Count of Monte Cristo

Also significant in this first chapter is the tribute paid to Napoleon. Louis is astonished that Napoleon was able to enter the country unnoticed for two days. Chapter 10 This chapter witnesses the meeting and the friendship of Dantes with another political prisoner, Abbe Faria. At present, her lover is Lucien Debray, an officer in Baron Danglars' banking establishment, who is collaborating with her to manipulate stocks and bonds so that they can accumulate large sums of money. Of course, Dumas wants us to know that it is all those things: Monte Cristo's name — taken from the name of the island — and coat of arms recalls the suffering of Christ on the cross; Edmond Dantès's personal suffering reminds us of the same, and his rebirth as the Count reminds of Christ's resurrection. Noirtier attempts to save Valentine from marriage.
