Abstract

[Autom. eng. transl.] If it is true that the myth has no author, the work of Dumas père, in its context of the conflict of history and legend, is placed in a special groove of the popular myth. The planetary celebrity enjoyed by her immense work paradoxically attributes her with the character of an 'empty container', in which everyone can find a piece of himself (a forgotten dream, a childhood memory, the hero who marked our life), but also, much more profoundly, a system of values, a seemingly simple scheme in which to place the large, elusive categories of Good and Evil, of love and hate, of revenge and forgiveness. In the universe of Dumas père justice is done, and to this only its author aspired: to a justice for itself which he will not have access to in the XXI century, with the entrance to the Panthéon of Paris.
