The Count of Monte Cristo
Any list of stories dealing with the theme of revenge is sure to have this expertly told novel near the top. The story is intimately linked with the history of its setting: early 1800s France, following the defeat and exile of Emperor Napoleon Bonapart. The unforgettable protagonist Edmond Dantès, a merchant sailor, is wrongfully imprisoned on accusations of supporting the former Emperor. Abbé Faria, a cellmate known as the Mad Priest, speaks often of an unimaginably vast secret treasure, which Dantès vows to seek out in order to exact revenge on those who have taken away his freedom and his fiancée. The intricate plots of Dantès form one of the true classic stories of retribution.
