A marvelous character analysis of a courtesan called Camille. I've always known that authors are the best psychoanalysts in the world, and Dumas shows his skill by accurately penetrating the pscyhe of the girl whose name is the title of this book.
One of the best books I have ever read. A fantastic eye opener to the underlayers of society. You are introduced to disillusionment over and over again as the book progresses and I believe that every person should read this book - if nothing else but to see their own reflection in the pages
