Alexandre Dumas, père Alexandre Dumas
Strongly Associated with:   The Count of Monte Cristo, The Three Musketeers
Notes:
Dumas made use of what he called his "factory"  — a group of collaborators who searched memoirs for plots suitable for Dumas’ adventurous tales. Some critics accuse him altering historical fact, using too much from other writers, and of being overly melodramatic and simplistic, but Dumas’ novels were popular in their day and remain so today.
