Author. In 1831 he was legally recognized by his father and taken from his mother, who first tried to escape with her son. In boarding schools, where he was sent, his schoolmates who taunted him about his illegitimate birth made him miserable. He never forgave them. Dumas studied at the Institution Goubaux and the College Bourbon, but left the school to devote to writing. In 1844 he moved to Saint-Germain-en-Laye to live with his father. He met there Marie Duplessis, a young courtesan, who died of tuberculosis in 1847 and inspired his novel, "La Dame aux Camelias." It was adapted into a play. At first the play was rejected by one theater after another. Finally Theatre Du Vaudeville produced it. The novel gained huge success which enabled Dumas fils to pay off some of his debts and help his mother. Before 1852 he wrote twelve other novels. "A Prodigal Father" in 1859 was an interpretation of his father's character. In 1867 Dumas published his autobiographical novel, "L'affaire Clemenceau," which is considered one of his best works. Dumas was admitted to the Academie Francaise in 1874. He wrote several plays, among which "Denise" in 1885 and "Francillon" in 1887. His last play, "The Return from Thebes," was left unfinished. He died at Marly-le-Roi on November 1895. (bio by: Jelena)
