Example text

Yet Dumas continues to poke gentle fun at Porthos in this novel as he did in The Three Musketeers. He once again highlights Porthos舗s unflagging appetite for food and love of clothes and makes much of his preoccupation with titles舒now called M. le Baron du Vallon de Pierrefonds, he hopes to be named a duke. Indeed, whereas in The Three Musketeers Porthos at times lacked a single, presentable suit of clothes, he now has acquired a vast wardrobe whose sole purpose is to guarantee that he will always be in fashion and will be prepared for any occasion.

In the nineteenth century, Alfred de Vigny wrote a poem, 舠La Prison,舡 on the seventeenth-century captive and Auguste Arnould and created a five-act prose drama titled L舗Homme au masque de fer (The Man in the Iron Mask). Paul Lacroix (writing as Paul L. Jacob, Bibliophile) first published his novel about the Mask in La Revue de Paris. Victor Hugo called his never-completed dramatization of the story Les Jumeaux (The Twins). Dumas himself, as he so often did with his successful novels, would also transform his narrative about the unfortunate prisoner into a five-act drama entitled Le Prisonnier de la Bastille: Fin des Mousquetaires (The Prisoner of the Bastille: The End of the Musketeers).

At first, this meant encouraging Mouston to eat more food so that he would match his master舗s girth. Now, however, the valet has grown more rotund than his master, and the already-made suits are too large for Porthos to wear. In an effort to resolve the problem and assuage Porthos舗s ego, d舗Artagnan takes his friend to see the King舗s own tailor, a man who will prove to be too busy to address Porthos舗s sartorial needs. As it happens, though, the comic playwright MoliȲre is also present at the tailor舖s, and he agrees, with a wink to d舗Artagnan, to attend to the problem.
