4 The Count of Monte Cristo Seven Deadly Sins The world is filled with sins and virtues, wrongs and rights, bad and good, and they are all either persecuted or praised.
But there are seven main sins, the seven deadly sins, pride, avarice, envy, wrath, lust, gluttony and sloth.
The Count of Monte Cristo (French: Le Comte de Monte-Cristo) is an adventure novel by French author Alexandre Dumas (Alexandre Dumas père).
It is one of the author's most popular works, along with The Three Musketeers. Like many of his novels, it is expanded from plot outlines suggested by his collaborating ghostwriter Auguste Maquet.
One of the characters in The Count of Monte Cristo, Madame Danglars, demonstrated two of these deadly sins.
One of the sins Madame Danglars demonstrated was lust by having had a lot of affairs with other men while she was married.
(Dumas 109) Fernand is a very prideful man and will do almost anything to keep it.
The second deadly sin Fernand demonstrates is wrath.
He was happier, but he was still worried because he was afraid Edmond might reappear at any moment.
Almost immediately after their marriage, he and his wife moved away; the Catalan village held too many dangers and too many memories.
