    Alexandre Dumas fils
Alexandre Dumas, fils (1824-1895) was the illegitimate son of Alexandre Dumas, père, who followed in his father's footsteps becoming a celebrated writer, author and playwright. In 1831 his father legally recognized him and ensured the young Dumas received the best education possible at the Institution Goubaux and the Collège Bourbon. At that time, the law allowed the elder Dumas to take the child away from his mother. Her agony inspired Dumas fils to write about tragic female characters. In almost all of his writings, he emphasized the moral purpose of literature and in his 1858 play, Le fils Naturel (The Illegitimate Son), he espoused the belief that if a man fathers an illegitimate child, then he has an obligation to legitimize the child and marry the woman. In 1844 Dumas, fils moved to Saint-Germain-en-Laye. There, he met Marie Duplessis, a young courtesan who would be the inspiration for his romantic novel, Camille (La Dame aux Camillas). His other works include: Atala (1848), Diane de Lys (1853), L'Affaire Clemenceau (1867), La Princesse Georges (1871) and L'Etrangère (1876).
