The Corsican Brothers(1845)
A novel by Alexandre Dumas
The bonds that tie family together are among the strongest on earth. But what of those between two brothers born as Siamese twins? The Corsican Brothers is a richly drawn tale of fraternal love and revenge. Alexandre Dumas weaves the story of Siamese twins, separated at birth physically but never separated in spirit. When one of the brothers is murdered, the other leaves Corsica for Paris to avenge the killing. Dumas, a master storyteller, captivates readers with his fabulous travel-log descriptions of 19th century Corsica and France as much as with the exciting story of these two brothers. Douglas Fairbanks, Jr. re-popularized Dumas's famous tale by starring in a 1941 Silver Screen version of The Corsican Brothers.
