The Three Musketeers George Rignold , Bernard Espinasse , 1899 single work drama historical fiction

'The plot is the effort of D'Artagnan, the Gascon gallant, to serve the, Queen, and so save her from the snares of Richelieu, who is pictured as endeavouring to compass the downfall of her Majesty in order to promote his ends with the King. To accomplish his purpose the Cardinal employs Milady, an adventurous, beautiful, but unscrupulous woman whose purpose it is the duty of D'Artagnan to frustrate. The hero fulfills his mission, after many exciting and sensational adventures, which help to create a plot of intense interest and graphic impressions. In some respect, the authors do not adhere closely to the book, but the departure may be justified inasmuch as it adds to the melodramatic effect... ('Three Musketeers at the Criterion', p.2).
