Dumas于1802年出生于法国，是着名的将军Thomas-Alexandre Davy de La Pailleterie的儿子，也是非洲裔后裔奴役的MarieCésetteDumas的孙子。他的姓，杜马，是从他的祖母那里领养的。虽然由于杜马将军的血统和名望，这个家庭享有一定的等级和联系，但他们并不富裕，1806年，当杜马斯将军死于癌症时，他们的情况更加恶化。没有多少钱用于教育，杜马斯设法教育自己并利用家庭关系。当拿破仑最后一次失败后法国君主制得以恢复后，杜马斯于1822年前往巴黎寻求谋生，最初打算当律师。他在未来的法国国王奥尔良公爵的家中找到了工作。杜马斯不满意他在奥尔良公爵家中的新职位。他几乎立即开始写剧本，与演员François-Joseph Talma合作。他的戏剧是即时的热门歌曲，以喧闹，充满活力的风格写成，充满了暴力和戏剧性的情节曲折。杜马从他在杂志上发表的戏剧和文章中赚到足够的钱，使他能够在1830年成为一名全职作家。当第二次革命占领法国时，杜马斯拿起武器。他在街头挣扎，以取代他的前雇主，奥尔良公爵，成为国王路易斯 – 菲利普。 Dumas在19世纪30年代末开始以小说形式工作。他注意到报纸正在出版系列小说，他将他现有的一部剧改写成小说“Le Capitaine Paul”。他很快就创立了一个工作室并聘请作家来研究他所创作的想法和概要，从而发明了一种商业模式，今天仍有一些作家。历史学家不同意他的合作者的贡献程度，但毫无疑问，杜马通过依靠其他作家充实思想，并有时写出大部分书籍，积极地增加了他的作品。这个过程使他能够最大化他的收入，并且作为一个作家变得非常多产。 （杜马经常被字或线支付的事实反映在他的书中对话的过度。）在19世纪40年代，杜马的主要小说被编写和出版。这些作品包括击剑大师，基督山伯爵和三个火枪手，体现了杜马的风格：爆炸性的开场动作，无尽的兴奋，简洁的写作和连续的格式。这些地块没有严格形成;相反，他们蜿蜒曲折，抵制典型的叙事结构。角色由他们的行为定义，而不是内部独白或其他心理因素。总而言之，杜马斯发表了大量的资料：超过10万页的小说，戏剧，文章，旅行记录和其他着作。杜马斯于1840年与伊达·费里尔结婚，但历史学家认为，他有将近40名情妇，并且在他的一生中从四到七个孩子中生长。杜马斯只承认了一个儿子，也叫亚历山大·杜马斯，后者凭借自己的权利成为了一位着名的作家。杜马在他的一生中过度奢侈，一度建造了一座耗资50万金法郎的城堡。 （当时，普通劳动者每天的收入约为2-3法郎。）由于他的生活方式，尽管取得了许多成功，但杜马斯在以后的生活中也没钱了。他写了几部收视不佳的小说，试图鼓励更多的收入。
Born in France in 1802, Dumas is the son of the famous general Thomas-Alexandre Davy de La Pailleterie and the grandson of Marie Césette Dumas, who is enslaved by African descent. His last name, Duma, was adopted from his grandmother. Although the family enjoyed a certain level and connection due to the descent and fame of General Duma, they were not wealthy. In 1806, when General Dumars died of cancer, their situation worsened. There is not much money for education, and Dumars seeks to educate itself and use family relationships. When the French monarchy was restored after the last defeat of Napoleon, Dumars traveled to Paris in 1822 to seek a living and initially intended to be a lawyer. He found a job in the home of the future Duke of France, Orleans. Dumars is not satisfied with his new position at the Duke of Orleans. He started writing the script almost immediately, working with the actor François-Joseph Talma. His play is an instant hit song, written in a noisy, vibrant style, full of violent and dramatic plot twists and turns. Duma earned enough money from the dramas and articles he published in the magazine, enabling him to become a full-time writer in 1830. When the second revolution occupied France, Dumars took up arms. He struggled on the streets to replace his former employer, Duke of Orleans, and became King Louis-Philippe. Dumas began working as a novel in the late 1930s. He noticed that the newspaper was publishing a series of novels, and he rewrote his existing drama into the novel “Le Capitaine Paul.” He quickly created a studio and hired a writer to study the ideas and summaries he created, inventing a business model, and there are still some writers today. Historians disagree with the degree of contribution of his collaborators, but there is no doubt that Duma has actively increased his work by relying on other writers to enrich his thoughts and sometimes writing most books. This process enabled him to maximize his income and became very productive as a writer. (The fact that the Duma is often paid by words or lines is reflected in the excessive dialogue in his book.) In the 1840s, the main novel of the Duma was written and published. These works include the Master of Fencing, Count of Monte Cristo and three Musketeers, reflecting the style of the Duma: explosive opening moves, endless excitement, concise writing and continuous formatting. These plots are not strictly formed; instead, they are tortuous and resist typical narrative structures. Roles are defined by their behavior, not internal monologues or other psychological factors. All in all, Dumars has published a large amount of information: more than 100,000 pages of novels, plays, articles, travel records and other works. Dumars married Ida Ferrier in 1840, but historians believe that he has nearly 40 mistresses and grew up from four to seven children in his life. Dumas only recognized a son, also called Alexander Dumars, who became a famous writer with his own rights. Duma was over-luxury in his life and once built a castle costing 500,000 gold francs. (At the time, ordinary workers earned about 2-3 francs a day.) Due to his lifestyle, despite many successes, Dumars had no money in his later life. He wrote several poorly-listed novels and tried to encourage more income.
