Un cas de conscience
Alexandre Dumas

One evening after dinner, while Garibaldi is boasting about his achievements to an admiring group of aristocratic Englishwomen, the young Countess Argyle asks him an awkward question: In your whole, hectic life, what is the one thing that you most regret having done? The illustrious general’s reply comes immediately: it was an injustice he inflicted… on a dog.

An expurgated version (the most notable cuts being some long anticlerical passages) of Un cas de conscience was published in the newspaper Le Soleil between 4 and 17 June 1866. This is the first time Dumas’s novella has been published in full. The amazing adventures of a Garibaldian dog are the perfect occasion to enjoy Alexandre Dumas’s narrative virtuosity.

Alexandre Dumas integrates a dog into a tale of his times. For a story within a story and some exciting adventures.
