Transcript of COMC Prezi

Villefort is selfish, meaning he does his actions soley for himself, beacuse he burns the letter that Dantes was supposed to deliver that had Bonapartist information. "'If he knows what's in this letter,' thought Villefort, 'and if he ever learns that Noitier is Villefort's father, I'm ruined, ruined forever!'" (Dumas 29). He makes it look like it benefits Dantes, but in reality, he did it more himself and himself only. Edmond Dantes Mercedes Mercedes is faithful, meaning she stays true to her fiance, because she makes it clear to Fernand that she will stay with Dantes. "'I love Edmond Dantes,' replied the girl coldly,'and no other man will ever be my husband'" (COMC 12). This shows that she will not let any other man come between Edmond and her. Her attitude shows that Edmond will be the only love in her life. Baron Danglars Fernand Mondego aka Count de Morcerf Moniseur Morrel Abbe Faria Gérard de Villefort Gaspard Caderousse Napolean Bonaparte Sinbad the Sailor Renee Noirtier Marquis and Marquise (Rene's Parents) Blancas The Count of Monte Cristo Dandre The Count of Monte Cristo is very vengeful character because he's plotting revenge against the people that did wrong to him previously, such as Baron Danglars and the Count de Morcerf. Caderousse's wife Baron Danglars The Abbe Faria is smart, meaning clever and educated, because he told Dantes what he knew. He said, "'When you know mathematics, physics, history and three or four living languages I speak, you'll know everything I do'" (Dumas 59). This clearly states what Abbe Faria knows, which is astonishing. It shows that he is smart. Emmanuel Herbaut Julie Morrel Maximilien Morrel Moniseur Morrel is proud, meaning he honors his family name, because he almost kills himself just to evade not being able to pay his bills. "[H]e heard Coces announce,'The representative of the firm of Thomson and French.' Morrel moved the pistol toward his mouth" (Dumas 129). He knew the representative was coming to collect Morrel's payments, so Morrel had planned to kill himself when he heard the representative announced. He knew he wouldn't be able to pay these bills, and he thought this was to only way to stay honorable. Emmanuel is loyal, meaning he stays by his friends, because he stays with the Morrel Family when almost everyone in the company leaves. "Of the numerous employees who had formerly peopled the offices, only two remained: one was a young man of twenty-three or twenty-four named Emmanuel Herbaut, who... had stayed on with the firm..." (Dumas 116). Even though many people had left the firm because they were not doing very well, Emmanuel had stayed with them. Maximilien morrerl is greatful because he wants to repay the deed that was to to protect his father so he wants to do a heroic action every year an the fifth of setember. "it was the fifth of september which is the anniversary of a day when my father was miraculously saved. as far within my power, i try to celebrate that day every year by preforming some heroic action"(dumas 164). Maximilien knows that without the miracle that saved his dad his family would have been financially ruined. This is why he is greatful. Benedetto aka Andrea Cavalcanti Sinbad the sailor is benevolent, meaning charitable and kind, because he helps the Morrel family in their time of need. "Morrel took the purse... In one compartment of the purse was the bill for two hundred and eighty-seven thousand five hundred fancs. It was marked paid. In the other compartment was a diamond the size of a walnut..." (Dumas 129). This purse was basically given by Sinbad to the Morrel family. The Morrel family was about the crumble to pieces due to debt, and Sinbad the Sailor saved them with this gesture. Jacopo Madame Caderusse is a very cautious character meaning she questions everything because she doesn't want to get cheated. "His wife looked at it for a moment, then said in a dull voice, 'What if it were only an imitation diamond?'"(Dumas 111). This shows that she thinks she is being cheated. She is cautious because if they didn't get anything, then everything was a big waste of time. Ali Haydee Signor Bertuccio Assunta Monsieur Joannes, the jeweler Monsieur Lucien Debray Monsieur Beauchamp Danglars is stingy, meanig he is overly protective of his money, because he makes his own wife pay for the losses she caused him. "'Since I give you a quarter of my winnings, you owe me a quarter of my losses...'" (Dumas 271). Over the years, Danglars had given his wife all the gains she had hrought about by her suggestions in financial investments. So, when her suggestion in financial investments loses money for Danglars, he forces his own wife to repay him in his losses. Monsieur de Chateau-Renaud Fernand is envious, meaning he wants what someone else has, because he wants what Dantes has. "'Fernand isn't the only one to be annoyed ny Dantes' happy return...'" (Dumas 15). Caderousse, the speaker here, is talking about Fernand and how he is envious of Dantes. Fernand loves Mercedes, but she is already Dantes'. He wants her to be his, so he is envious of Dantes. Haydee is vengeful because she comes back later in the book and puts fernand in his grave by appearing ing court and causing him to lose his case"'Nevertheless it's a glorious day for me,'contunieddatdee,her eyes flashing with fire,'for i have at last found the opportunity to avenge my father's death.'"(dumas 359) This shows that she is vengeful for Fernand killing her father and she finally got her revenge. Lucien Debray is a back-stabber, meaning he goes behind his friend's back, because he has an affair with his friend's, Danglars', wife (Madame Danglars). When Danglars is talking to his wife about his knowledge of her affairs, he says, "'The result of my pretended ignoranceis that there hasn't been one of your lovers, from Monsieur de Villefort down to Monsiuer Debray, who hasn't trembled before me'" Maximilien Morrel is depressed, meaning extremely and deeply sad, because he thinks Valentine dies and wants to commit suicide. "Very well, yes you want to die and your will is inflexible. Yes, you're profoundly unhappy and, as you say only a miracle could cure you"(Dumas 526). This shows his atittude that all he wants is to die and the count says this. It shows the lowest point of his sadness. Benedetto can be described as cunning meaning he is very sneaky with his actions, because he escapes from his marriage contract signing ceremony before the police arrives and without letting anybody notice. His anticipation of the police shows that he is intelligent and his escape shows that he is sneaky. This put together shows his cunning personality. This is shown when the Count of Monte Cristo says, "aman who had broken into my house to rob me was killed, apparently by his accomplice. In trying to save his life, they undressed him and threw his clothes into a corner, where the police picked them up. The police took his coat and trousers, but they overlooked his vest" (Dumas 408). Then it says, "Andrea began to edge quietly toward the door' (Dumas 408). This shows Benedetto knew the police was gonna come and it was in his best interest to escape. Noitier is clever, meaning witty, because he can express his thoughts in unconventional ways. After calling for a notary and some discussion, and after Noitier had "told" the notary he did not want Valentine in the will, the notary asked, "'Are you disinheriting your granddaughter because she's about to marry against your wishes?'..." (Dumas 251). Just by communicating by blinking, he had acieved his goal to try to get Valentine from marrying Franz. Instead of just blinking out a sentence, which would take forever, he called for a notary and took her out of the will, which was genius. Julie is trusting, meaning she had trust in her fellow human beings, because she goes where Sinbad the Sailor tells her to. "'...you will receive a letter signed 'Sinbad the Sailor.' Do exactly what that letter tells you to do, no matter how strange it may appear to you.'
'Very well'" (Dumas 123). Julie blindly followed this stranger's directions. The man could have kidnapped her, but she had such a high standard for humans and such a trust in her fellow humans that she followed the directions of a stranger. Bertuccio is on edge, meaning paranoid, because he always acts this way when people of his past showed up again. At the dinner party he sees Villefort, the man who he swore revenge on, and Benedetto who killed his sister-in-law. When he sees them, he lets out a little shriek and runs away showing that he is worried and can not handle is emotions. King Louis XVIII d'Avrigny (Doctor) Valentine de Villfort Valentine is faithful meaning that she keeps he promise to Maximelean that she would marry him and she has to stall her wedding to albert. "The next morning at dawn Maximilien and Valentine were walking arm and arm along the shore" (dumas 530). This shows that she kept her promise and had ended up happy togther with Maximilien Jacopo is a savior, meaning he saves lives, because he saves Edmond's life. At one point, he is referred to as "...Jacopo, the sailor who had saved Dantes' life..." (Dumas 84). This clearly shows that he saved Edmond's life. The fact that he saved Edmond's life justifies him as a savior. Caderousse is greedy, meaning he cannot get enough of money, because he kills his wife and a jeweler to get more money. "...it was the corpse of Madame Caderousse [that had killed by Caderousse]... the unfortunate jeweler was lying on the floor in a pool of blood..." (Dumas 195). Caderousse had killed the jeweler after the jeweler had paid them, so he could have the diamond and the money he got from the diamond initially. He had also killed his wife. He could not have had enough just to have the large sum from the diamond, but he was so greedy he wanted double. Napoleon can be described as assidious, meaning persevering because he comes back from the Isle of Elba to try to take back France. This is described by King Louis XVIII when he says, "The upsurper in France! Is he marching on Paris?" (Dumas 43). The kings is obviously shocked at Napoleon's attempt to come back in take over France again. This shows that Napoleon is striving to achieve this goal no matter what the consequences may be. Edmond Dantes can be described as smitten meaning deeply in love because he acts eternally happy and seems oblivious to the things going on around him. This feeling can shown when it says, "... The two lovers went on their way, as blissful as two souls rising up to heaven" (Dumas 17). This simile shows that the amount of happiness Dantes is feeling because of this love is so great that he feels like he is in heaven. Louis Dantes can be described as forgiving meaning he doesn't hold other people's bad deeds against them because he doesn't mind the fact that Cadourousse almost starved him to death. When Cadourousse knocks on the door he says, "Just the same, though, he's a neighbor who once did us a favor, so he's welcome here" (Dumas 9). He ignores the fact that Cadourousse nearly starved him to death and was willing to give him decent hospitality. He didn't have to do this. Danglars can be described as manipulating, meaning one who tricks other people into doing what they want, because he brainwashed Fernand into helping him betray Dantes. In the book this is shown when it says, "'Poor fellow!' exclaimed Danglars, pretending to pity the young man from the bottom of his heart" (Dumas 14). He is pretending to show sympathy to Fernand because he knows Fernand will help him if he is kind enough. It's a trap!!! Rene's Parents are loyal, meaning loyal to their government, because they are loyalists and respect the king. They say to Villefort, "'Don't neglect your duty in order to stay with us. Go where the service of the king calls you'" (Dumas 23). This shows that they are loyal to the king and respect him, so they want everyone who works for him to do their job. They would even give up their joy of having Villefort around for him to go and do his government job. Madame Danglars Madame Danglars is unloyal, meaning she does not stay true to her husband, because she cheats on him. Danglars says to her, "'...there hasn't been one of your lovers, from Monsieur de Villefort down to Monsieur Debray, who hasn't trembled before me'" (Dumas 273). This means that she had lovers, or misstresses. This very fact shows that she is unloyal. If she were loyal to her husband, she would not cheat on him. Renee is observant, meaning she pays
close attention to detail, because she noticed something on the letter of denounciation that the others did not see. When she noticed this she said, "But that letter is anonymous, and it's addressed to the public prosecutor, not to you" (Dumas 23). This shows that she can pick out small details that the common person does not notice. King Louis XVIII is humorous, meaning he likes to joke about things, because when news of the upsurper was brought by Blancas he made a joke of it. When Blancas commented that there was a "storm" brewing in the south, King Louis said, "I know for certain that the weather is fine down there" (Dumas 35). He did not take this possible threat seriously. He instead turned into a small little joke for his entertainment. Blancas Blancas is paranoid, meaning he is on edge about many things, because he is worried that Napoleon will come back to take over France. When the king asks him what he is talking about he replies, "... I'm extremely worried, sire. I have good reason to believe that a storm is brewing in the South" (Dumas 35). He is very anxious and tense about the people in the south who are starting to revolt again. He is afraid and somewhat paranoid. d'Avrigny is honest, meaning he speaks his mind, becasue he tells Villefort that he believes that somebody is poisoning people in the family. Lord Wilmore Lord Wilmore is generous, meaning he benefits others when he doesn't need to necessarily, because he gives Monieur Morrel more time to pay his bills. He asked Morrel, "'How long would you like [to postpone your payment]?'
Morrel hesistated. "Two months,' he said.
'Very well, then, I'll give you three'" (Dumas 122-123). Lord Wilmore did not even need to give Morrel any more time at all, but he gave him more than Morrel asked. He was being nice by giving him more time, and generous at giving him another whole month. Albert de Morcerf Albert is understanding, meaning he can see where people come from, because he does not duel with the Count because he understands why the Count did what he did. He said the Count, "'I reproached you for revealing my father's conduct in Greece, for I buelieved that, however hwo guilty he may have been, you had no right to punish him. But today I know that you have that right. It is not Fernand Mondego's betrayal of Ali Pasha that makes me so quick to excuse you, but the fisherman Fernand's betrayal of you, and the unspeakable suffering it led to. I therefore say to you, count, that you were right to avenge my father, and I, his son, thank you for not having done more than you did!'" (Dumas 384). Dandre is fretful, meaning worried and agitated, because he seemed this way when he came in to see the king. "'Ah, here's Monsieur Dandr[e]!' cried the duke. The Minister of Police had just appeared on the threshold. He was pale, trembling and almost wild-eyed with terror" (Dumas 37). If this isn't an accurate depiction of a fretful person, I'm not sure what is. It clearly paints a picture of a fretful man. The Count de Morcerf is proud. Abbe Busoni Baron Franz Franz is assiduous, meaning perservering, because he trys to show to Noirtier that he is a worthy husband for Valentine. Even when he knows that Valentine does not want to marry him he is still willing to impress her grandfather. He is trying his hardest even though it may be for no reason at all and eventually it turned out like that. Abbe Busoni is frank, meaning to the point, because he tells things the way they are to Caderousse when he is dying. "'Help!' cried Caderousse. 'I need a doctor, not a priest! Maybe I'm not fatally wounded, maybe life can still be saved!'
'Your wounds are so fatal that without the three drops of that liquid I gave you just now you would be dead already.'"
'What a strange priest you are!' murmured Caderousse. 'Your drive a dying man into despair instead of consoling him!'" (Dumas 341). This shows Busoni being extremely frank, even at a man's deathbed. Yet, Busoni does not do this simply because he is mean--no--he knows Caderousse does not have much time, so he knows he must be frank. Busoni tells Caderousse the way things are, and doesn't play around the truth. Assunta is welcoming, meaning she brings people in, because she basically adopted Benedetto. When Benedetto was left without anybody to care for him, she took him in. She didn't have to that considering that he is another person to feed but she did anyway. She welcomed him in to the family and raised him up like he was her own child Monsieur de Chateau-Renaud is a reiliable, meaning he is there when you need him, because he is there for Albert before he is about to duel. Ali is reliable because he does what the Count wants him to do without question whenever the Count wants him to do it. When the Count asked Ali to jump in front of the moving cart to have him slow it down, without hesitation he did just that. Even more than that, he did exactly what the Count wanted him to do. This is what makes him reliable. Barrois Barrois is loyal, meanind he stays by those who help him, because he stays by Noirtier throughout the years. Mademoiselle Louise d'Armilly The jeweler is fair, meaning honest, because he gives Caderousse a fairly good price on the diamond. Beauchamp is a good friend because he is always there with his friend, Albert. Louise can be described as independent because she set out to become an artist on her own without anybodies help. Edouard de Villefort Edouard de Villefort is disrespectful, meaning he does not respect his elders, because he fiddles with the Count's potions without asking. Boville Boville is demanding, meaning he expects and orders to get what he was told he would get, because he demands the money Danglars should give him. Heloise de Villefort Cocles Cocles is faithful, meaning he stays with who helped him and is loyal, because he stays with Morrel's company while almost everyone left once the company started to fail. The novel says, "Of the t numerous employees who had formerly peopled the office, only two now remained: one was a young man... the other was an old one-eyed cashier named Cocl[e]s..." (Dumas 116. Many people have left Morrel due to the way business had been going, but Cocles stayed there. Morrel had been good to him, and Cocles was not ready to leave him. Morrel was loyal to him, so Cocles was loyal to Morrel. Ali Pasha Madame de Villefort is self-centered because
she does careless actions that would only benefit her and her son. These actions were harming other people's lives. To help her son Eduord inherit the family money, she poisons everybody else in the family just to do so. This is selfish. Ali Pasha is generous, meaning he helps others more than he needs to, because he was the benefactor of Fernand and left him a lot in his will. It was said that "... Pasha's confidence in him was so great that on his deathbed he entrusted him with the care of his favorite mistress and the daughter he had by her" (Dumas 355). Pasha did not need to leave Fernand anything, but he left Fernand not a sofa or vase, but people. He was so generous he left someone he actually loved. Vasaliki Tepelini Vasaliki Tepelini is perservering, meaning assiduous and mentally strong, because she went through a lot (being sold as a slave) yet still stayed strong. Her daughter said, "'Oh, mother! You said to me, 'You were free, you had a father who loved you and you were destined to be almost a queen! Look closely at that man, for it was he who made you a slave. it was he who raised your father's head on a spear, it was he who sold us...'" (Dumas 360). From this quote, you can tell that Vasaliki is strong. After being sold as a slave and everything taken away, it would be easy to crumble and give up, but you can tell that she has not given up and is still mad at Fernand. Shye is showing that she is still strong by showing emotion and caring about what was going on and not just going with the flow. Eugenie Danglars Major Bartolomeo Cavalcanti Major Bartolomeo Cavalcanti is a liar, meaning he does not tell the truth, because he agrees to be a fake father. Andrea, his fake son, said to him, "'In France a forgery like this, dear father, would cost you at least five years in Toulon... How much are you getting for being my father?... I'm gettting fifty thousand francs a year to be your son'" (Dumas 238). So, obviously, what they are doing is illegal. Yet, Bartolomeo goes along with it because he is getting paid. He, therefore, is a liar. Penelon Penelon is very respectful because when Morrel asks him to describe the Captain's maneuvers during the storm he states them as though they were the most amazing things he had ever seen.

She says to her friend, "'All men are contemptible! And I'm happy to be able to do more than hate them: now I can despise them'" (Dumas 410) Sure, she had had a couple of bad experiences with men lately, but that does not give her an excuse to assume all men are like those of late. She generalized all men, then hated them, so she is sexist.
