The Three Musketeers

Extracts from this document...


The Three Musketeers Character traits, personality and emotions of D'Artagnan A hero is such a big word for us and when we hear it a lot of traits pop up into our heads. Heroes are very powerful people to us that give us their help when we need it the most and we look up to them. In the novel, The Three Musketeers, Alexandre Dumas really describes the character traits and personality of d'Artagnan as brave, persevering and fickle which leads to a lot of problems throughout the story as well as to the rescue of some people and death of others. In the novel, d'Artagnan always has a way through his problems whether it's by being brave or rash. These traits come from him in part because he is a Gascon. ...read more.


D'artagnan's personality also tells us a lot about the persevering character that he plays in the novel. He will do anything to get who or what he wants. When he was leaving his home in the beginning, his dream was to become a musketeer, he accomplished this and at the end of the novel, the cardinal even offered him to be the lieutenant of the musketeers. D'artagnan was also very persevering because he never gave up on something that he had promised to do. In the novel, he has promised to get the diamond tags back to the queen on time. He tells her "And I swear to you before God that if I'm caught while carrying out your orders, I'll die rather than do or say anything that would compromise anyone." ...read more.


Although he is very fickle, his loving emotions are still present. We can tell that he loves Constance when he tells her "Be generous, Madame, confide in me. Haven't you seen in my eyes how much devotion and sympathy there is in my heart?" He is letting her know that because his love is so big for her, he will do anything to help and protect her. Clearly, d'Artagnan shows us what a loving gentlemen he is although young. To conclude, in the novel, The Three Musketeers, Alexandre Dumas does a great job at describing d'Artagnan's character as strong, persevering and fickle. His traits are a big part of being able to discover who Milady really was and what her evil purposes were. D'Artagnan is the biggest hero in this novel and anyone can look up to him and admire him as a great character. ?? ?? ?? ?? Mendoza 1 ...read more.
