The Count of Monte Cristo Chapter 51 Summary

Pyramus and Thisbe

  • Back at the Villefort's pad, Max and his sweetheart, Valentine de Villefort (Villefort's daughter from his first marriage), talk about how much they love each other and how they'll never get to be together.
  • They are lovey-dovey.
  • You see, Mr. Villefort Sr. hates the Morrel family, and he wants Valentine to marry Franz d'Epinay.
  • Max is poor, and, so, he's not really a "catch" for Valentine.
  • The Count arrives at the Villeforts' to pay a visit, and the lovers separate.
