The Count of Monte Cristo


by Alexandre Dumas

Emmanuel Herbault

Character Analysis

As a young man, Emmanuel is one of the last clerks to continue working for M. Morrel. Whether he does this out of faith in his boss or in order to woo his daughter Julie is debatable, but, in any case, he does not abandon the firm or the family. His patience is rewarded: he ends up marrying Julie.
