All for One and One for All
Recasting Alexandre Dumas as a Popular Educator in France during the New Imperialism
By separating Alexandre Dumas's works from the more elite “world of letters” and reclassifying them as unsophisticated and suitable to the more rudimentary educational needs of the common working classes and adolescents for French nation-building purposes during the French Third Republic, intellectuals, policymakers, and of reformers of education found a way to simultaneously critique Dumas’s “Africanness” indirectly while praising his Frenchness openly.
