Georges is a short novel by Alexandre Dumas, père set on Isle de France (Mauritius), from 1810 to 1824. This novel is of particular interest to scholars because Dumas reused many of the ideas and plot devices later in The Count of Monte Cristo and because race and racism are at the center of this novel, and this was a topic on which Dumas, despite his part-African ancestry, rarely wrote. Georges was first published in 1843. It has been republished in English as George; or, the Planter of the Isle of France.
The novel concerns the life of Georges, the son of a wealthy mulatto plantation owner named Pierre Munier, on Mauritius. While part-black, Georges is very light-skinned, if not white. As a child, he witnesses the British invasion of Isle de France. Because Georges’ father is a mulatto, the other plantation owners refuse to let him fight alongside them. Instead, Georges’ father leads the blacks and delivers a crushing blow against a British column. Refusing to acknowledge that a man of colour saved them, M. Malmedie and the other white plantation owners ignore the accomplishment.
