concerning Le Comte Hermann

     Count Hermann itself is not one of Dumas most interesting plays. It reads like a modernization of Tristan/King Mark and Yseult set in the 1840's in Germany or Switzerland. Doctor Sturler is Count Hermann's protégé (the son of an innkeeper educated by Count Hermann to be a doctor, and his personal physician.) Sturler renounces his fiancée to Count Hermann who marries her. Then the good doctor proceeds to embroil Count Hermann's nephew with his wife in the hopes that the elderly Count will disinherit his nephew from jealousy and leave all his considerable fortune to Dr. Sturler. He is found out. Hermann and his nephew reconcile, and the Count makes a bequest to Doctor Sturler's father, the innkeeper. Furious, the doctor embarks on his experiment.
