concerning Napoléon Bonaparte, ou trente ans de l'histoire de France

     There is a delightful story associated with this play. Harel was very insistent that Dumas write the play. Mlle. Georges who was Harel's wife or concubine, and herself a former mistress of Napoleon (she even volunteered to go into exile with him) told Dumas he could stay in her bedroom until the play was finished. Dumas replied, gallantly "The play will be finished in a week." Whereupon, Mlle. Georges pouted and said, "Why so fast?" (See France's Greatest Adventure Writer Dramatizes the Life of Napoleon—The Long Hot Summer of 1830 for more details.)
