Aramis traps his opponent momentarily before the Englishman manages to escape. He is told by the congenial hostess that Aramis is still there — at present, entertaining the local curate and the superior of the local Jesuits. She becomes gracious to d'Artagnan and soon d'Artagnan becomes a daily visitor to Milady's house. Yet note that d'Artagnan although a young man, is astute enough not to mention the truth to Porthos; he allows Porthos to continue with his fantasies. He embraces d'Artagnan — and all worldly matters. Milady Chapter 7 Showing top 8 worksheets in the category - Milady Chapter 7. Aramis left the seminary, took fencing lessons for a year, tracked down the officer, challenged him, and killed him.
I wish you success with all of my heart. Analysis Essentially these three chapters serve to tell us more about each of the three musketeers. But if one feels rejected in love, as does Aramis, then a viable alternative to love in this world is a religious life in a monastery. Therefore, when we now see the finicky Porthos being subjected to watery soup, the wing of a scrawny chicken, inedible green beans, undrinkable wine, and a dessert that clogs the throat — all for the sake of getting Madame Coquenard to provide new musketeer equipment. Thus, for the present, Athos's real identity continues to be a secret, and his origins and background become even more intriguing.
Obviously, he is being well cared for by his servant, Mousqueton, who knows all about poaching and getting wine by lassoing it through a small window. D'Artagnan sends Planchet to the servant to see if Planchet will be recognized, and if he isn't, to find out if the count survived. Planchet wisely told the captain that d'Artagnan was out of town. But not until the last part of the novel will we discover that this beautiful girl is Milady, Lady de Winter — the evil nemesis to all of the loyalists. Upstairs, Planchet tells d'Artagnan that the cardinal's captain of the guard, Monsieur de Cavois, stopped by to extend an invitation to d'Artagnan to visit the cardinal. D'Artagnan fights Lord de Winter with cool detachment until he is able to unarm him; then graciously, he spares his life. In earlier chapters, Porthos was the one who suggested spending money on good meals.
When d'Artagnan goes to see Porthos, he pretends that he knows nothing about the dueling wound and listens attentively as Porthos fabricates a story about his tripping and hurting his knee. D'Artagnan then rides on to find Athos, the musketeer for whom he has a special liking because Athos carries himself with such proud, noble grace and conducts himself with such aristocratic authority. Remembering the description given to him of the fat little man, he looks at Bonacieux's shoes and realizes that he and Bonacieux have the same kind of red mud on their shoes. We know that d'Artagnan has a great deal of pride and ambition, so it is not surprising that he realizes that Kitty is an exceptionally pretty mistress who can satisfy his immediate needs and whom he can use to revenge himself on Milady. Athos remained in the basement, and now he has drunk over a hundred and fifty bottles of wine, he has eaten all the hams and sausages in the basement, and the innkeeper is almost financially ruined. Meanwhile, Porthos wounds his opponent in the thigh, picks him up, and carries him to the carriage. The innkeeper went to the police, but they wouldn't help him because the instructions concerning the fraudulent musketeers did not come from them.
He concludes that he is attracted to Athos because Athos seems so noble in his conduct, has such a distinguished air, and has such sudden flashes of grandeur. Disappointed, hungry, and morose, Porthos goes home. Chapter 31 presents another exciting duel scene, the type of scene that makes this novel a favorite of Hollywood filmmakers. At this point, d'Artagnan does not know that Athos is descended from nobility, but he can nevertheless recognize that Athos seems to have noble heritage. He learns that Porthos fought a duel and was seriously wounded, that he lost all of his money gambling, and that he has run up a large bill which he can't pay. Therefore, he decides to visit Athos; he tells him about Milady, but Athos is not sympathetic. He rejects the religiously correct meal of spinach and eggs, and, instead, he orders meat, game, fowl, and the bottle of wine which he rejected only moments earlier.
D'Artagnan bids farewell and tells Porthos that he will be back, about eight days later. An idea flashed into his mind: that short, fat, gray-haired man, treated without respect by the noblemen who abducted Madame Bonacieux, was Bonacieux himself! He tells d'Artagnan to leave Paris as soon as possible. When d'Artagnan approaches, Aramis's servant tries to block the door; Bazin is anxious to serve a religious master, and he fears that d'Artagnan will lure Aramis away from his current religious meditations and commitments. Although Dumas revealed to us earlier that Monsieur Bonacieux assisted in his wife's abduction, it is only in Chapter 25 that d'Artagnan becomes fully aware of this fact. He can hardly wait to rejoin the musketeers. Earlier too, he sold his beautiful English horse so that he could enjoy an elegant repast. D'Artagnan forges an answer, setting up a rendezvous for 11 p.
Nonetheless, she promises to get most of the equipment a horse, a mule, and some other things from business acquaintances, and she further promises Porthos some money. Now he plans to return to the seminary. After talking with Planchet for awhile, the count's servant leaves, and suddenly Milady's maid appears. Here, in this typical romantic novel, the power of love once again triumphs. In Chapter 33, Dumas begins building suspense for one of the novel's most significant intrigues.
Afterward, Treville is certain that the entire matter was conceived by the cardinal. Amends are finally made, however, and d'Artagnan and Athos leave Athos's old horse with the innkeeper to compensate his losses. He is not even aware that the lady's exceptionally pretty maid, Kitty, takes every opportunity to rub against him. In that encounter, injured vanity was the principal reason why Porthos challenged d'Artagnan to a duel. Kitty fears the consequences, and she doesn't want to deliver the letter, but she is finally persuaded to especially after he reminds her what vengeance Milady would take against her if she ever found out about Kitty's betrayals. Meanwhile, Porthos goes to his dinner engagement with Madame Coquenard, posing as her cousin. As long as a person loves, and is loved in return, and knows the whereabouts of his beloved, religious matters rarely fill one with anguish.
