A deceptively simple story and the shortest of Dumas's most famous novels, The Black Tulip(1850) weaves historical events surrounding a brutal murder into a tale of romantic love. Set in Holland in 1672, this timeless political allegory draws on the violence and crimes of history, making a case against tyranny and creating a symbol of justice and tolerance: the fatefultulipa negra.
