The Musketeers

I’ve been watching a limited series on Hulu titled“The Musketeers.” It is based on the characters of the Alexander Dumas historical novel, “The Three Musketeers,” written in the 1800s.

In watching this series, the term “swashbuckling’ repeatedly comes to mind with visions of Dumas’s Musketeers and the Earl Flynn movies of the 1930s.

The Dumas novel is the epitome of “swashbuckling swashbucklers.” Swashbuckling is described as “engaging in daring and romantic adventures with bravado or flamboyance.” Swashbucklers are described as “heroic protagonistic characters who are skilled in swordplay, acrobatics, guile and chivalrous ideals.”

“The Musketeers” is all of this and I highly recommend this series on Hulu. You will be transported to a time in history filled with good, bad, divine, ugly, faith and a lot of swashbuckling! I didn’t want it to end!
