It explores the fraught relationship of gentleman and amateur naturalist Charles Smithson and Sarah Woodruff, the former governess and independent woman with whom he falls in love. Fowles has represented Sarah Woodruff and Charles in a very contrasting manner, one being so independent and other like more stereotypical male characters, that also receives attention for its tn reatment of gender issues. The novel builds on Fowles ' authority in Victorian literature, both following and critiquing many of the conventions of period novels.
With the transformation of Edmond into the Count of Monte Cristo, he experiences a metaphorical death, the death of his virtuous self. Unjustifiably, the Count views himself as “divine,” vindicating his actions as simply ruling according to God’s will. The Count has many aliases-most notably Sinbad the Sailor, the Abbé Busoni, and Lord Wilmore-which he uses to manipulate his enemies and their relatives. Living up to his “divine” title, the Count does not forget to reward his few friends, such including Monsieur Morrel and his family. Throughout the story, we witness snippets of primitive Edmond when he is confronted with his resurfaced feelings for Mercédès and his unintended affection for Maximilien Morrel.
