The play was an instant success, and Giuseppe Verdi immediately set about putting the story to music. The title character is Marguerite Gautier, who is based on Marie Duplessis , the real-life lover of author Dumas, fils. Set in midth-century France, the novel tells the tragic love story between fictional characters Marguerite Gautier, a demimondaine or courtesan suffering from consumption , and Armand Duval, a young bourgeois. Armand falls in love with Marguerite and ultimately becomes her lover. He convinces her to leave her life as a courtesan and to live with him in the countryside. This idyllic existence is interrupted by Armand's father, who, concerned with the scandal created by the illicit relationship, and fearful that it will destroy Armand's sister's chances of marriage, convinces Marguerite to leave.

Dumas' paternal great-grandparents were a French nobleman and a Haitian woman. In boarding schools, Dumas fils was constantly taunted by his classmates. These issues all profoundly influenced his thoughts, behaviour, and writing. During Dumas moved to Saint-Germain-en-Laye to live with his father. There, he met Marie Duplessis, a young courtesan who would be the inspiration for his romantic novel The Lady of the Camellias.
Adapted into a play, it was titled in English especially in the United States as Camille and is the basis for Verdi's opera, La Traviata. Although he admitted that he had done the adaptation because he needed the money, he had a great success with the play.

After this, he virtually abandoned writing novels though his semi-autobiographical L'Affaire Clemenceau achieved some success.
