Camille is a woman who belongs to the latter class and her associates are of the Bohemian sort, actors, painters and literary folk, and her male friends are an old Duke, who showers money on her, and a Count who is her escort to places of amusement. Camille is beautiful, accomplished, and at the period of the opening of the story, is satiated with pleasure and her better nature asserts itself. She longs for something genuine, a love that is good and pure. Armand du Val is the son of a nobleman and theirs is an old and honored family. He sees Camille and falls in love with her, worshiping her at a distance. He calls at her house in company of a friend and the visit is most opportune. Camille has returned from the opera with the Count and he bores her with his coarse and unwelcome attentions. Armand is introduced and his frank, manly avowal of love comes like a revelation and is sweet music to her ears. For the first time in her eventful life she loves and is deliriously happy. There is a season of bliss for the young couple. Camille removes to the country and Armand is in constant attention until their dream is shattered. A sister of Armand is betrothed to a young nobleman and the father of the groom learns of Armand's infatuation for Camille, and breaks the news to his father. Camille is induced to break with Armand so that the young couple may marry and be happy and no scandal shall mar their bliss. Armand does not understand and Camille will not explain. Armand denounces her for a flirt. He creates a scene in a gambling house, hurling Camille from him brutally and throwing his winnings in her face. There is a duel with the Count, her former love, and Armand is exiled in disgrace. The dread disease, consumption, lays hold of Camille and she is in the throes of death with her beauty gone. Armand is summoned by his father and goes to Camille, but, alas! too late! She sees him, imprints one long loving kiss on his lips and expires in his arms.
