The Count of Monte Cristo

do you think that dantes's love for Morrel is a selfless or selfish love? explain your answer.

edmond dantes disguised as both sinbad the sailor and the representative from thomson and french,saves the life of Morrel. he waits until the last possible moment to let Morrel know that he is not ruined financially. in one more minute Morrel'ssuicide attempt would have beensuccessful. in sense, Dantes is playing god by having that much control over Morrel's life.

I think that within the context of the story, this is simply how Edmond does things. He does save the man's bussiness, he just does it with the fair of Edmond Dentes. Edmond's mandate was to punish the people that wronged him and reward the prople that helped him.
