Dumas, a famous French writer, has a representative work called The Count of Monte Cristo Entrusted by the captain, the protagonist named Edmond, sent a letter to Napoleonic party. However, he was framed by two despicable people and the grand justice. The work tells Edmond's miserable suffering and his successful revenge years later. With vivid as well as ingeniously conceived plots and strongly artistic appeal, this work had produced a profound influence in the development of western revenge literature. While Nirvana in Fire, the adapted work of the same network novel written by Haiyan, mainly tells the overturns of injustices, the support for wise emperor, and revitalization of nation. Mei Changsu, the most intelligent person in that era, got his revenge by contending with disloyal ministers. With the booming population of this TV series, many people assume that Nirvana in Fire was the Chinese version of The Count of Monte Cristo. This paper tries to analyze the similarities and difference by comparing the two works. Furthermore, it tries to get the deep reasons for the similarities and differences.
