Item Description...
"The Scarlet Pimpernel," by Baroness Orczy, is part of the "Barnes & Noble Classics"" "series, which offers quality editions at affordable prices to the student and the general reader, including new scholarship, thoughtful design, and pages of carefully crafted extras. Here are some of the remarkable features of "Barnes & Noble Classics":
  • All editions are beautifully designed and are printed to superior specifications; some include illustrations of historical interest. "Barnes & Noble Classics "pulls together a constellation of influences--biographical, historical, and literary--to enrich each reader's understanding of these enduring works. In the year 1792, Sir Percy and Lady Marguerite Blakeney are the darlings of British society--he is known as one of the wealthiest men in England and a dimwit;she is French, a stunning former actress, and "the cleverest woman in Europe"--and they find themselves at the center of a deadly political intrigue. The Reign of Terror controls France, and every day aristocrats in Paris fall victim to Madame la Guillotine. Only one man can rescue them--the Scarlet Pimpernel--a master of disguises who leaves a calling card bearing only a signature red flower. As the fascinating connection between the Blakeneys and this mysterious hero is revealed, they are forced to choose between love and loyalty in order to avoid the French agent Chauvelin, who relentlessly hunts the Scarlet Pimpernel.
    First published in 1905, "The Scarlet Pimpernel" is the best-known novel by Baroness Emmuska Orczy, a prolific author of popular fiction and plays. The novel pioneered the tale of the masked avenger and paved the way for such future enigmatic swashbucklers as Zorro, Superman, and the Lone Ranger. Repeatedly adapted for stage and screen--most recently as a successful Broadway musical--"The Scarlet Pimpernel" is a relevant and enormously entertaining tale of survival and pluck during times of widespread fear, hypocrisy, and corruption.

    Includes 8 pieces of original art.Sarah Juliette Sasson is a lecturer in the Department of French and Romance Philology at Columbia University and is the managing editor of the "Romanic Review," a journal devoted to romance literatures. She holds a Ph.D. in Comparative Literature from Columbia. She specializes in nineteenth-century literature and particularly in the novel.

    Reviews - What do our customers think?
    This book is a great read for high school students  Aug 12, 2008
    The Scarlet Pimpernel is a wonderful book. It is set in 1792 in Europe during the French Reign of Terror. The idea that a man like the Scarlet Pimpernel could go to France to rescue aristocrats is very intriguing. He is cunning, smart, and witty. Although the book starts out dull, it increases in intensity as you get further into the book. The action and suspense towards the end of the book is thrilling. I would definitely recommend this book to high school students.
