The Scarlet Pimpernel from the Author: Baroness Emmuska Orczy. At the beginning of the French Revolution, a group of Englishmen form a secret society to rescue French aristocrats from the guillotine. Their mysterious leader is the elusive Scarlet Pimpernel. London society relishes stories of his heroic deeds and hotly debates the question of his identity. Meanwhile, the new French envoy to England, Citizen Chauvelin, will stop at nothing to catch him. Then Marguerite St. Just, the beautiful French wife of English aristocrat Sir Percy Blakeney, makes a startling discovery about the Scarlet Pimpernel's true identity. Marguerite must decide where her loyalties lie—with her beloved brother in France, or with the dashing Pimpernel. Can she save them both? This is an unabridged version of the historical swashbuckling adventure by Hungarian-born British author Baroness Emmuska Orczy, and was first published in 1905.

Baroness Orczy S The Scarlet Pimpernel from the Author: Sally Dugan. Since its publication in 1905, The Scarlet Pimpernel has experienced global success, not only as a novel but in theatrical and film adaptations. Sally Dugan charts the history of Baroness Orczy's elusive hero, from the novel's origins through its continuing afterlife, including postmodern appropriations of the myth. Drawing on archival research in Britain, the United States and Australia, her study shows for the first time how Orczy's nationalistic superhero was originally conceived as an anarchist Pole plotting against Tsarist Russia, rather than a counter-revolutionary Englishman. Dugan explores the unique blend of anarchy, myth and magic that emerged from the story's astonishing and complex beginnings and analyses the enduring elements of the legend. To his creator, the Pimpernel was not simply a swashbuckling hero but an English gentleman spreading English values among benighted savages. Dugan investigates the mystery of why this imperialist crusader has not only survived the decline of the meta-narratives surrounding his birth, but also continues to enthrall a multinational audience. Offering readers insights into the Pimpernel's appearances in print, in film and on the stage, Dugan provides a nuanced picture of the trope of the Scarlet Pimpernel and an explanation of the phenomenon's durability.
