The Prisoner of Zenda and Rupert of Hentzau (Wordsworth Classics)

Anthony Hope

With a brand new creation through Cedric Watts,
Research Professor of English, collage of Sussex.

In The Prisoner of Zenda, Rudolf Rassendyll’s shut resemblance to the King of Ruritania leads him into intrigue, romance and threatening escapades. Enmeshed in a plot via the villainous Duke of Strelsau to depose the King, Rudolf is entranced through the attractive Princess Flavia, and reveals that either his lifestyles and his honour are imperilled.

The sequel, Rupert of Hentzau, tells how Rupert (‘who feared neither guy nor devil’) seeks to wreck Flavia’s recognition and wreak vengeance on Rudolf. occasions speed up to a dramatically violent climax.  either those swashbuckling novels provide the charm of romantic event in a land now mythical. a number of diversifications on monitor and degree have prolonged the celebrity of Anthony Hope’s Ruritania.
