Description

Anthony Hope (best known for The Prisoner of Zenda) published The Indiscretion Of The Duchess (subtitled "Being a Story Concerning Two Ladies, a Nobleman, and a Necklace") in 1894. This novel is written in the style of one of Hope's previous books, The Dolly Dialogues, forerunner of a whole school of drawing-room comedy. The narrator, Gilbert Aycon, begins his tale: "In accordance with many most excellent precedents, I might begin by claiming the sympathy due to an orphan alone in the world. I might even summon my unguided childhood and the absence of parental training to excuse my faults and extenuate my indiscretions ..."

Author Biography

Sir Anthony Hope Hawkins, better known as Anthony Hope (1863 - 1933), was an English novelist and playwright. He was a prolific writer, especially of adventure novels but he is remembered predominantly for only two books: The Prisoner of Zenda (1894) and its sequel Rupert of Hentzau (1898). These works, "minor classics" of English literature, are set in the contemporaneous fictional country of Ruritania and spawned the genre known as Ruritanian romance, works set in fictional European locales similar to the novels. Zenda has inspired many adaptations, most notably the 1937 Hollywood movie of the same name.
