Description

English gentleman Rudolf Rassendyll arrives in the country of Ruritania on the eve of King Rudolf the Fifth's coronation. That night, the king is abducted and held prisoner in a castle in the small town of Zenda. Rassendyll, who bears an uncanny resemblance to the monarch, is persuaded to impersonate him in order to stop his villainous half-brother, Prince Michael, from seizing the throne. Determined to rescue the king and restore him to his rightful place, Rassendyll attempts to free him, but can he defeat the dastardly Count Rupert of Hentzau who stands in his way? A swashbuckling adventure that never takes itself too seriously, Anthony Hope's The Prisoner of Zenda is packed with intrigue, backstabbing, bravery and romance. This beautiful Macmillan Collector's Library edition of The Prisoner of Zenda features an afterword by children's author, Philip Ardagh. Designed to appeal to the booklover, the Macmillan Collector's Library edition is a series of beautiful gift editions of much loved classic titles. Macmillan Collector's Library are books to love and treasure.

Author Biography

Sir Anthony Hope Hawkins was born in 1863 and, after taking a degree at Oxford University, was called to the bar in 1887. He initially combined a successful career as a barrister with writing but the immediate success of his tenth book, The Prisoner of Zenda (1894), allowed him to become a full-time writer. The novel spawned a new genre - Ruritanian romance - and has been adapted numerous times for film, television and stage. In all, Hope wrote thirty-two works of fiction and an autobiography. At the close of the First World War he was knighted for his contribution to propaganda work. Hope died in 1933.
