Written in just five weeks in , Baroness Emma Orczy's bestseller has been the basis of multiple adaptations.
- 9780199536351 - The Secret Agent: A Simple Tale (Oxford World's Classics) by Joseph Conrad.
- Travel Advice (How to...).
- FORBIDDEN MANDATE.
- Sixteenth Summer: The Sarah Bowers Series?
Rooted in the upheaval of Orczy's Hungarian childhood, and in the anxious nationalism of turn-of-the-century Britain, the story of the Scarlet Pimpernel provided a blueprint not only for subsequent historical swashbucklers, but for superheroes from Zorro to Superman. This edition places The Scarlet Pimpernel within the context of the elite and popular literature of the turn of the century.
Orczy's novel is close in kin to such contemporary political thrillers as Joseph Conrad's The Secret Agent ; tales that channeled contemporary concerns about refugees and enemies within.
