About the Author: Anthony Hope

Sir Anthony Hope Hawkins, better known as Anthony Hope was an English novelist and playwright. Although he was a prolific writer, especially of adventure novels, he is remembered best for only two books: The Prisoner of Zenda (1894) and its sequel Rupert of Hentzau (1898). These works, "minor classics" of English literature,[2] are set in the contemporaneous fictional country of Ruritania and spawned the genre known as Ruritanian romance. Zenda has inspired many adaptations, most notably the 1937 Hollywood movie of the same name.

Two young men, one of French birth, the other of English, with more time than discretion and in search of amusement travel from London to Normandy to visit "the Duchess" in the absence of her jealous husband. This is the beginning of a series of misadventures and mishaps, which are often amusing and at times tragical. The duke returns unexpectedly, bringing with him an English singer and her mother; he presents his wife's diamonds to the singer, and the duchess leaves his roof. The diamonds are stolen and found again - and affairs generally come to a satisfactory conclusion.
--The Annual American Catalogue (1894)
