About this title


Hope was a British novelist and playwright in the early 20th century. His best-known work was The Prisoner of Zenda. Four years later he wrote the sequel Rupert of Hentzau, which was set in the fictional kingdom of Ruritania. A letter from the unhappy Queen is stolen and this gives Rudolf a chance to return a favor by informing the jealous King. Rudolf returns to help the Queen and is again forced to play the part of the king. Deceptions and murders follow in this action packed fantasy.

About the Author:

Anthony Hope (Sir Anthony Hope Hawkins) was born in London and educated at Marlborough and at Balliol College, Oxford. He became a lawyer in 1887, and dabbled in Liberal politics, but the immediate success of The Prisoner of Zenda (1894), his fourth work, turned him entirely to writing. This work and its sequel, Rupert of Hentzau (1898), describe the perilous adventures of the Englishman Rudolf Rassendyll in the mythical kingdom of Ruritania. The adventure, intrigue and romance of these novels are typical of the literature popular before World War I. Anthony Hope successfully published many other novels and plays. He was knighted in 1918 for his services in the British Ministry of Information during World War I. He died in 1933.
