  • Rafael Sabatini (1875 - 1950) was an Italian/British writer of novels of romance and adventure. At a young age, Rafael was exposed to many languages. By the time he was seventeen, he was the master of five languages. He quickly added a sixth language - English - to his linguistic collection. After a brief stint in the business world, Sabatini went to work as a writer. He wrote short stories in the 1890s, and his first novel came out in 1902. Sabatini was a prolific writer; he produced a new book approximately every year. He consciously chose to write in his adopted language, because, he said, "all the best stories are written in English." In all, he produced thirty one novels, eight short story collections, six nonfiction books, numerous uncollected short stories, and a play. He is best known for his world-wide bestsellers: The Sea Hawk (1915), Scaramouche (1921), Captain Blood (1922) and Bellarion the Fortunate (1926). Other famous works by Sabatini are The Lion's Skin (1911), The Strolling Saint (1913) and The Snare (1917).

  • Scaramouche PLUS Bardelys the Magnificent by Rafael Sabatini For the first time, these two great classics together for the price of 1! Rafael Sabatini was a prolific Italian writer who wrote his novels of romance and high adventure in English. Several of these very successful novels were made into notable films. Scaramouche: A Romance of the French Revolution Set during the French Revolution, this classic novel of swashbuckling adventure and sweeping romance is also a thought-provoking commentary on class, inequality, and the individual's role in society. Scaramouche, the unforgettable clown, is a comic figure with a very serious message. Scaramouche is a story that has become Rafael Sabatini's enduring legacy. In the words of one reader: "Scaramouche is a tale of revenge, an astonishing tour de force - every single page seethes with incident, color, and detail." Bardelys the Magnificent An absorbing story of love and adventure in France of the early seventeenth century. Bardelys the Magnificent is the tale of Sieur Marcel de Saint-Pol; Marquis of Bardelys, and those things which befell him in Languedoc, in the year of the Rebellion. One of the most stirring tales Sabatini ever wrote.

  • He was born with a gift of laughter and a sense that the world was mad. And that was all his patrimony. His very paternity was obscure, although the village of Gavrillac had long since dispelled the cloud of mystery that hung about it. Those simple Brittany folk were not so simple as to be deceived by a pretended relationship which did not even possess the virtue of originality. When a nobleman, for no apparent reason, announces himself the godfather of an infant fetched no man knew whence, and thereafter cares for the lad's rearing and education, the most unsophisticated of country folk perfectly understand the situation. And so the good people of Gavrillac permitted themselves no illusions on the score of the real relationship between Andre-Louis Moreau—as the lad had been named—and Quintin de Kercadiou, Lord of Gavrillac, who dwelt in the big grey house that dominated from its eminence the village clustering below. Andre-Louis had learnt his letters at the village school, lodged the while with old Rabouillet, the attorney, who in the capacity of fiscal intendant, looked after the affairs of M. de Kercadiou. Thereafter, at the age of fifteen, he had been packed off to Paris, to the Lycee of Louis Le Grand, to study the law which he was now returned to practise in conjunction with Rabouillet. All this at the charges of his godfather, M. de Kercadiou, who by placing him once more under the tutelage of Rabouillet would seem thereby quite clearly to be making provision for his future. Andre-Louis, on his side, had made the most of his opportunities. You behold him at the age of four-and-twenty stuffed with learning enough to produce an intellectual indigestion in an ordinary mind. Out of his zestful study of Man, from Thucydides to the Encyclopaedists, from Seneca to Rousseau, he had confirmed into an unassailable conviction his earliest conscious impressions of the general insanity of his own species. Nor can I discover that anything in his eventful life ever afterwards caused him to waver in that opinion.

  • The strangely pale-faced child of a gypsy whore, Scaramouche was always fated to be a clown. But from his birth, at midnight on New Year's Eve 1899 in a dingy Trinidad knocking shop, his life has been a vivid odyssey through extraordinary adventures, crumbling empires and the darkest episodes of the 20th century. Now, as the champagne corks fly on millennium eve, Scaramouche is about to give his last and most important performance. He steps out from the circus ring, peels away his outer disguises and reveals the loves, brutalities, ecstasies and tragedies that created the seven white masks of Scaramouche Jones.

  • Scaramouche is an historical novel by Rafael Sabatini, originally published in 1921. A romantic adventure, Scaramouche tells the story of a young lawyer during the French Revolution. In the course of his adventures he becomes an actor portraying "Scaramouche" (a roguish buffoon character in the commedia dell'arte). He also becomes a revolutionary, politician, and fencing- master, confounding his enemies with his powerful orations and swordsmanship. He is forced by circumstances to change sides several times. The book also depicts his transformation from cynic to idealist. The three-part novel opens with the memorable line: "He was born with a gift of laughter and a sense that the world was mad."

  • Scaramouche or Scaramouch (from Italian scaramuccia, literally little skirmisher) is a stock clown character of the 16th century commedia dell'arte (comic theatrical arts of Italian literature). The role combined characteristics of the Zanni (servant) and the Capitano (masked henchman), with some assortment of villainous traits. Usually attired in black Spanish dress and burlesquing a Don, he was often beaten by Harlequin for his boasting and cowardice.

  • Genre : Books
  • SCARAMOUCHE is the second exciting collection of short stories by this talented author and it's just as entertaining and beguiling as its predecessor. The stories are a kaleidoscope of genres - from humour, medieval history and fantasy to contemporary dilemmas, romance and fate - with a wide-ranging cast of characters and action-packed plotlines that will have you laughing out loud, reaching for the tissues and pausing for reflection. 'Next of Kin' is the story depicting every parent's worst nightmare. In this case it's Paul Bagot's worst nightmare. That phone call... that rush to A & E... that unreadable doctor's expression. What's happened at the riding stables to little 8 year old Jenny? From modern day life and death situations, to medieval history and all its trappings - 'Scaramouche' is a tale of the Colonel of the King's Dragoon Guards. Filled with treachery, bandits, death, traitors and assassins, this is not a story for the faint-hearted. Brave Scaramouche has survived so many battles but the final news he has to deliver may be his most difficult test of all. 'The Mexican Trap' propels you into a lively sun-drenched Mexican market day filled with hustle and bustle. However, the scene quickly escalates into something much more sinister. Has Englishman, Paul Rogers (who has gone to Mexico for a bet), been mistaken for an international jewel thief? Bursting with exploits and escapades, this thrilling story will keep you rooting for the unlikely hero until the very end. And this is just a sample of the high quality and broad range of the stories in this collection.

  • Genre : Fiction
  • Scaramouche is not only Rafael Sabatinis crowning literary achievement, it is one of the most engaging, thought-provoking and exciting historical novels ever written. Andre-Louis Moreau, (or Scaramouche, as he later becomes known), is a fascinatingly complex protagonist. Courageous, intelligent, quick-witted and intensely moral, Moreau is a character whose personal quest for revenge against the villainous Marquis de La Tour dAzyr is a masterfully-woven story of swashbuckling action, romance and social conflict during the turbulent years of the French Revolution. Well-born lawyer. Fugitive. Dramatic actor. Expert swordsman. Impassioned, mob-inciting orator. Revolutionary politician. Sabatini sets Moreau upon an intriguing path of fate, development and discovery, a fictionalized yet compelling account of a single mans ultimate test of human character as the world around him spirals into madness. Sabatini has often been compared to Alexandre Dumas (author of the Three Musketeers, the Count of Monte Cristo) as a master of historical fiction. Though I believe Dumas to be the finest action-adventure writer of all time, and though some of Sabatinis other works (which I have not yet read) have been criticized as overly melodramatic, Sabatini has created in Scaramouche an historical action-adventure novel that transcends Dumas (and all modern action-adventure writers, for that matter) in that Moreau, his protagonist, is a thoroughly multi-dimensional character. Though Moreau is driven by his hatred and his quest for revenge, the spirit of his character is not defined by them, and the conflict of these passions with his ideals brings depth and substance to his exploits on the Theatre Feydau, the fencing halls of Paris, the floor of the National Assembly and his pursuit of the beautiful Aline de Kercadiou. Duels. Intrigue. Romance. More duels. Moral and political introspection. Its all here. Enjoy!
