Rupert of Hentzau is the dark sequel to The Prisoner of Zenda. Full of humor and swashbuckling feats of heroism, the tale is also a satire on the politics of 19th-century Europe.
Hope (Sir Anthony Hope Hawkins) was born in London and became a lawyer a liberal politician, but the immediate success of The Prisoner of Zenda (1894), his fourth work, turned him entirely to writing. This work and its sequel, (1898), describe the perilous adventures of the Englishman Rudolf Rassendyll in the mythical kingdom of Ruritania. Adventure, intrigue and romance. Typical of the work Anthony Hope successfully published, knighted in 1918.
