Sabatini, Rafael: Scaramouche - A Romance of the French Revolution - 12/15/09

Sabatini, Rafael - Scaramouche -- A Romance of the French Revolution (1921)

Scaramouche is a historical novel by Rafael Sabatini, originally published in 1921.

It is a romantic adventure and tells the story of a young lawyer during the French Revolution. In the course of his adventures he becomes an actor portraying "Scaramouche" (also called Scaramuccia, 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 later film version includes one of the longest, and many believe, best swashbuckling sword-fighting scenes ever filmed.

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." This line was to become Sabatini's epitaph, on his gravestone in Adelboden, Switzerland.

Thanks!

Thanks for Scaramouche! One of the most enjoyable reads for me in a long time. I was going to give you Karma, too, but I didn't want to mess up your perfect 300000....
