Hope, Anthony: Quisanté. V1. 24 June 2010

Sir Anthony Hope Hawkins, better known as Anthony Hope (9 February 1863 – 8 July 1933), 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,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.

Sandro Quisante has stirred comment among the gentile and proper -- for while he seems a bit ill-mannered and erratic, and certainly not wealthy of appearance, he has gained his toehold in the hallways of the mighty through the aid of Sir Richard Benyon -- for reasons inexplicable even to Lady Richard. And now he has gone wooing a woman decidedly above his standing, to her disgust.

As it happens, it is her friend May who receives the tentative, even clumsy attentions from the slender young man. The widowed Lady Attlebridge's slenderly dowered daughter, May does have a much more qualified suitor, Weston Marchmont -- who everyone thinks would be a superb match, being well above the ordinary run, well-educated and possessed with ample wealth and every prospect of a high career.

Yet a feeling stirs within May -- something almost like a sense of adventure unfulfilled by her everyday life -- that makes her not quite turn away when Quisante comes to call.
