'Quot homines tot sententiæ;' so many men, so many fancies. My fancy was for an island. Perhaps boyhood's glamour hung yet round sea-girt rocks, and 'faery lands forlorn,' still beckoned me; perhaps I felt that London was too full, the Highlands rather fuller, the Swiss mountains most insufferably crowded of them all.

Overview

'Quot homines tot sententiæ;' so many men, so many fancies. My fancy was for an island. Perhaps boyhood's glamour hung yet round sea-girt rocks, and 'faery lands forlorn,' still beckoned me; perhaps I felt that London was too full, the Highlands rather fuller, the Swiss mountains most insufferably crowded of them all. Money can buy company, and it can buy retirement. The latter service I asked now of the moderate wealth with which my poor cousin Tom's death had endowed me.

Meet the Author

Anthony Hope (in full Sir Anthony Hope Hawkins) was born in London and educated at Marlborough and at Balliol College, Oxford.

He became a lawyer, and dabbled in Liberal politics, but the immediate success of ‘The Prisoner of Zenda’, his fourth work, turned him entirely to writing. This work and its sequel, ‘Rupert of Hentzau’, both describe the perilous adventures of the Englishman Rudolph Rassendyll in the mythical kingdom of Ruritania.

Anthony Hope successfully published many other novels and plays. He was knighted in 1918 and died in 1933.
