Overview

A romantic tale of a young aristocrat's adventures during the French Revolution. At one point the hero joins a theater troupe to portray ''Scaramouche''. He also becomes a lawyer, a politician, and a lover, confounding his enemies with his elegant oration and precise swordsmanship. An excellent swashbuckler! Similar to Sabatini's other bestseller, Captain Blood, there is a person content with his life, even introverted, that gets ripped out of perfect circumstances and thrown into boiling life where he must completely change and be leader, all the time staying true to himself. Additionally, this excellently written and gripping novel serves as history lesson about The Revolution, better than any dry history book.
