Overview

Simon Dale by Anthony Hope

England, 1647: a wise woman has predicted the birth of Simon Dale, to the very day and district. But if the rest of her ominous forecast is accurate, how can this ordinary child be predestined to love where the King loved, know what the King hid, and drink of the King’s cup? For the young man, Simon Dale, only one course of action can be taken: not to seek his own path, but to leave himself in the hands of Fate. This brilliant novel charts an absorbing period in history and the tumultuous life of an ordinary man in noble surrounds.

About 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.
