  • "'Last Wednesday he had been engaged in moving an audience of Rennes to anger; on this Wednesday he was to move an audience of Guichen to mirth...' Once he was AndrE-Louis Moreau, a lawyer raised by nobility, unconcerned with the growing discontent among France's lower class'until his friend was mercilessly struck down by a member of the aristocracy. Now he is Scaramouche. Speaking out against the unjust French government, he takes refuge with a nomadic band of actors and assumes the role of the clown Scaramouche'a comic figure with a very serious message'. Set during the French Revolution, this novel of swashbuckling romance is also a thought-provoking commentary on class, inequality, and the individual's role in society'a story that has become Rafael Sabatini's enduring legacy. With an Introduction by Gary Hoppenstand."@en
  • ""Lawyer Andre-Louis Moreau, appalled by the death of his best friend at the hands of a member of the aristocracy, assumes the role of the clown Scaramouche with an acting troupe in pre-Revolutionary France and proceeds to speak out against the unjust French government.""@en
  • "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''.

  • "Le Dumas américain a emprunté ce personnage espagnol et l'a transposé en héros de la Révolution française en ce roman (1921) deux fois filmé."
  • "Scaramouche , by Rafael Sabatini , is part of the Barnes & Noble Classics series, which offers quality editions at affordable prices to the student and the general reader, including new scholarship, thoughtful design, and pages of carefully crafted extras. Raised by a supposed godfather, Andre'-Louis Moreau knows nothing about his background or his real parents not even his real name. All he knows is that he wants vengeance against the vicious, arrogant aristocrat who brutally murdered his best friend. As France plummets into revolution at the end of the eighteenth century, Moreau's journey toward revenge takes him through several careers, from lawyer to fugitive to actor and playwright and eventually to member of the French National Assembly. Hiding with a troupe of itinerant actors, he gleefully plays the traditional Commedia Dell-Arte role of Scaramouche, the trouble-making trickster who, like Shakespeare's fools and jesters, speaks painful truths disguised as harmless comedy. Rafael Sabatini was a twentieth-century Alexandre Dumas: a masterful creator of swashbuckling historical romances. Mixing real people with fictional characters and actual events with invented ones, Sabatini drew vivid, accurately detailed pictures of revolution-addled France. In Scaramouche, he turns a sweeping adventure epic into a subtle psychological study, as Moreau's odyssey gradually becomes less about revenge than about self-discovery. Includes 8 pieces of original art."

  • "When André-Louis Moreau enters the French Revolution to avenge his best friend's death, he goes underground and disguises himself as Scaramouche in a traveling group of actors."
