Book Description

"Tulipunainen neilikka," translated as "The Scarlet Pimpernel" in English, is a historical novel by Baroness Emmuska Orczy, first published in 1905. The story is set against the backdrop of the French Revolution, during the Reign of Terror. The elusive and daring Scarlet Pimpernel is the alter ego of Sir Percy Blakeney, a wealthy Englishman. As the French Revolution's guillotine claims the lives of countless aristocrats, the Scarlet Pimpernel orchestrates daring rescue missions to save the condemned from the clutches of the revolutionary authorities. His symbol, a small red flower called the scarlet pimpernel, becomes synonymous with hope for the oppressed. The narrative unfolds with suspenseful escapades and clever disguises as Sir Percy navigates the dangerous political landscape. While his wife, Marguerite, remains unaware of his secret identity, she becomes entangled in a web of political intrigue. "Tulipunainen neilikka" is celebrated for its swashbuckling adventure, romance, and the theme of heroism in the face of political turmoil. Orczy's work has left an indelible mark on literature, and the Scarlet Pimpernel remains an iconic character in the realm of historical fiction.
