Rich writing and swashbuckling plot Nov. 15 2006
By Matthew Schwarz - Published on
Format: Paperback
This is the first novel by Lord Dunsany (aka Edward JMD Plunkett), a turn of the 19th/20th century author who was a pioneer in what was to become the genre of "Fantasy". His writing is some of the richest, most beautiful English I've ever read and his novels are a treasure for that reason alone. He also has an insight and storytelling skill that rates his writing as "literature" - much more so than all but the best fantasy authors (such as Ursula LeGuin).

That being said, this novel is notable for being a little more "fun" than his high fantasy that follows - it has a lot of humor and derring-do in it and is somewhat reminiscent of Dumas's "Three Musketeers" in that element. I don't think I've ever laughed so hard while reading such excellent prose! The plot revolves around the adventures of a young Spanish gentleman, who not being the eldest son will not inherit his father's property must seek his own fortune.

I would highly recommend this to anyone who enjoys Dumas, Stevenson, "The Princess Bride", or Zorro!

Awesome dry wit, a great storyteller Dec 17 2013

Marvelous story of a charming, elegant nobleman and his clever servant who have very entertaining adventures together. Just as good as King of Elfland's Daughter, in a very different way. Read also, The Charwoman's ... Can't quite remember the title.
A boring story about a bland Nov. 22 2014

This didn't have the magic of his other books I've read, and I found it lacking.

A boring story about a bland, entitled young man.

I think there were more words spent describing bacon than all the female characters together.
