Once he was André-Louis Moreau, a lawyer raised by nobility, unconcerned with the growing discontent among France’s lower class—until his best friend is 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 acting improvisers where he assumes the role of Scaramouche The Clown—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.

The tale of a man "who was born with the gift of laughter and a sense that the world was mad." Forced to go into hiding for his political activity, Andre-Louis Moreau joins a theater troupe and ends up in Paris during the Revolution where he must rescue the cousin he secretly loves.
