Abstract:

In the sweeping historical epic Guy Fawkes, renowned author William Harrison Ainsworth takes on one of the boldest rebels of all time. Pro-Catholic agitator Guy Fawkes was at the center of a failed scheme to blow up the English Parliament and force then-Princess Elizabeth onto the throne. Now regarded as an archetypal traitor, Fawkes looms large in the British imagination, due in large part to Ainsworth's complex and nuanced portrayal of him in this novel.
