Spain, 1906. The Duke de Richleau has not yet succeeded his father, and is still the Count de Quesnoy. Anarchism permeates every country in Europe, and not a night passes without groups of fanatics meeting in cellars to plan attempts with knives, pistols or bombs against the representatives of law and order. A bomb outrage gives de Quesnoy ample cause to vow vengeance on the assassins. His attempt to penetrate anarchist circles in Barcelona nearly costs him his life. In San Sebastian, Granada and Cadiz he hunts and is hunted by them in a ruthless vendetta. A rich novel packed with true history, subtle intrigue, sudden violence, terrorism, blackmail and suspense, alongside the bitter-sweet romance between gallant young de Quesnoy and the beautiful Condesa Gulia.

In spite of our clever and urban modern logic, our sharp common sense of destruction and reaction versus the more gratifying construction and proactive action, we still weave talionic plots that go beyond staged tragedies and past eras. Revenge continues to be popular in fiction as in non-fictional realms. As an audience, we enjoy films and books that hail the ‘getting even’ philosophy; even our most renowned children’s stories are seeded in vindication and retribution (Hansel and Gretel, Red Riding Hood, and Snow White, just to name a few), as our television programs, targeted to a more mature audience, are intended to be (see Charmed and Scrubs, as just two successful examples). This volume provides a riveting account of the role of revenge as muse to many characters of modern literature from various national origins and of modern societies with their own embedded cultural reactions as well as a diversity of approaches to wishes of violent counterattacks. Through a plurality of literary subjects and perspectives, this publication provides an overview much needed in our libraries and bookstores. Departing from the psychological complexities in Ovid’s Metamorphoses, the contributors of this volume focus on chivalric avenges, models for violence management, and reinterpretations of the code of honor through the analysis of Hispanic, Italian, and French texts; emphasize the patient craftiness and adroit deceit of which women are capable, outmaneuvering men and their cold manipulations; provide documented incidents involving more than fictitious personages as in the case of an Italian portraitist active between the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries. This volume is a unique collection of topics, with a useful and practical approach to an abrasive phenomenon that remains relevant in our modern times.

The 2005 James McTeigue and Wachowski Brothers film V for Vendetta represents a postmodern pastiche, a collection of fragments pasted together from the original Moore and Lloyd graphic novel of the same name, along with numerous allusions to literature, history, cinema, music, art, politics, and medicine. Paralleling the graphic novel, the film simultaneously reflects a range of authorial contributions and influences. This work examines in detail the intersecting texts of V for Vendetta. Subjects include the alternative dimensions of the cinematic narrative, represented in the film's conspicuous placement of the painting The Lady of Shalott in V's home; the film's overt allusions to the AIDS panic of the 1980s; and the ways in which antecedent narratives such as Terry Gilliam's Brazil, Huxley's Brave New World, and Bradbury's Fahrenheit 451 represent shadow texts frequently crossing through the overall V for Vendetta narrative.

REMEMBER, REMEMBER THE FIFTH OF NOVEMBER Imagine a Britain stripped of democracy: a world of the not-too-distant future, in which freedom was not lost, but surrendered willingly to a totalitarian regime that rose to power by exploiting the people's worst fears and most damning weaknesses. This is the setting for the parable of Evey, a young woman who is saved from death by a masked man calling himself only V. Beguiling and dangerous, V ignites the fuse of revolution when he urges his fellow citizens to wake up and shed the blanket of tyranny and oppression in which they have permitted themselves to be cloaked. While those in power take steps to neutralize the threat, the police pursue the mystery of V, unaware of the terrible truth that awaits them at the end of the trail. It is Evey, however, who, with V as her enigmatic guide, sets out on the most painful path of all: a journey of deception and self-discovery, deconstruction and re-creation, vindication and vengeance.

When the partially clothed body of a young woman is found bludgeoned to death on a swanky Houston golf course, the overwhelming evidence points to her husband, Houston attorney Boone Fitzgerald. One of the few who believe Boone to be innocent is neophyte lawyer Joanna Martinez, step-sister of Leroy Hunt, the assailant. But Leroy is not satisfied with only murdering Boone’s wife. He wants more. He wants Boone decapitated. But when Joanna Martinez—who Leroy has not seen since they were long ago shuffled off to different foster homes—gets in his way, he’s after her head too. And Leroy Hunt will stop at nothing to achieve his goal. . . .But why?
