"Parting is all we know of heaven, and all we need of hell."
If you want to avoid the hell part of Dickinson's conundrum, I humbly suggest an exploration of the following sites, which provide a more...comprehensive...look at The Scarlet Pimpernel.
Official Scarlet Pimpernel website:
The official site for the musical, which includes a tour schedule, a fan section, journal entries from various cast/crew members, and more.
One of the most comprehensive Pimpernel sites on the web, Sir Percy's Place has everything--including the Scarlet Pimpernel Reading Group! The lovely webmistress was kind enough to donate some of the images you see on my pages. If you want to know more (and if you don't, then why are you here?), go look for yourself!
Katherine's Sitting Room:
Kati's site ranks with the most fun of the pages I've encountered. It's official, even! Go browse through her Pimpernel fanfiction/poetry/essays. (Yes, essays!) Drool over the stories of her adventures. Check out the Sherlock Holmes section. When you're done with all that, read the guestbook, just for kicks.
Hastings' Front Hall:
Home of the Violet Guild, a group of adventuresome souls dedicated to aiding the League of the Scarlet Pimpernel--secretly, of course. It would never do to let the boys know they can't do everything on their own! With a premise like that, naturally this page is near to my heart.
Seek Him Here.....:
So, you can finish the doggerel on your own, right? Margot has compiled a stunning collection of fanfiction for your perusal--so go peruse! This was the first place I stumbled upon when "researching" (read: finding fun things to read about) The Scarlet Pimpernel on the net.
I am frightfully jealous of Kel. She has seen The Scarlet Pimpernel on stage about a million times. She has chatted with the cast members. She is a brilliant writer. So go, explore all the Pimpernel stuff she's compiled, and turn as green as I am!
Me A Sonnet, Laugh Me A Lullaby:
Now just look at that title! Aren't you enchanted already? This page contains musings, stories, and more on a number of differnet genres. The Scarlet Pimpernel, The Phantom of the Opera, Star Wars...the webmistress has good taste!
Hey, the banner says it! Blakeney Manor purports to be the almost-official web site of the Scarlet Pimpernel, and it's not hard to see why. Among other things, find resources for studying the French Revolution, and (drumroll, please) The Scarlet Pimpernel E-text Library (novels! Go read the novels)!
