The Fifth of November
The gunpowder treason and plot
I know of no reason why the gunpowder treason
Should ever be forgot
Set against the futuristic landscape of totalitarian Britain, V For Vendetta
tells the story of a young working-class woman named Evey who is rescued from a
life-and-death situation by a masked man known only as “V.”
Profoundly complex, V is at once literary, flamboyant, tender and intellectual,
a man dedicated to freeing his fellow citizens from those who have terrorized
them into compliance. He is also bitter, revenge-seeking, lonely and violent,
driven by a personal vendetta.
In his quest to free the people of England from the corruption and cruelty that
have poisoned their government, V condemns the tyrannical nature of their
appointed leaders and invites his fellow citizens to join him in the shadows of
Parliament on November the 5th -- Guy Fawkes Day.
On that day in 1605, Guy Fawkes was discovered in a tunnel beneath Parliament
with 36 barrels of gunpowder. He and his co-conspirators had engineered the
treasonous “Gunpowder Plot” in response to the tyranny of their government under
James I. Fawkes and his fellow saboteurs were hanged, drawn and quartered, and
their plan to take down their government never came to pass.
In the spirit of that rebellion, in remembrance of that day, V vows to carry out
the plot that Fawkes was executed for attempting on November 5th in 1605: he
will blow up Parliament.
As Evey uncovers the truth about V’s mysterious past, she also discovers the
truth about herself -- and emerges as his unlikely ally in the culmination of
his plan to ignite a revolution, bringing freedom and justice back to a society
fraught with cruelty and corruption.
