The Sea Hawk is another pirate adventure novel penned by Rafael Sabatini, author of Captain Blood. It was originally published in 1915 and is set in the late 16th century.
Sir Oliver Tressilian, a typical English sea-faring gentleman, is villainously betrayed by his jealous half-brother and is accused of murder. Sir Oliver is kidnapped off the Cornish coast, and forced to serve as a slave on a Spanish galley.
Eventually Sir Oliver is freed by Barbary pirates. He joins the pirates, gaining the name “Sakr-el-Bahr”, the hawk of the sea, and swears vengeance against his half-brother.
This story is filled with adventure, religious conflict, melodrama, romance and intrigue, and is perhaps best known for its many film adaptations.
