|Plot Summary of The Rose and the Ring|
Thackeray's 'the Rose and the Ring' is a short, eccentric, yet very enjoyable book about two objects: a rose, and a ring, which make the persons holding them suddenly extremely beautiful...so much so that the events thereafter become rather ridiculous.
The servant girl, Betsinda, loves Prince Giglio. Prince Giglio loves Princess Angelica, who has the ring, while Angelica loves Prince Bulbo, who has the rose . And Angelica's lady-in-waiting, the wicked Countess Gruffanuff, is determined to meddle in everyone's life.
