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.
