Book Summary: A thrill-a minute ride set in the days of Spanish colonialism in California, where thugs and greedy tyrants try to wrest every penny from peasants . . . and the one hero who defends the common man is the mysterious masked stranger who calls himself Zorro--The Fox! The first Zorro story appeared as a 5-part serial in All-Story Weekly, a famous American pulp fiction magazine, starting in the August 9, 1919 issue. In a case of fortunate timing, Douglas Fairbanks, the silent movie star, was in the process of trying to change his image at the time, and he chose Zorro as his next starring role. In 1920, when the romantic swashbuckler debuted, it set movie box office records. Riot police had to disperse the huge crowds that showed up at the New York opening. Zorro entered the public consciousness and is now a part of popular culture, the same as such heroes as Superman, Tarzan, and The Lone Ranger. The rest is history.

Book Summary: Long before Superman or Batman made their first appearances, there was Zorro. Born on the pages of the pulps in 1919, Zorro fenced his way through the American popular imagination, carving his signature letter Z into the flesh of evildoers in Old Spanish California. Zorro is the original caped crusader, the first hero to have a band called the Avengers, and the character who laid the blueprint for the modern American superhero: the mask, the alter-ego, extraordinary physical skills, and a struggle against arch-villains. Famed comics pioneer Bob Kane even wrote that &“Zorro was a major influence on my creation of Batman.&” In Zorro's Shadow, historian and Latin American studies expert Stephen J. C. Andes investigates the legends behind the mask of Zorro, revealing that the origin of America's first superhero lies in Latinx history and experience. Andes begins his investigation in Mexico City at a statue of William Lamport, the so-called &“Irish Zorro,&” who was burned at the stake by the Mexican Inquisition. There, he discovers new documents at the Mexican National Archives and travels to the Sonoran desert to find the birthplace of Joaqu&ín Murrieta, a California Gold Rush bandit who many claim inspired the creation of Zorro. Based on the never-before-seen letters of Zorro creator Johnston McCulley, Andes describes how the legends around Lamport and Murrieta influenced the development of the masked hero in black, and further, how Zorro went from a real life Mexican bandido to a distinctly white, aristocratic hero. Revealing the length of Zorro's shadow on the superhero genre is a reclamation of the legend of Zorro for a multiethnic and multicultural America.

Book Summary: Zorro behind the mask is a daring defender of freedom and justice, wielding sword and whip with unparalleled skill in defense of the common people's cause. Zorro without the mask is Don Alejandro de la Vega, wealthy landowner and as much of a family man as his charge will allow. As California stands on the brink of statehood, Alejandro is not sure who he will be when the need for the mask fades, but his lovely wife, Elena, is certain he will be the devoted husband and father she and their son, Joaquin, have patiently waited for. But ruthless men in a deadly conspiracy of power have different ideas. As they threaten the future of a still-young nation, they also set Alejandro's two lives in collision, drawing his beloved Elena into a perilous world of shadows and lies. Could the mask ultimately cost the one they call Zorro everything and everyone he holds most dear? Or will the Zorro legacy and de la Vega family prevail?

Book Summary: Sandwiched between the ocean and the mountains surrounding the Pueblo de Los Angeles, wealthy Spanish caballeros live side by side with Native Americans. One boy with both Spanish and Indian blood belongs to both worlds. He is Diego de la Vega, who will one day wear the mask of Zorro. As a boy Diego is more concerned with riding horses and making mischief with his best friend, Bernardo, than about fighting injustice. But when men start disappearing from the pueblo of Los Angeles and cattle are missing from Diego's father's rancho, Diego and Bernardo encounter an injustice so wicked that they must take action. Inspired by Isabel Allende's novel Zorro, which reveals how Diego de la Vega became the legendary masked hero, Young Zorro: The Iron Brand introduces readers to a land of vaqueros and kidnappers -- an exciting world in which a young hero is formed. First introduced in 1919, the legend of Zorro, "the fox," swiftly grew into a phenomenon. A hero of Spanish California with a dual identity, Zorro has vanquished evildoers and conquered hearts in books, movies, and television series around the world. Most recently the Zorro tale has been brought to life by Antonio Banderas and Catherine Zeta-Jones in the 1998 major motion picture The Mask of Zorro and its 2005 sequel, The Legend of Zorro.

Book Summary: Qui n’a pas, un jour au moins, été fasciné par le superbe cavalier noir se dressant sur son cheval éblouissant, dans un ciel nocturne zébré d’éclairs : Zorro ! Qui n’a pas en mémoire la musique du générique et qui oserait assimiler un « Z », tracé sur un mur ou fendant l'étoffe, à autre chose que la signature de Zorro ? Qu'est-ce qui séduit donc tant dans ce personnage ? Sa pure beauté ? Sa grandeur morale ? Son sens de la justice ? Et si, sous le masque, se donnait à voir quelque chose de plus grand, de plus mystérieux... Un initié peut-être ? Dans le "Zorro" mis en scène par Walt Disney, tout est symbole : le cheval, l’épée, l’éclair, les personnages (comme autant de facettes de la personnalité humaine) et jusqu’à l’hacienda qui se fait lien entre ciel et terre. Les inconditionnels du fier justicier trouveront ici mille détails précieux pour faire revivre l’univers de leur héros. Mais, au-delà, dérouler le thème de l’initiation et décrypter le langage symbolique, qui ouvre les portes d’un autre monde, sont les messages premiers de cet ouvrage. Et ils sont délicieusement servis par ce justicier mythique au charme inaltérable. Z...
