Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A runaway bestseller on its publication in 1887, H. Rider Haggards She is a Victorian thrill ride of a novel, featuring a lost African kingdom ruled by a mysterious, implacable queen; ferocious wildlife and yawning abysses; and an eerie love story that spans two thousand years. She has bewitched readers from Freud and Jung to C. S. Lewis and J.R.R. Tolkien; in her Introduction to this Modern Library Paperback Classic—which includes period illustrations by Maurice Greiffenhagen and Charles H. M. Kerr—Margaret Atwood asserts that the awe-inspiring Ayesha, “She-who-must-be-obeyed,” is “a permanent feature of the human imagination.”

Synopsis:

She is a Victorian thrill ride that has captured the imaginations of readers from Graham Greene to J.R.R. Tolkien. In a mysterious African kingdom, the ageless Ayesha (She-Who-Must-Be-Obeyed) is reunited with the reincarnation of her long-lost lover, Kallikrates, and the result is one of the great adventure novels of all time. This edition reproduces many of the classic illustrations by Maurice Greiffenhagen and Charles H. M. Kerr and includes newly commissioned endnotes.
