My empire is of the imagination, proclaims white queen Ayesha, She-who-must-be-obeyed. She is a spiritual romance in which Haggard explores not only the imagined city of Kôr, last remnant of an ancient, collapsed civilization, but his own concerns about science, society, and empire. To the twenty-first-century reader, She offers more than an entertaining tale of adventure, though it is that; it offers an exploration of the nineteenth-century imperial imagination.

Meet the Author



Henry Rider Haggard, born in 1856 and raised in West Norfolk, moved to South Africa in 1875, where he became a private secretary to the Lieutenant Governor of Natal and later an ostrich farmer. He enjoyed the independence and adventure colonial service offered a young man and wrote frequent articles describing Africa for a variety of magazines. After the rebellion of the Dutch Boers against British rule in Transvaal, Haggard moved back to London, where he began writing about South Africa and lost civilizations.

    WONDERFUL BOOK!

    Holly and Leo travel to Africa to unravel a mystery about Leo's line of ancestry. There they encounter an ancient goddess who believes Leo is someone from the past.

    Haggard was excellent at writing adventure novels and this is no exception. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED! (There are 4 books to the She series and all should be read!)

    The story of She by H. Rider Haggard is an excellent adventure story. Yet it is much more, this tale influenced both Tolkien and C. S. Lewis in their fantasy tales. Also it profoundly affected Sigmund Freud. The book gives a glimpse into the mind of colonial England through the genre of adventure fantasy. I find the four novels that contain the character Ayesha and her ill fated love of Kallikrates (Holly) a fascinating read.

    For its time.......

    Quite an imagination to tell a tale which could have happened, couldn't it? Good story telling for its day.
