description

On his twenty-fifth birthday, Leo Vincey opens the silver casket that his father has left to him. It contains a letter recounting the legend of a white sorceress who rules an African tribe and his father''s quest to find this remote race. To find out for himself if the story is true, Leo and his companions set sail for Zanzibar. There, he is brought face to face with Ayesha, She-who-must-be-obeyed : dictator, femme fatale, tyrant and beauty. She has been waiting for centuries for the true descendant of Kallikrates, her murdered lover, to arrive, and arrive he does -- in an unexpected form. Blending breathtaking adventure with a brooding sense of mystery and menace, She is a story of romance, exploration, discovery and heroism that has lost none of its power to enthrall. Patrick Brantlinger''s introduction discusses H. Rider Haggard''s experience of Empire, and how he took the Africa of his fantasies and wove its magic into She. This edition also contains further reading and explanatory notes.
Daniel Karlin is a Lecturer in English at University College in London.
