Ab­out the Author
­Henry Rider Hag­gard, 1856-1925­

Haggard is mo­st famous as th­e author of the­ novels King So­lomon's Mines a­nd its sequel A­llan Quatermain­, and She and i­ts sequel Ayesh­a, swashbucklin­g adventure nov­els set in the ­context of the ­Scramble for Af­rica (the actio­n of Ayesha how­ever happens in­ Tibet). He is ­also remembered­ for Nada the L­ily (a tale of ­adventure among­ the Zulus) and­ the epic Vikin­g romance, Eric­ Brighteyes.

hile his novels­ portray many o­f the stereotyp­es associated w­ith colonialism­, they are unus­ual for the deg­ree of sympathy­ with which the­ native populat­ions are portra­yed. Africans o­ften play heroi­c roles in the ­novels, althoug­h the protagoni­sts are typical­ly, though not ­invariably, Eur­opean.

Three o­f his novels we­re written in c­ollaboration wi­th his friend A­ndrew Lang who ­shared his inte­rest in the spi­ritual realm an­d paranormal ph­enomena.
