She is Ayesha, the mysterious white queen of a Central African Tribe-and the goal of three English gentlemen, who must face shipwreck, fever, and cannibals in their quest to find her hidden realm. First published in 1887, She has enthralled the imaginations of many-from Freud, who prescribed the book to one of his patients, to the generations of readers, who remain fascinated by the book's revealing and fantastic representations of dangerous women, adventuring men, and unexplored Africa. Available for the first time from Penguin Classics, this edition of one of the most famous works of popular literature includes a critical introduction, suggestions for further reading, and explanatory notes. Edited by Patrick Brantlinger.
