Content

  • A new edition of Haggard's classic adventure story, an exciting tale of exploration in the mythical African interior, where Allan Quatermain leads his intrepid companions in search of the fabled King Solomon's Mines
  • The first English adventure novel set in Africa, King Solomon's Mines also made popular the Lost World literary genre
  • Roger Luckhurst's introduction explores Haggard's experience of Africa, the romance genre, the context of British interventions in southern Africa and the Zulu Wars, and Haggard's ambivalent Imperial mindset
  • This edition includes 'The Real King Solomon's Mines', Haggard's later article about the book's reputation and the historical basis for his story.
  • Includes an up-to-date chronology, select bibliography, and informative notes

New to this Edition:

  • Introduction by Roger Luckhurst that takes account of the scholarship of the last 25 years, providing a more interesting edition for study. As well as being a popular adventure story, the novel is a fascinating window on to colonial attitudes and myth-making, and Luckhurst explores fully its troubled and ambivalent representation of Empire.
  • New Appendix, 'The Real King Solomon's Mines', Haggard's later article about the book's reputation and the historical basis for his story.
  • Revised Explanatory Notes.
  • Updated Select Bibliography.
