A subconscious boiling with odd demons

Haggard's 1886 adventure tale of immortality, empire, love, and gender reveals a subconscious boiling with odd demons. The purple prose, racism, and misogyny (Haggard's term, truer than he knows) make it tough going as a straight-up adventure tale, but it surely is in interesting study (as quoted from Freud on the front cover) "full of hidden meaning."
