  • Texte intégral révisé suivi d'une biographie de Henry Rider Haggard. She, Ayesha, "Celle qui doit être obéie", citée par Carl Gustav Jung comme archétype féminin et par Sigmund Freud dans "L'Interprétation des rêves", est une femme qui attendit deux mille ans l'homme qu'elle aimait et ne consentit à mourir qu'après l'avoir rencontré. "Empruntant les accents de la tragédie et les péripéties périlleuses du récit d'aventures, ce livre est un roman d'amour, comme on n'en écrit plus guère depuis que les hommes blasés ont perdu le sens de la passion et le goût des Contes de Fées. Ses principaux personnages: Ayesha, dont les yeux foudroient qui les rencontre et dont la beauté ensorcelle qui la regarde, l'archéologue Holly le babouin, tuteur de Leo Vincey le lion, l'homme qu'Elle attend - ne sont que les masques de chair dont se sont revêtus de vieux mythes pour paraître une fois de plus devant nous... Si le génie de Jules Verne se définit par la logique, Henry Rider Haggard trouve le sien dans le délire. Chérissant l'invraisemblable et cultivant la stupeur, il avait pressenti quelque quarante ans avant André Breton que le surréel est vérité et la réalité, imposture. Le merveilleux magique qu'il prône, défiant la pauvreté des explications, plonge ses racines dans le surnaturel, l'ésotérisme, le mystère de la survie, le mysticisme des croyances, et dans les légendes les plus fabuleuses dont les civilisations enfouies ont rêvé dans le sommeil qui a précédé leur mort." - Francis Lacassin (Postface à "She").
