Henry Ryder Haggard (English Haggard, Henry Rider, June 22, 1856 Bradenham (Norfolk County) - May 14, 1925 London) - English prose writer, lawyer and specialist in agronomy and soil science; classic of world adventure literature. Biography After graduating from the legal profession between 1875 and 1881, he lived in South Africa: he was first the secretary of Henry Bulwer - the governor of Natal, then in 1878 he became the manager and registrar of the Supreme Court in the Transvaal. Then he settled in England and took up agriculture and literary work. He traveled all over England, compiling a report on the state of agriculture and the state of the rural population. In 1884 he passed the relevant exam and became a practicing lawyer. However, Haggard`s law practice was not attractive - he wanted to write. Haggard has tried his hand at writing historical, psychological and fantasy stories with considerable success. Everything he created is marked by a rich imagination, extraordinary believability and scale of the narrative. As a reward for his labors for the good of the British Empire, he was elevated to the dignity of knighthood (1912). Creativity Haggard`s world-wide fame was brought by novels about adventures in South Africa, in which the fantastic element plays an essential role; the author`s constant fascination with lost worlds, the ruins of ancient mysterious civilizations, archaic cults of immortality and reincarnation of souls made him (in the eyes of many critics) one of the undisputed forerunners of modern fantasy [source?]. Popular Haggard hero, white hunter and adventurer Allan Quartermain is a central character in many books. The Adventures of Allan Quartermain * 1885 - "King Solomon`s Mines", the film "Mines of King Solomon" was filmed * 1887 - "Allan Quartermain: a description of his further adventures and discoveries in company with the Baronet Sir Henry Curtis, Captain John Goode and a certain Umslopogaas "(Allan Quatermain: Being an Account of His Further Adventures and Discoveries in Company with Sir Hehry Curtis, Bart., Commander John Good, and one Umslopogaas) * 1889 -" Maiwa`s Revenge "* 1912 -" Mari " (Marie) * 1913 - Child of Storm * 1915 - The Holy Flower * 1916 - The Ivory Child * 1916 - Finished * 1920 - "The Ancient Allan" * 1921 - "She and Allan dick" * 1924 - "Heu-heu, or the Monster" * 1926 - "Treasures lakes "(The Treasure of the Lake) * 1927 -" Allan and the Ice Gods: A Tale of Beginnigs "The Adventures of Ayesha * 1887 -" She: and story adventure "(She: A History of Adventure) * 1905 -" Ayesha: her return "(Ayesha: The Return of She) * 1923 -" Daughter of wisdom: the life and love story of the one who submits "(Wisdom`s Daughter: The Life and Love Story of She-Who-Must-Be-Obeyed) Other Works * 1889 - Cleopatra * 1890 - The World`s Desire, co-authored with Andrew Lang * 1891 - Eric Brighteyes, an epic Viking novel) * 1893 - The Daughter of Montezuma * 1894 - The People of the Mist * 1895 - Heart of the World * 1896 - The Wizard ) * 1903 - "Stella Fregelius: A Tale of Three Destinies" * 1906 - "Benita: An African Romance" * 1907 - "Beautiful Margaret" * 1908 - "F The Yellow God: An Idol of Africa * 1910 - Queen Sheba`s Ring * 1911 - The Mahatma and the Hare: A Dream stor y) * 1918 - Love Eternal * 1919 - When the World Shook: Being an Account of the Great Adventure of Bastin, Bickley, and Arbuthnot ) * 1920 - Smith and the Pharaohs Collected Works From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
