Heart of the World (novel)
|Author||H. Rider Haggard|
Heart of the World is an 1895 book by H. Rider Haggard about a lost Mayan city in Mexico. Its importance in the history of fantasy literature was recognized by its republication by the Newcastle Publishing Company as the tenth volume of the Newcastle Forgotten Fantasy Library in September, 1976.
In his study of early science fiction, E. F. Bleiler described Heart of the World as "rich in detail, ingenious and well plotted, but weak in characterization at times. Bleiler also wrote that the novel's "moral message" and its "sense of tragedy" were both "powerfully conveyed".
