Stella Fregelius

by H. Rider Haggard

We call to mind nothing in fiction old or new that in the remotest degree resembles Stella Fregelius. It is unlike any of Mr. Haggard's previous novels, and Stella is kin to She only as the most unlike of the children of the same parents are kin. Stella is a mystical, spiritual She, not a survival from a remote past, but a soul conscious of its nearness to Eternity, conscious of the superiority of the Spirit over carnal things. The most prominent man in the book, Morris Monk, is a dreamy philosopher in his first manhood, the inventor of the aerophone which is a form of wireless telephone, enabling twin spirits to hold converse though separated by considerable distance and unattached by any sort of tangible or material medium. He enters into an earthly engagement and ultimate union with a beautiful cousin, a delightful woman clever as she is noble, when there comes into his life another -- Stella Fregelius.
