Synopsis : Never without grief and pain could I remember the fate of Prince Zaleski --victim of a too importunate, too unfortunate Love, which the fulgor of the throne itself could not abash; exile perforce from his native land, and voluntary exile from the rest of men! Having renounced the world, over which, lurid and inscrutable as a falling star, he had passed, the world quickly ceased to wonder at him; and even I, to whom, more than to another, the workings of that just and passionate mind had been revealed, half forgot him in the rush of things. But during the time that what was called the "Pharanx labyrinth" was exercising many of the heaviest brains in the land, my thought turned repeatedly to him; and even when the affair had passed from the general attention, a bright day in Spring, combined perhaps with a latent mistrust of the denoument of that dark plot, drew me to his place of hermitage. I reached the gloomy abode of my friend as the sun set. . . .

A propos de l'auteur: One of ten children, Matthew Phipps Shiel was born in the West Indies on July 21, 1865. His mother was a mulatto and his father worked as a shopkeeper and as a lay Methodist minister. Shiel received his education at Harrison College in Barbados. Shiel received the most critical acclaim for his sci-ence-fiction novel titled The Purple Cloud. This book, pub-lished in 1901, describes a tragic and brutal world in which most human life has been eliminated by a toxic purple gas. The book became a movie in 1959 after being retitled The World, the Flesh, and the Devil. This dark and controversial film starred Harry Belafonte, Mel Ferrer, and Inger Stevens.
