Synopsis

E a tentação era tão deliciosa e forte – que Onofre, diante, tremia todo, com uma espuma na boca ressequida, e grossas lágrimas rolando pelas barbas. Fugia: a mesa reaparecia tão rente do seu peito, que ele sentia a frescura da neve, o fumo da carne, e um aroma de pomar regado, e de flor de romãzeira, e de flor de laranjeira. Dava um brusco empurrão àquelas delícias do Inferno: – as frutas esboroavam-se sobre os seus pés, rachando de maduras, os vinhos entornados faziam regatos cheirosos na areia. Desesperado, torcia os braços, gritava pelo Senhor! «Socorro, meu Deus, socorro!» Tudo desaparecia: – mas logo sobre ele pendiam grossos ramos, carregados de laranjas, de romãs, de cachos de moscatel, de damascos dourados – e do chão rebentava uma chama clara onde um anho, gordo e branco, alourava no espeto... Onofre espedaçava os ramos, Onofre espezinhava o lume. «Socorro, meu Deus, socorro!»

Sir Henry Rider Haggard (1856-1925) is best remembered for his 34 adventure fantasy novels set in exotic locations. As a child, Haggard, whose father was an English barrister, was considered dim-witted and was inclined to daydreaming. His parents ended his formal education when he was seventeen, and he was sent to work in South Africa, where his imagination was inspired by the people, animals, and jungle. He became close friends with authors Rudyard Kipling and Andrew Lang. Haggard's most popular books are King Solomon's Mines (1886) and She (1887). He also wrote short stories, as well as nonfiction on topics such as gardening, English farming, and rural life, interests which led to duties on government commissions concerned with land maintenance. For his literary contributions and his government service, Haggard was knighted in 1912. Several of Haggard's novels have been filmed. She was filmed in 1965, starring Ursula Andress. King Solomon's Mines was filmed with Stewart Granger and Deborah Kerr in 1950, and again with Richard Chamberlain and Sharon Stone in 1985. Also, the novel Allan Quatermain was filmed as Allan Quatermain and the Lost City of Gold with Richard Chamberlain and Sharon Stone in 1986.
