DEDICATIONIn bygone years the books "She" and "Ayesha" were dedicated toAndrew Lang. Now, when he is dead, this, the last romance thatwill be written concerning "/She-Who-Must-Be-Obeyed/," is offeredas a tribute to his beloved and honoured memory.Ditchingham, 1922.EDITOR'S NOTEWhat was the greatest fault of Ayesha, /She-Who-Must-Be-Obeyed/?Surely a vanity so colossal that, to take one out of manyexamples, it persuaded her that her mother died after looking uponher, fearing lest, should she live, she might give birth toanother child who was less fair.At least, as her story shows, it was vanity, rather than love of the beauteous Greek, Kallikrates, that stained the hands of Shewith his innocent blood and, amongst other ills, brought upon herthe fearful curse of deathlessness while still inhabiting a spherewhere Death is lord of all. Had not Amenartas taunted her with thewaning of her imperial beauty, eaten of the tooth of Time, neverwould she have disobeyed the command of her master, the ProphetNoot, and entered that Fire of Immortality which she was set toguard.Thus it seems that by denial she would have escaped the net of many woes in which, perchance, she is still entangled and of Ayesha, Daughter of Wisdom yet Folly's Slave, there would havebeen no tale to tell and, from her parable of the eternal war of flesh and spirit there would have been no lesson to be learned.But Vanity--or was it Fate?--led her down another road.The Editor.
