In 1903 Lieutenant Olivier Ferrières of the French army welcomes Captain de Saint-Avit as the new commandant of his post in Algeria.
Shunned by his fellow officers, the captain has been accused of the brutal murder of his friend Lieutenant Morhange, when the two were lost alone in the desert.
Shunned by his fellow officers, the captain has been accused of the brutal murder of his friend Lieutenant Morhange, when the two were lost alone in the desert.
Antinea, the queen of Atlantis, seeks to destroy and imprison the men in her net through her beauty and cruelty, enshrining their electroplated bodies in a fantastic hall, assigning each doomed lover a number and a plaque in his memory.
Caught in this web, Saint-Avit and Morhange attempt to escape until love, passion, and jealousy threaten their friendship and their very lives.
For only one man has ever captured the heart of Antinea, and no one escapes the queen of Atlantis.
Somewhere, in a remote region of the Sahara desert, there, still hides a Queen and her servants, taking refuge inside caves.
She is the last descendant of Atlantis kings lineage; the offspring of Neptune and Clito.
She is the last descendant of Atlantis´ kings lineage; the offspring of Neptune and Clito.
The book is about the story of two military men who have been there.
The latter manages to escape the hide-out; but is found moribund in the desert, by a caravan.
What really happened to him?
Saint-Avit returned to Paris.
He tries to forget about the experience.
While in a café, midst the jazz tunes, he recalls the veiled-Queen.
How they found out the palace… the strange tifinar Tuareg inscriptions; how they got imprisoned, separately, inside the palace; how Morhange got received by the queen; and the jealousy of Saint Avit.
How they were introduced in the red marble room: where golden statues of the men of the Queen stand.
Only one escaped, but even that one returned.
Suicide, or craziness or opium can explain their deaths.
Who shall become the 54th?
As for the book, I would like to make a short commentary about the polemics court-case which involved Benoit: did he plagiarize H.
Haggard especially from the novel Ayesha?
However, in the book there are plenty of English references, like: «Je ne me souviendrai jamais sans émotion de mes dix-neuvième et vingtième années, époque où je liquidai complètement ce petit héritage.
Londres était véritablement alors une the last queen of atlantis adorable.
Je m'étais arrangé une très aimable garçonnière dans Piccadilly.
Shops, palaces, bustle and breeze, The whirling of wheels, and the murmur of trees.
Regarde, ça se voit encore.
Was it not Fate, that, on this July midnight.
And he lost the case.
Interestingly, in the library of Queen Antinea, Morhange and Saint Avit found many books; they browsed through them: one was Don Qijote…the other was Macbeth.
At least they Haggard and Benoit shared something: this taste for the adventurous and the exotic, and they were good at making it live,….
Erudite, as some of his characters, Benoit made it well.
Pierre Benoit 1886-1962 enjoyed enormous popularity during his lifetime and a considerable degree of literary acclaim as well.
He was elected to the Académie française in 1931.

Queen of Atlantis was slightly controversial at the time of its publication in 1919, its similarities to H.
While both books draw their inspiration from the same mythological and historical sources and there are thematic resemblances the two books are sufficiently distinct to stand on their own merits.
The setting is the French colonial empire in North Africa at the close of the 19th century.
A new officer has arrived to take command of the small fort of Hassi-Inifel in the The last queen of atlantis />Captain Saint-Avit is a rather notorious personage.
On a previous expedition it is widely believed that he was responsible for the death of his colleague Captain Morhange, and in fact may have murdered him.
Saint-Avit relates his strange tale to a brother officer.
Morhange was a man of slightly mystical bent.
He had taken several years leave of absence from the army with the intention of taking religious orders but then returned to military service.
Morhange is slightly evasive as to his purpose in undertaking the expedition with Saint-Avit.
He is very interested in certain inscriptions regarding a woman named Antinea, presumably a queen from the distant past.
Whatever it was he was searching for, what they find is beyond all expectations.
It is nothing less than a hidden kingdom.
It is more than that.
And it is ruled by Queen Antinea.
Among her subjects are three ill-assorted and slightly disreputable Europeans.
The others are to be found in the Hall of Red Marble, embalmed and encased in an unknown metal.
When Morhange and Saint-Avit enquire what these men there are over fifty of them died from they are informed that all died of love.
When she tires of them they die.
She does not put them to death.
They simply cannot live after being discarded by her.
Some seek death through drugs, or drink, or suicide, or they simply die.
One man did escape but a few years later he found himself compelled to return.
Dying of love for Antinea seemed preferable to living.
Antinea herself may be timeless, she may be immortal, she may be unimaginably old the book is deliberately vague about these detailsor she may be as much a victim of her own cult as her lovers.
It was written just after the First World War and reflects the mood of extreme pessimism and despair that afflicted intellectuals at that period a mood that has arguably had a fatal influence on the subsequent course of western civilisation.
It in fact represents a kind of fatalistic death cult.
Which makes it peculiarly relevant to our own age.
The afterword by Hugo Frey is worth reading simply as an illustration of the deadly effects of political correctness and postmodernism on literary criticism.
The irony is that it is Frey rather than Benoit who is unable to escape the narrow-minded prison of his own times.

Benoit writes about a Kingdom of Atlantis that was not so much sunk into the ocean as arisen from the ocean, where it exists as a mountain kingdom in the middle of the Sahara Desert, no less.
Antinea, the Queen of Atlantis, likes to capture young Europeans that stray or are misguided into her realm, where she proceeds to love them to death and exhibit their mummified remains in a red marble hall.
Lieutenant Andre de Saint-Avit and Captain Morhange find themselves in this situation.
One of them escapes to tell the tale.
Benoit was accused of being a collaborationist during the Second World War, and he was convicted, which affected his writing career for a while.
He served six months in prison, and his work was blacklisted for a few years.
This is a fast read and is fun once the plot gets going.

Το βιβλίο είναι γραμμένο το 1919 και δείχνει σε μεγάλο βαθμό τα χρόνια του, όμως το διάβασα αρκετά ευχάριστα και γρήγορα.
Δεν ξετρελάθηκα και τόσο από την πλοκή, που νιώθω ότι κάπου την έχω ξαναδεί ή ξανακούσει, όμως μου άρεσαν οι περιγραφές των τοπίων, οι σκηνές δράσης και η όλη ατμόσφαιρα.
Η γραφή είναι καλούτσικη και με λίγο λεπτό χιούμορ εδώ και κει και οι χαρακτήρες αρχετυπικοί.

Atlantida by Pierre Benoit Even though this is a bit average in a classic; I enjoyed reading it.
It reminded me of those old Tarzan movies.
What it is though; is more of an example of the old Trope about the beautiful, seductive, feminine character whom the protagonists all fall in love with sometimes inexplicably.
It seems there was some argument that Pierre plagiarized this from H.

Though it does use a similar template of lost world and has Africa as the last queen of atlantis setting and the lovely irresistible woman as the centerpiece; the similarities end there.
Where She's Alesha, the centerpiece of H.
Haggards story, is an almost tragic woman trapped in her own tragic love story; the centerpiece of Alantida, Antinea, is more of a sinister siren that would be almost a complete opposite to Alesha.
Alantida seems to lack the examination of morals and ethics that She has.
It's still an interesting read that once again gives the reader an examination of the views of woman and the affect on literature.
But as I mentioned, it reads, to me, more like some of the movies I've seen from that time where the male characters are paralyzed under the influence of a hideously though beautiful and seductive evil.
I recommend this to anyone who has read SHE for the contrast and to those who have read this I'd recommend SHE for something with just a bit more substance.

Atlantida was the sloggiest French genre novel that I have ever read, with an oddly nesting doll-esque frame story structure, descriptions of the setting that drag on for ages, and very little suspense.
It would have made an okay short story, but as a novel, I thought it was slightly interminable.
However, this novel does include the quote:.
I'm told this book shares a lot in common with the more famous "She", but as I have not read that one yet, I'll come back later to comment.
I have "She" and "King Solomon's Mines" in one volume.
At any rate, this is a pretty exciting story, but ultimately you long for a hero, and the one hero of the story is killed by the narrator.
This is not a spoiler; you are told from the very start about the Captain's death.

As to the premise, I like the idea that Atlantis was once the tips of the Ahaggar Mountains when the Sahara was a sea.
But the true shock of the story revolves around the Queen and all the lovers who die one way or another for her, and end up turned into statues in her great hall.
Morbid stuff, but kinda neat.
Ultimately though I went with 3 stars because a book of this length shouldn't take me a month to read; I kept putting it down and not returning to it for days at a time.
A forgotten French master, who wrote an astonishing number of novels filled with the last queen of atlantis, exotic settings, lethal femmes fatales whose first names always start with an Ahopeless romantic loves.
All those books -who were extremely popular when they were published- are actually very well written, and some of them, like MADEMOISELLE DE LA FERTE, are in fact real masterpieces of great psychological depth.
This one -about the myth of Atlantis- was a tremendous hit, inspired Ah, Pierre Benoît.

This was an interesting take on the lost city of Atlantis by a French author.
This is an Ace Science Fiction Classic, series F, F-281.
On the pale water of the little pool, motionless and fixed like a silver nail, a star had just been born.
Pierre Benoit diciamo che come romanzo avrebbe pure i suoi perché, purtroppo è scritto davvero male.
La trama si svolge in maniera troppo superficiale.
Un vero peccato: l'idea è bellissima.
