The Blazing-World

blazingcavendishThe Description of a New World, Called The Blazing-World
by Margaret Cavendish
1666 / classic fiction
(totally unable to rate this)

Fascinating, author but this story although short, is difficult to read. Cavendish created a world of sci-fi with talking animals and specialized thinking where her protagonist lands after being kidnapped. It’s at the North Pole but you can’t really get there from here.

She learns about this world, becomes Empress and returns to her own land to rescue it. It’s part sci-fi, part adventure, part satire and part romance.
