Description

Lawyer and MP Sir Edward Leithen has always taken a protective stance towards the introspective Vernon Milbourne, orphaned since childhood and haunted by a powerful recurring dream. A cruise in the Aegean introduces them to the romantically mysterious Greek island of Plakos where Vernon is enthralled by ancient rites and myth. But when they encounter bold and beautiful Kor 'e Arabin, whose father's legacy is the islanders' hatred, fanatic local superstitions become more menacing and Vernon is compelled to take action against her destruction. A fast-paced and exciting adventure of psychological complexity, trial and redemption, obsession and destiny, The Dancing Floor (1926) is one of Buchan's most resonant, exotic and romantic novels. This book is intended for undergraduate courses on twentieth-century fiction; the general reader.show more
