22 Sinclair, delving further, tells of a recurrent nightmare of Nemesis in London's later life: 'He saw in this dream an imperial figure, inexorable as destiny and yet strangely human, descending a cascade of staircases, while he looked up at it and waited to be vanquished.

It is almost as if, with his most fully integrated male persona having just been expressed, London were able to relax, let his masculine ego drift, and focus his imagination on the muse, the anima, the feminine stirring in his nature - that vision of the heroic young woman which had compelled him since his initial, imperfect novelistic outing. A Daughter of the Snows follows this pattern in that it comes after the realistic, manly tales of the Klondike.
