Rainsford is relieved to get to the island. He falls asleep as soon as he swims to shore. When he wakes up he sees a thick jungle setting,
He saw no sign of a trail through the closely knit web of weeds and trees; it was easier to go along the shore, and Rainsford floundered along by the water. Not far from where he landed, he stopped.
He follows a path and eventually finds a large gothic-like mansion.
"Mirage," thought Rainsford. But it was no mirage, he found, when he opened the tall spiked iron gate. The stone steps were real enough; the massive door with a leering gargoyle for a knocker was real enough; yet above it all hung an air of unreality.
