Things Oriental

More on Zuleika, Byron etc (see post on 12 Feb).

Hugh corrects me (his forté it appears). He says that the interest in that certain class was not particularly inspired by Byron's poem but an interest in all things "Oriental" at that time. He recommends the book by Edward Said "Western Concepts of the Orient" for those interested in such matters.
