Description

The Orientalist romance, in the late medieval period and in modernity, is emblematic of popular attitudes towards the East. This book, the first full-length cross-period comparison of medieval and modern Orientalist romances, offers detailed case studies on how these texts represent sameness and difference in gender, ethnicity, and religion.
