Originally published in 1906, this book examines the oriental tale in England, meaning it considers all the oriental and pseudo-oriental fiction that appeared in English, whether written in English or translater from the French. The highlights fall upon the Arabian Nights, Dr. Johnson's Rasselas, Goldsmith's Citizen of the World, and Beckford's Vathek, and the presnet volume aims to depict clearly the interesting orientalizing tendency of which these apparently isolated works were the best manifestations - a tendency itself a part of the larger movement of English Romanticism.
