Fables of the East

Selected Tales 1662-1785

Edited by Ros Ballaster

  • The stories are themselves entertaining and the extracts make sense in their own right providing an acquaintance with a range of texts not currently available to readers
  • The combination of travel accounts, animal fables, letter fictions, and oriental tales illustrates the broad range of genre and style in representations of the East
  • The diversity of representation challenges the tendency to equate the Orient with Islam both in earlier periods and now
  • Accessible and informative headnotes, footnotes, and a glossary provide context and information to allow the reader to navigate the texts
