   schema:description "Although this did not translate into a new political and literary openness, it did at least demonstrate the existence of a more complex cultural interaction between East and West. This admission has been completely sidelined in many recent debates on orientalism. Above all, Sharafuddin argues that the Romantic writers in question present a rich and subversive view of the Orient not simply informed by inherited stereotypes."@en ;
   schema:description "Landor's Gebir and the establishment of romantic Orientalism -- Southey's Thalaba and Christo-Islamic ethics -- Thomas Moore's Lalla Rookh and the politics of irony -- Byron's 'Turkish tales" and realistic Orientalism."@en ;
   schema:description "Islam and Romantic Orientalism will be of great interest to those concerned with the debate about orientalism and post-colonialism and to students of nineteenth-century English literature."@en ;
   schema:description "However, he argues that in the work of such writers as Southey, Byron, Moore, Landor and Beckford, the world of Islam appears not as an antithesis to the world of European civilization, but rather as an alternative cultural reality with its own values. He explores the sense in which the work of these writers opens up the possibility for a knowledge of the Orient that does not simply confirm ideologies of Western power and hegemony. Themes of the exotic and the fanciful in fact had the effect of challenging the boundaries of Western-centred culture and thus created the conditions for a more positive perception of other cultures."@en ;
