    Vathek Epub ì ↠ PDF EPUB kdglasscouk vathek book, Vathek ePUBA preposterous proto orientalist fantasia full of afrits genies harems and evil plots Based very loosely on the life of the ninth century caliph al Wathik it is structured around a Faustian deal with the devil – it's a fast read and tonally uite a strange one Obviously Beckford was enamoured of the 1001 Nights but his story is also shot through with curious elements of his own and it all builds to an unusually dark ending Vathek is sometimes described as a Gothic novel and it does share some of those themes – a sense of th

    Vathek Epub ì ↠ PDF EPUB kdglasscouk vathek book, Vathek ePUBThis is an 18th century Gothic novel written by an English author but written in the French language It's about an Arabian sultan who makes a deal with the devil which almost never ends well That's an odd mix of tags but this is an odd story It reminds me a bit of Castle Otranto but violent Just not my cup of tea

    Vathek Epub ì ↠ PDF EPUB kdglasscouk vathek book, Vathek ePUBI seem to have embarked on a re exploration of the gothic genre After finishing a re read of The Castle Of Otranto by Horace Walpole a couple of days back Last night I finished Vathek by William Beckford a novel which also stems from the trend for Orientalist fiction which played upon the exoticism of an imagined Arabic setting largely inspired by translations

    Vathek Epub ì ↠ PDF EPUB kdglasscouk vathek book, Vathek ePUBFirst published in 1786 William Beckford's Vathek was apparently written in the span of 3 days which while it is not an extremely long book is still incredible given its sheer imagination It makes me wonder what else Beckford could have accomplished if his greatest novel was put down on paper in a mere 3 days He was very talented as evidenced by his writing yet apparently was never truly able to harness his talents One may only wonder if he could have even surpassed the fame of writers like Poe had he written Vathek is a wild voluptuous sensual and decidedly dark and Gothic tale about a Middle Eastern Caliph who can have anything he wants any woman or object he de
