Description

Vathek; An Arabian Tale is a Gothic novel written by William Beckford, and first published in 1786. It chronicles the fall from power of the Caliph Vathek, who renounces Islam and engages with his mother, Carathis, in a series of licentious and deplorable activities designed to gain him supernatural powers. Vathek was written during a time when part of European culture was influenced by Orientalism.
