This study approaches Byron's Turkish Tales from within the field of Oriental perspective, contributing to the existing body of knowledge on the tradition of Orientalism in English literature. Byron's intimate grasp of the life of the Orient and his remarkable cross-cultural empathy and insights are pointed out in this in-depth study of his Oriental sources, diction, similes and characters. Moreover, the comparison of Byron's Orientalism with that of his contemporaries, such as Robert Southey and Thomas Moore, illustrates further why Byron stands out in his treatment of the Orient. The five appendices provide a valuable repository of data and more general information on the subject.
