Book Vathek with The Episodes of Vathek

Download or read book Vathek with The Episodes of Vathek written by William Beckford and published by Broadview Press. This book was released on 2001-05-14 with total page 404 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: William Beckford’s Vathek is a touchstone of eighteenth-century Orientalism and of the Gothic novel. Beckford’s later work, The Episodes of Vathek, shares Vathek’s irreverent and decadent style, and an edition that unites the two has long been overdue. The Broadview edition includes a newly discovered early version of the first episode, never before in print, that centres on male-male love, as well as the previously published version that was re-written by Beckford as a heterosexual narrative. Based on the 1823 edition—the last one edited by the author himself—the Broadview Edition also introduces The Episodes in the order Beckford planned, and incorporates his final corrections.

Book Vathek  A Gothic Novel  the Original Translation by Reverend Samuel Henley

Download or read book Vathek A Gothic Novel the Original Translation by Reverend Samuel Henley written by William Beckford and published by e-artnow. This book was released on 2013-08-20 with total page 128 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: This carefully crafted ebook: "Vathek (A Gothic Novel: the Original Translation by Reverend Samuel Henley)" is formatted for your eReader with a functional and detailed table of contents. This Beckford's novel, translated by Samuel Henley, was originally written in French when the author was 21. It was composed in French beginning in 1782, and then translated into English by Reverend Samuel Henley in which form it was first published in 1786. It is the story of Caliph Vathek, whose eye can kill at a glance, who makes a pact with the Devil, Eblis. The Caliph Vathek is dissolute and debauched, and hungry for knowledge. When the mysterious Giaour offers him boundless treasure and unrivalled power he is willing to sacrifice his god, the lives of innocent children, and his own soul to satisfy his obsession. Vathek's extraordinary journey to the subterranean palace of Eblis, and the terrifying fate that there awaits him, is a captivating tale of magic and oriental fantasy, sudden violence and corrupted love, whose mix of moral fable, grotesque comedy, and evocative beauty defies classification. Thomas Beckford ( 1760 – 1844), usually known as William Beckford, was an English novelist, a profligate and consummately knowledgeable art collector and patron of works of decorative art, a critic, travel writer and sometime politician, reputed at one stage in his life to be the richest commoner in England.
