Title: "The Meaning of the Orient in Keats's Consciousness"
Authors: Ebtisam Sadiq
Keywords: Geography- India- Atlantic- History- Wisdom- Architecture- Tales- Magic- Romance- Colonial- Jewels- Spices.
Issue Date: 1992
Abstract: This study discovers more than one Orient in Keats’s consciousness, a historical, fictional, and political one. The variety is a direct result of Keats’s exposure to different sources of knowledge about that world. The amalgamation of the three Oriental realms in Keats’s mind allows fictional elements to overshadow historical knowledge. A geographically fluid Orient in which Greece is included emerges in Keats’s poetry. This concept challenges the dominant view of ancient Greece as the source of Western civilization.
