The History of the Caliph Vathek
by William Beckford
One of the most famous and influential fantasy works. Its pages –according the H.P. Lovecraft– are
“triumphs of weird coloring which raise the book to a permanent place in English letters”.
Vathek: The book that Lord Byron called “my Bible”!
“Classic in merit and markedly different from its fellows is the celebrated History of the Caliph Vathek… Beckford, well read in Eastern Romance, caught the atmosphere with unusual receptivity… The descriptions are triumphs of weird colouring which raise the book to a permanent place in English letters.”
