1787-1789
[Cuchet]

This book is the 17th volume in a compilation of fantastic stories about journeys to exotic, far-off places. As evidenced in the image, the oriental dress of the characters promises readers a taste of the exotic within the pages of the novel. Fantastical settings often allow writers to cloak risky or dangerous ideas. How does the representation of the exotic in fiction allow the author and reader to explore reality? Furthermore, the image depicts an amorous tension between the man and woman, suggesting a tantalizing story of sensuality for readers. What role does exoticism play in the telling of a love story? The caption reads, “Ah! divine Tamuras, nul mortel dans le monde n’est aussi heuruex que moi” (Ah! divine Tamuras, no mortal in the world is as happy as I).
