The essays in this book analyze range of genres - such as travel narratives, canonical and non-canonical drama, and prose romances - and consider geographical areas beyond the Ottoman Empire, including Mughal India, Safavid Persia, and the Muslim regions of Southeast and Central Asia.  This collection deepens our post-Saidian understanding of the complexity of real and imagined "traffic" between England and the "Islamic worlds" it encountered and constructed.
