An Orientalist Reading of Thomas Prestonís Cambyses: A Lamentable Tragedy Mixed Full of Pleasant Mirth

Abdul Ghaffar Bhatti, LubnaYasir, Safia Asif.

Abstract
The study aims at the application of Edward Saidís views in his seminal work Orientalism (2003) to Thomas Prestonís play Cambyses. After thorough study, the researchers have extracted some of the key and relevant assumptions from Saidís Orientalism and rigorously applied them to the play. The researchersí main contention is that Preston, like other contemporary writers, has intentionally misrepresented the Orient and Oriental characters with a view to establishing and asserting the Western cultural superiority. The playwright did so due to the pervasive ideology of the period which was based on denigration and demonization of the cultural others. The findings of the research substantiate the researchersí contention that Prestonís Cambyses explicitly evinces his Eurocentric perspectives which is Saidís focal point in Orientalism.

Key words: Orientalism, Misrepresentation, Demonization, Cultural others, Eurocentric Perspectives
