This page is meant primarily to be a resource for students and teachers of Byron's "The Giaour." Students may view the power point presentations at their own pace, and will find a bibliography as well. In addition to "Orientalism and Byron's 'The Giaour,'" there is a module on Byron's use of Arabic and Indian words in the poem, some visual arts that illustrate the points and concepts discussed in the modules, a list of assignments for students, and a short paper on agricultural innovations, the Industrial Revolution, and the Neoclassical and Romantic concepts of nature.
