Notes:

When you issue from these dark passages into this large space flooded with light, the effect is similar to that produced by a diorama. You can almost fancy that an enchanter’s wand has transported you to the Orient of four or five centuries ago. Time, which changes everything in its flight, has altered nothing here” (p. 309)

The chapter on the Alhambra, from which that excerpt was taken, was written by Théophile Gautier.
