Lalla Rookh - poem

Fiction  From /5/1817 

Categories: Literature

An oriental romance by Thomas Moore. The eponymous heroine (the name means 'tulip cheeked') is engaged to the young king of Bukhara. She goes to meet him, but falls in love with Feramorz, a poet from her entourage. When she enters the palace of her betrothed, she faints, but revives at the sound of a familiar voice, and is enraptured to find that the poet she loves is none other than the king to whom she is engaged.

Moore's house was named for the poem.
