“Thus all of Orientalism stands forth and away from the Orient: that Orientalism makes sense at all depends more on the West than on the Orient, and this sense is directly indebted to various Western techniques of representation that make the Orient visible, clear, “there” in discourse about it”. (Edward Said, Orientalism, in Norton). To what extent can Said’s statement be interestingly applied to the ‘techniques of representation’ employed by Lady Mary Wortley Montagu in The Turkish Embassy Letters.
