Semi-Saracenic architecture, sustaining itself as if by miracle in mid air; glittering in the red sunlight with a hundred oriels, minarets, and pinnacles; and seeming the phantom handiwork, conjointly, of the Sylphs,... the Fairies,... the Genii, and ... the Gnomes.
Edgar Allan Poe
Edgar Allan Poe (1809-1849), U.S. author. "The Domain of Arnheim," Columbian Lady's and Gentleman's Magazine (1847). The epogee of beauty in the dreamscape of the arabesque.
