For that matter, the constructions of Said's arguments in _Orientalism_
"derive from explicitly western conceptions of the 'orient.'" That is
what he's talking about after all. And if I read the original post
correctly, that's also at least part of what was being talked about:
western conceptions of the orient. Furthermore, since these conceptions
of the orient are "explicit," what's all the "shock" and your consequent
warning all about: don't you trust us to read? ;)

But isn't my joy

to play my role, to move inside
the pathetic sense that I incarnate?
