What is an arabesque?
It might not be possible to tell which tales are grotesque and which are arabesque, since it seems that even Poe himself did not see them that way, in other words as being one… or the other. In his preface to the work he does not state which are which. The work is a two volume set and there were no distinctions that the grotesque tales were in one volume and the arabesque tales were in the other. Some critics have given an opinion that the grotesque tales are the gory ones while the arabesque tales are the non-gory ones even though both types may be tales of terror. The debate continues evermore.
The French word is the same as the English word, 'arabesque'. It means adorned in the Arabic fashion, using motifs based on flowers, foliage, geometric patterns, text, etc.
