Seraglio definition: (formerly) the harem of a Muslim house or palace | Meaning, pronunciation, translations and examples. “The Steel Seraglio is not a work of feminist or utopian theory. Nor is it a historical fantasy, a romance, a thriller, a poem, an allegory, or an epic. Rather, somehow, it is all of these things.” —Neon Magazine “A masterful, engaging and utterly fascinating story by three wonderful writers.” —SF Revu.

  [ The Steel Seraglio is] a thrilling tale.” — Publishers Weekly “ The Steel Seraglio brings its alternate world of struggle, politics and magic very much to life, transcending the more labored construct of symbol and metaphor in a fairy tale or fable retold only to make some kind of point.” — Locus4/4(2). Seraglio definition, the part of a Muslim house or palace in which the wives and concubines are secluded; harem. See more.
