The appearance in translation of Antoine Galland's "Arabian Nights' Entertainments" early in the 18th century introduced into the English literary tradition the oriental tale. This volume brings together four of the most influential of these oriental tales.
This selection contains `Almoran and Hamet' by John Hawkesworth, `The History of Nourjahad' by Frances Sheridan, `The History of Charoba, Queen of Aegypt' by Clara Reeve, and `Murad the Unlucky' by Maria Edgeworth. This book is intended for students of the early English novel; the Middle East; 18th-century studies; the short story; and narrative theory.
