The Arabian Nights Summary


The Arabian Nights: A Selection by Volume editor Jack David Zipes

Probably this is one of the original "story within a story" book. "Arabian Nights" is a selection of stories told by a young girl on her wedding night to a price who has sworn he will kill any girl who marries him. Her clever stories keep him from murdering her night after night. This is where classic fairy tales such as "Aladdin and Ali Baba" and the "Forty Thieves" come from as well as moral tales and metaphors. The use of djins, magic and Eastern splendour makes "Arabian Nights" dazzle. It is a must read and a perfect counter point to western fairy tales such as "Hans Christian Anderson" and the "Brothers Grimm".
