Bawdy and exotic, 1001 Arabian Nights features the wily and seductive Shahrazad, who saves her own life by telling tales of magical transformation, genies and wishes, flying carpets and fantastical journeys, terror and passion to entertain and appease the brutal King Shahryar. First introduced in the West in 1704, the stories of The Thousand and One Nights are most familiar to American readers in sanitized childrens versions. This edition, based on Richard F. Burtons unexpurgated translation, restores the sensuality and lushness of the original Arabic. Here are the famous adventures of Sindbad, Ali Baba and the Forty Thieves, and Aladdin and the Magic Lamp. Here too are less familiar stories, such as Prince Behram and the Princess Al-Datma, a delightful early version of The Taming of the Shrew, and The Wily Dalilah and her Daughter Zaynab, a hilarious tale about two crafty women who put an entire city of men in their place. Intricate and imaginative, these stories-within-stories told over a thousand and one nights continue to captivate readers as they have for centuries. [Publisher Note: Contains footnotes to assist the translation.]
