HUSAIN HADDAWY ARABIAN NIGHTS PDF

The second advantage is that it is more authentic than Burton's text. On the contrary, when we can go straight from us to them, without the Victorian intermediary, we can not only appreciate the true exoticism of their setting but also recognize the level on which they are stories about us--great stories about our vain hopes of staving off death and the torments of our sexual jealousy and infidelity. It begins 30 years after the war, in a rented cabin deep in the Minnesota wilderness. Wade and his wife, Kathy, have retreated there after his political career is destroyed by press publication of his darkest secret--his presence in My Lai during the massacre.

The origins of The Arabian Nights are obscure. About a thousand years ago a vast number of stories in Arabic from various countries began to be brought together; only much later was the collection called The Arabian Nights or the Thousand and One Nights. All the stories are told by Shahrazad Scheherazade , who entertains her husband, King Shahryar, whose custom it was to execute his wives after a single night.

Shahrazad begins a story each night but withholds the ending until the following night, thus postponing her execution. The Modern Library has played a significant role in American cultural life for the better part of a century.

The Modern Library continues to provide the world'sbest books, at the best prices. This selection includes many of the stories that are universally known though seldom read in this authentic form: "Alaeddin; or, the Wonderful Lamp, " "Sindbad the Seaman and Sindbad the Landsman, " and "Ali Baba and the Forty Thieves.
