    Ah, if only I could write like the late Sir Richard Burton Normally I dislike translations, but to refuse to read The Arabian Nights on those grounds would be like refusing to read the Bible I love parodying people s styles, and I have tried my utmost to parody Burton convincingly, but I can t do it He s too clever He has taken this unique book, a miraculous survival from the most ancient antiquity, and he has created a unique language to make it accessible to us the backbone is a kind of Spense [...]

    When I was a little girl my grandmother gave me a big, blue, cloth bound edition of this book It had the most exquisite coloured plates protected by tissue paper interleaved with the printed sheets It was the perfect storybook for a bookish, fanciful child living in an abusive home I spent a year reading this book Every night I would read it and disappear from all the fear and unpleasantness around me into this realm of people in exotic clothes who could do magic I cherished the book I took it e [...]

    The I read user reviews of The Arabian Nights, the convinced I am that people are just posting negative things to be contrary How can you not love this collection of stories Common complaints 1 It s racist Yes, the work itself, by today s standards, could probably be considered racist This work was originally written many thousands of years ago Keep that in mind and get off your high horse.2 It s misogynistic I disagree That which would be considered misogynistic falls into the category of tha [...]

  4. JG (The Introverted Reader) says:
    For those 2 people who don t know, The Arabian Nights is sort of a collection of short stories told in the Arabian world, as I m told it should be called, which seems to include India and parts of China waaaaaay back in the day The framework of the story is about a sultan who caught his wife cheating on him After he has her killed, he decides to take out his revenge on the entire sex, so he marries a different wife every day and has her killed the next morning Scheherazade is the Grand Vizier s [...]

    A library of books is the fairest garden in the world, and to walk there is an ecstasy.Within the span of the ninth to the thirteen centuries my library consists of these Beowulf, The Pillow Book, The Tale of Genji, As I Crossed a Bridge of Dreams, The Sagas of Icelanders, Njal s Saga, and this What a show of power, then, that a monumental collection the likes of which the Anglo world has never even attempted to replicate is popularly framed as a collection of children s tales, sexy times, and a [...]

  8. Manny says:
    As I say in my review, I wanted to write a parody of this wonderful book but was forced to admit defeat Burton is too damn clever for a good parody to be possible During my preliminary negotiations, I had however received a remarkable offer from Alfonso A Burton parody without political incorrectness is unthinkable, and Alfonso bravely put himself forward to play the role of an evil blackamoor of hideous appearance It seems wrong that Alfonso s selfless devotion to literature should go unrewarde [...]

    A Story to Save a LiveThe beauty of the stories and the poetry of the thought that most destructive demons can be tamed back with a few stories was fascinating to me even when I first saw the serialized version on tv What I didn t realized was that the stories Scheherazade, that great goddess of story tellers and inventor of cliff hangings, told the king weren t as random but had an order in themselves.This book has made Scherzade my favorite superhero superhero was the word we use for one who r [...]

    Oh, the wonders of literature While reading this book I could not help but sing the songs or hum the tunes associated with the tales A whole new worldA new fantastic point of viewNo one to tell us noOr where to goOr say we re only dreaming I grew up with mostly Filipino komiks around me Only my father loved reading books and we had very few compared to what I have now classics and contemporary books at home My parents did not read to me when I was young Those are the reasons why I missed all tho [...]

    As I have not read the Nights yet, this is not a commentary on them, but rather a comparison of the many translations available This used to be a comment on my not yet review of the first volume of the Lyons translation of the Nights, but I thought it would be helpful if it was a review I ve expanded on some of my earlier comments and tried to be critical than I like this one or this one seems odd , which was all I had time to write at the time I posted the comment This is restricted to editio [...]

  14. Destiny Dawn Long says:
    This edition is a translation of the first 271 nights from the 1001 Nights cycle One of my favorite aspects of this work is the role of Shahrazad While many people discuss that she is telling the stories to save her own life, what people fail to recognize many times is that, really, she volunteers to be placed in the position in order to save her kingdom She s a great literary heroine saving the world through storytelling It also provides a great lens into a world that today is depicted in US me [...]

    I am planning to read through this whole book someday, I swear But it s going to be a slow process Here, in list form, are the reasons I may or may not finish The Arabian Nights.Reasons I May Finish This Ridiculously Long Book Scheherazade or whichever of the twenty ways to spell her name you prefer is kind of a badass genius Since her father is the king s vizier, she gets exempted from said batshit crazy king s plan to marry and then kill every single available virgin in the city But she volunt [...]

  16. Alex says:
    What you thought was the Arabian Nights was likely Richard Burton s bastardized, inflated 19th century adaptation, which was as much about Richard Burton and his weird ideas about sex as it was about Arabia Which is sortof neither here nor there there is no canonical version of Arabian Nights anyway It s just an umbrella term for, basically, all of the Middle East s favorite stories And if the version that heavily influenced guys like Borges was Burton s, isn t Burton s version the one that s a [...]

    When I first read One Thousand and One Nights I was literally put under the book s spell charmed, enchanted and bewitched It isn t just magic of fairytales It is first of all magic of the oriental world And of course I was at once mesmerized with the incredible frame tale of Shahryar and Scheherazade.Nowhere is so much magic as in Arabian Nights magical word opening the cave door Open, Sesame And forthwith appeared a wide doorway in the face of the rock The robbers went in, and last of all their [...]

    As a child I had a small selection of tales from the Arabian nights in a hardback volume with a few gorgeous full colour plates From this a couple of stories stayed with me, a Sultan travelling in disguise meets a man who having learnt of the Sultan s weakness for baby cucumbers was intent on trying to fool him out of a fortune in exchange for them, the man although greedy is also garrulous, tells the Sultan in disguise his wicked plans enabling the Sultan to turn the tables on him and trick him [...]

    I really need a 2.5 stars option, though I would end up using it on three fourths of everything As a generic, I can neither recommend nor disavow this book.Okay so the beloved Arabian Nights, tales from a thousand and one nights I should start with what this is NOT This is not a linear story about a princess telling stories to a king This is not a children s read involving genies, magic, and cyclopi I refuse to spell this any other way, no matter the red line beneath it This IS a collection of s [...]

    Having just re read this book i m reminded how the flowery wording and a hint of eastern promise manages to white wash over the actual issues of the story Sheharezade is actually technically being kept hostage with a death penalty hanging over her head, forced to spin yarns to save not only her skin but that of all the other virgins in the vicinty Her tales touch on marital rape, mass murder, theft, deception, fratricide, regicide, racism and necromancy And you all thought American Psycho was ba [...]

  25. Megan says:
    This is a very sad book, in the sense that it makes you think, What the hell happened to Baghdad Here, Baghdad is pretty much the most magical city in the world, and most of the Arabian Nights takes place in or around it The world of the Arabian Nights is amazingly liberal compared to Europe of the same period which is roughly the 13th century , especially when it comes to women From the storytelling heroine Scheherazade on down, most of the women of the Arabian Nights are well educated and have [...]

  26. Diba says:
    Although I simply have problem with the title, since it should be One thousand and one night, the translation of Burton is worthy to read and also should be praised to introduce such a masterpiece to Western literature Not only do these stories depict cultural and social codes of Middle East and centra Asia, but also they convey how morality and wisdom were respected in these societies As we are living in an era that most people are biased about their originality and are focused on the small wor [...]

    Shahrazad turned to King Shahrayar and said, May I have your permission to tell a story He replied, Yes, and Shahrazad was very happy and said, Listen Of all of the world s story collections, surely The Arabian Nights has the best framing device the best fictional pretext by which to justify the telling of the other stories I mean the story of Shahrazad as this text transliterates her name , the daughter of the vizier to King Shahrayar Bitter over his first wife s betrayal, Shahrayar decides tha [...]
