Overall all the stories are really interesting with magical elements as well as suspenseful events occurring in them.
However, some stories were left without an ending, which was the case even for the main story. Apart from the confusion caused by some stories being cut off and another starting, it was an enjoyable book.
I cannot seem to see the end. Everything is linked and turns out to make zero sense. A big mess it is I know they are tales but, man, every character has a story to tell.
Every damn one. Even the bird shitting on their heads. Even when their story is boring as hell. It's a wonder Sheherazade's head didn't find itself on a spike.
All I can say is I am one die hard Hatim Tai fan so loved this book. Reminded me of alladin and alif laila.
A bit nostalgic, nevertheless the stories are also enlightning and interesting. The language is easy and good. Over all Loved it.
A tale within a tale within a tale within a tale. Eat your heart out, Inception! View all 7 comments. Lovedddd it up until the end of The Prince and the Princess!
What a disturbing ending. Otherwise enjoyable! Would have liked more about how it ended for Scheherazade!
One of my main goals this year for my reading list is to finish all the books that I own that Ive never read. Unfortunately, after something years of collecting, multiple moves across the country in which my books stayed at the Kamloops home-base , and spending more energy reading library books my unread collection has grown to well over items of varying genre, format, and length and become unsurprisingly daunting.
This could have backfired, but he picked my collection of tales from the Arabian Nights, which actually ended up being a perfect book to read before bed over the Dead Days between Christmas and New Years.
The tone was very whimsical but still no nonsense and realistic and the stories that Scheherazade tells to the Sultan to save her life and that of all the women in her country definitely have a magical intrigue that drew me into them.
I definitely have to find a more comprehensive collection of the Arabian Nights stories though, since clearly pages does not capture them all and Andrew Lang is not what we would call a top fairytale scholar in reproducing the tales in a more traditional and complete manner.
This version from Wordsworth Classics consists of edited selected tales for children at pages. The really major difference is in presentation - the children get the stunning illustrations by H.
So I bought it. The last time I read two books simultaneously was Pushkin's wonderful "Eugene Onegin". This was because I couldn't decide This version from Wordsworth Classics consists of edited selected tales for children at pages.
This was because I couldn't decide between two differing translations. No regrets whatsoever. Which is only appropriate considering Scheherazade had to endure it with some anxiety whereas my endurance is savoured by pleasure.
Even so I hope I may be granted some share in her spirit perhaps. The music of Rimsky-Korsakoff's "Scheherazade" is certainly an immediate form of transportation!!!
This will be Fun. The stories are framed in the story of Scheherazade, who told the Sultan tales each night for nights to prevent him killing her.
The tales are sometimes tales within tales within tales within a tale which can get a little confusing if you aren't careful.
I understand some of the stories here were not in the original manuscript like Ali Baba, Sinbad and Aladdin but all stories are fun to read, fantastical in some sense, and they even contain lessons for life.
This is a wishy washy version of One Thousand and One Nights, the tales Scheherazade told to King Shahryar every night to stop him beheading her.
The introduction to the Arabian Nights claims that they have selected the best stories, taken out the boring bits and verse. Having read part way through the first volume of nights, I see that they have also taken out all the salacious details, while leaving in the violence and with the exception of a paragraph at the begin no reference to This is a wishy washy version of One Thousand and One Nights, the tales Scheherazade told to King Shahryar every night to stop him beheading her.

What is left is a bunch of well worn fairy stories- a top ten out of thousands. I am going back to the original - it might be a bit of a slog but it is funnier, sexier and more entertaining Another one from the 'I read it because it was free' category.
Probably not worth your time as the solution to most of the character's problems is literally magic!
The nights pretense and the elaborately nested stories holds for about a third of the book and is then simply abandoned.
It was nice to fill some of the gaps in my knowledge of eastern tales and gain some insight into the historical culture short version; wealth is everything but the occasional gem barely makes this worth Another one from the 'I read it because it was free' category.

Aug 23, Audrey rated it it was amazing. Short review, because these stories were wonderful. Centuries ago? All I know that it is containing OLD stories, and back then, no body knew a thing about racism, which is really, really wrong, but it was used in all parts of the world.
So, please, keep that in mind. Now, goodbye. It just annoyed me, you know? Here are like one hundred people saying that, but yeah, here is the truth.
Jun 19, Michelle rated it liked it. An interesting read. The Arabic text was first published in full at Calcutta Kolkata , 4 vol.
The source for most later translations, however, was the so-called Vulgate text, an Egyptian recension published at Bulaq , Cairo , in , and several times reprinted.
Meanwhile, French and English continuations, versions, or editions of Galland had added stories from oral and manuscript sources, collected, with others, in the Breslau edition, 5 vol.
Later translations followed the Bulaq text with varying fullness and accuracy. Print Cite. Lovecraft , Marcel Proust , A.
Byatt and Angela Carter. Various characters from this epic have themselves become cultural icons in Western culture, such as Aladdin , Sinbad and Ali Baba.
Part of its popularity may have sprung from improved standards of historical and geographical knowledge. The marvelous beings and events typical of fairy tales seem less incredible if they are set further "long ago" or farther "far away"; this process culminates in the fantasy world having little connection, if any, to actual times and places.
Several elements from Arabian mythology are now common in modern fantasy , such as genies , bahamuts , magic carpets , magic lamps, etc.
When L. Frank Baum proposed writing a modern fairy tale that banished stereotypical elements, he included the genie as well as the dwarf and the fairy as stereotypes to go.
In , the International Astronomical Union IAU began naming features on Saturn 's moon Enceladus after characters and places in Burton 's translation  because "its surface is so strange and mysterious that it was given the Arabian Nights as a name bank, linking fantasy landscape with a literary fantasy.
There is little evidence that the Nights was particularly treasured in the Arab world. It is rarely mentioned in lists of popular literature and few preth-century manuscripts of the collection exist.
According to Robert Irwin, "Even today, with the exception of certain writers and academics, the Nights is regarded with disdain in the Arabic world.
Its stories are regularly denounced as vulgar, improbable, childish and, above all, badly written. Idries Shah finds the Abjad numerical equivalent of the Arabic title, alf layla wa layla , in the Arabic phrase umm el quissa , meaning "mother of records.
On a more popular level, film and TV adaptations based on stories like Sinbad and Aladdin enjoyed long lasting popularity in Arabic speaking countries.
Although the first known translation into a European language only appeared in , it is possible that the Nights began exerting its influence on Western culture much earlier.
Knowledge of the work, direct or indirect, apparently spread beyond Spain. The modern fame of the Nights derives from the first known European translation by Antoine Galland , which appeared in According to Robert Irwin , Galland "played so large a part in discovering the tales, in popularizing them in Europe and in shaping what would come to be regarded as the canonical collection that, at some risk of hyperbole and paradox, he has been called the real author of the Nights.
This fashion began with the publication of Madame d'Aulnoy 's Histoire d'Hypolite in D'Aulnoy's book has a remarkably similar structure to the Nights , with the tales told by a female narrator.
Galland's version provoked a spate of pseudo-Oriental imitations. At the same time, some French writers began to parody the style and concoct far-fetched stories in superficially Oriental settings.
They often contained veiled allusions to contemporary French society. The most famous example is Voltaire 's Zadig , an attack on religious bigotry set against a vague pre-Islamic Middle Eastern background.
The Polish nobleman Jan Potocki 's novel Saragossa Manuscript begun owes a deep debt to the Nights with its Oriental flavour and labyrinthine series of embedded tales.
The work was included on a price-list of books on theology, history, and cartography, which was sent by the Scottish bookseller Andrew Millar then an apprentice to a Presbyterian minister.
This is illustrative of the title's widespread popularity and availability in the s. The Nights continued to be a favourite book of many British authors of the Romantic and Victorian eras.
According to A. Byatt , "In British Romantic poetry the Arabian Nights stood for the wonderful against the mundane, the imaginative against the prosaically and reductively rational.
Wordsworth and Tennyson also wrote about their childhood reading of the tales in their poetry. While the king is uncertain—except in the case of the elephants carrying the world on the back of the turtle—that these mysteries are real, they are actual modern events that occurred in various places during, or before, Poe's lifetime.
The story ends with the king in such disgust at the tale Scheherazade has just woven, that he has her executed the very next day.
Another important literary figure, the Irish poet W. Yeats was also fascinated by the Arabian Nights, when he wrote in his prose book, A Vision an autobiographical poem, titled The Gift of Harun Al-Rashid ,  in relation to his joint experiments with his wife Georgie Hyde-Lees , with Automatic writing.
The automatic writing, is a technique used by many occultists in order to discern messages from the subconscious mind or from other spiritual beings, when the hand moves a pencil or a pen, writing only on a simple sheet of paper and when the person's eyes are shut.
Also, the gifted and talented wife, is playing in Yeats's poem as "a gift" herself, given only allegedly by the caliph to the Christian and Byzantine philosopher Qusta Ibn Luqa , who acts in the poem as a personification of W.
In July he was asked by Louis Lambert, while in a tour in the United States, which six books satisfied him most. The list that he gave placed the Arabian Nights, secondary only to William Shakespeare's works.
The critic Robert Irwin singles out the two versions of The Thief of Baghdad version directed by Raoul Walsh; version produced by Alexander Korda and Pier Paolo Pasolini 's Il fiore delle Mille e una notte as ranking "high among the masterpieces of world cinema.
UPA , an American animation studio, produced an animated feature version of Arabian Nights , featuring the cartoon character Mr.
The animated feature film, One Thousand and One Arabian Nights , produced in Japan and directed by Osamu Tezuka and Eichii Yamamoto, featured psychedelic imagery and sounds, and erotic material intended for adults.
Shabnam Rezaei and Aly Jetha created, and the Vancouver-based Big Bad Boo Studios produced Nights , an animated television series for children, which launched on Teletoon and airs in 80 countries around the world, including Discovery Kids Asia.

The pool scene was also filmed here. When the king meets the first prince transformed into the form of a monkey, this scene was filmed at the golden gate of Hanuman Dhoka in Nepal.
Likewise, Prince Yunan's oriental palace was also shot at Hanuman Dhoka. Yunan's father is bathing in the sunken bath of the Sundari Chowk courtyard.
Shooting was complicated in Isfahan. Military guards threw Pasolini and the crew out because they brought donkeys onto the premises of Imam mosque and Pasolini had women singing for the scene.
This was explicitly prohibited and cost the production a few days delay. Most of the score was composed by Ennio Morricone and intentionally keeps away from traditional music unlike the first two films of the Trilogy of Life.
The music is symphonic. This was to separate it from reality and give it more of a dream-like quality. This was to contrast the poverty depicted on the screen with the richness of Mozart's music.
The original script written by Pasolini is much different than what appears in the final film. The set up and flashbacks are much different and more stories from the book are added.
Each part was to have a different frame story which would segue into even more stories in a more conventional framework than the continuous, rhapsodic and fluid form of the final script.
In the original prologue of the film, the story opens in Cairo with four boys masturbating to different stories they envision in their heads.
The stories of the two dervishes were to go in between the last scene. These stories are left out of the final film except for the ones with the Dunya frame narrative.
These stories Dunya and Tagi, Aziz and Aziza, Yunan and Shahziman are in the final film though much later and in different context.
In the intermezzo, four people of different faiths each believe they have killed a hunchback and tell the Sultan stories to calm his anger.
The Christian matchmaker, muslim chef, Jewish doctor and Chinese tailor each tell their story and avoid the death sentence. The next part was to have Pasolini appearing as himself to the young boys.
He kisses each boy, giving them a fragment of the story of Nur-ed-Din and Zummurrud each time. This entire section of the script was left out of the final film.
The most famous shot of the film, where Aziz shoots an arrow laden with a dildo into the vagina of Budur is not in this script.
It would probably rightfully get an NC if released today in America, and got an X when released in The dreaded 'thing' of a man is revealed about as often as a cut-away to a master shot of a building.
Everything, in fact, is filmed frankly, without the style that tip-toes around the starkness of two people embraced and naked.
But it's also not pornographic either; if anything Pasolini perhaps doesn't direct far enough with the sex, as one body just lays still on top of another.
There's a specific intent to dealing with sexuality in this world that respects lust and desire from the original text without making it blatant- only in one big instance, involving the fate of the man from the cousin story the one with Aziz I think revels in the horror of sex that was delved tenfold in Salo.
Add to this the exquisite score from Ennio Morricone, who enriches any scene his score pops up, as a mandolin strings away and the strings rise with just a hint of the sentimental.
Without Morricone, in fact, it might not be as emotional a film, when need be. And lest not forget Arabian Nights can be strangely comical, where Pasolini throws it back at the audience that he knows he's going rightfully into the surreal.
Like with the story of the Demon and the fate of a man transformed as a chimpanzee, or the vision with the lion, or even the dialog in the pool with the three girls and the man, which is humorous while keeping a tongue-in-cheek.
And there's even some good jokes to come out of the obvious step of having Zummurrud as the 'King' when it's clear as day from the Italian dubbing that he's the 'she', so to speak, as it stretches out into a final scene where lovers are united and things are as they should be, however much the director is thumbing his nose at power and sex and the dealings of the heart with organs.
Arabian Nights probably couldn't be made today, but could anyone else but Pasolini make it anyway? There's daring in this film, and through the exotic exteriors and sets we see a filmmaker working along like there's nothing else to stop him, for better or worse.
This time for the better. No need to waste time endlessly browsing—here's the entire lineup of new movies and TV shows streaming on Netflix this month.
See the full list. Even though he dealt with danger on every voyage, Sinbad continued to sail, lured by the thrill and excitement of the sea.
Finally, after seven voyages, he decided to settle down with his wealth. He opens it to release a dangerous genie, who has been trapped for hundreds of years and had decided to kill the man who rescues him.
The fisherman tricks the genie into returning to the jar, and then tells him the story of "The Vizier and the Sage Duban ," detailed below.
After the story, the genie promises to reward the fisherman, and indeed shows him a magic lake full of strange fish.
The fisherman sells the fish to the sultan, who explores the area of the lake to meet a sad prince who had been turned half to stone.
He helps the prince, and then rewards everyone involved. Yunan has Duban executed on that suspicion, and Duban gifts him a magic book before he dies.Keep track of everything you watch; tell your friends. For, in reality, these tales are lessons about humanity. He helps the Gruppe I, and then rewards everyone involved.
