Overall these tales are extremely similar to your classic western tales: plucky paupers rising above their station, marrying princesses, battling giants, dodging unlucky prophesies, building castles in the air.
They're certainly interesting from the perspective of a fairy tale enthusiast such as myself, but the roots are identical to your classic Brothers Grimm, so the resultant foliage is strikingly similar--there aren't many surprises in store for a western audience.
If you want to get into really foreign-feeling stories, you have to go to Australia, the Americas, Japan, Russia, or even Africa.
Women's roles in fairy tales are often So that's it! If you're already interested, they're lovely if occasionally cringe-worthy stories, but rather much like anything you've heard or read before: sneaky viziers, clever street urchins, magic flying horses, evil black people, rape-worthy damsels All the best and worst that Eurasian folklore has to offer.

The fact that British actor Toby Stephens narrates this was definitely a nudge to check out this audiobook from my trusty library.
Of course, I appreciate the Arabian Nights, so that's another plus. Overall, I was a tad disappointed with this audiobook. I enjoyed Ali Baba, Aladdin and the frame story about Scheherazade, but I was bored with the seven tales of Sinbad, and the tale about the greedy man who ended up becoming blind.
They were too monotonous. I felt my mind wandering as I listened and The fact that British actor Toby Stephens narrates this was definitely a nudge to check out this audiobook from my trusty library.
I felt my mind wandering as I listened and did my Wii Fit exercises. I wish they had picked different stories besides these two for the collection, honestly.
And I could have done with more narration about Scheherazade herself as well. At least I had Toby's lovely voice to narrate for me. Maybe a pet peeve for some, but all the voices sounded British, so it didn't feel as 'atmospheric' to me.
This will be a short review because it's kind of a ho-hum read for me. Nothing spectacular or really awful about it. Although I did like that they included Rimsky-Korsakov's Scheherazade within the production.
I love that music! I plan to read the huge, unexpurgated version of Arabian Nights someday before I die. You can imagine these tales told orally by skillful speakers.
There are stories within stories within stories, an interesting device. It's like "Inception," where you go down the dream layers and then have to return upwards, and then you have to try and remember the upper layers after time away from them.
There are lots of kings and rulers and beautiful princesses and handsome princes. Very few good-looking people turn out to be jerks.
There is magic and magical creatures, but not in every story. It's a great look at human imagination over the generations.
These are the main lessons from these tales: Traits such as industry, wisdom, graciousness, and generosity are admired. Greed, dishonesty, and laziness are scorned.
Wealth is admired so long as you are generous with it. A good story may save your life. A good sob story will make people feel sorry for you and give you money.
Everyone eventually gets what they deserve. Punishments are harsh, so beware! It is such a classic book. We joke about how most of the stories have similar theme.
But life in general has a pattern, doesn't it? Ah, look at me all philosophical! If you are someone who likes to weave tales or to put up excuses for doing a task, then take a bow.
You are a Scheherazade. I give it to Scheherazade. Telling stories that fascinate and distract a Sultan who kills a new wife every night is no child's play.
And so emerges the theme of the Thousand and One Nights or Tales from the Arabian Nights: a story with an embedded story, with another story, and another one, and another, yet another I need to do more research on the provenance of these If you are someone who likes to weave tales or to put up excuses for doing a task, then take a bow.
Though they are enthralling to read, I have a hunch that the stories collated here by the Scottish writer Andrew Lang is a sanitized version, as one can detect hints of more gruesome violence and even erotica.
Merchants, sultans, kings, princes and princesses, beautiful slaves, genii, magicians, dervishes, the Tales from the Arabian Nights are a plethora of characters, real and imagined.
But where is the story of Ali Baba? That the Tales from the Arabian Nights are products of the medieval Islamic Arab, Persian, and Indian civilizations is an irony, as the thugs and genocidal bandits of the so-called Islamic State who are killing, pillaging, and raping religious minorities and even their fellow Muslims are a far cry from the medieval Islamic civilizations that they claim to want to reestablish.
Shame on them. God will do justice to those mindless barbarians. Shelves: ebooks. When I read the book "Children of the Lamp, The Curse of Akhenaten" , I was curious with the story of Arabian Nights as it was mentioned in the book and encouraged to read.
I now understood why. Part of the story of the Children of the Lamp was taken from the Arabian Nights tale.
I soon immersed myself in the curious magical world of Arabian Nights and indeed, it was cleverly done.
I liked the premise these stories were weaved as a collection of short tales. And I wonder why it got a poor review.
Moreover, it reminded me the story of Joseph the Dreamer in the bible, The story of the Ass, and Jonas' story too.

Though each collection features different stories, they are all centered around the frame story of the sultan Shahrayar and his wife, Scheherazade.
After finding out that his first wife is unfaithful, Shahrayar kills her and swears to marry a different woman each night before killing her the following morning to prevent further betrayal.
Scheherazade, his vizier's daughter, concocts a plan to end this pattern. She marries Shahrayar, and then begins to tell him a story that night. However, she stops the story in the middle, so that he will be excited to hear the rest the following night.
The next evening, she finishes that story and then begins another, following the same pattern for 1, nights, until Shahrayar has a change of heart.
The stories she tells comprise the collection. However, Aladdin outsmarts him, keeping the lamp for himself. 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.

Of note is that this is the only film of the trilogy to not be overtly critical of religion. Whereas the previous two were highly critical of the church and clergy, Islam plays very little into this film though in a deleted scene, Nur-ed-Din's father scolds him for drinking which is prohibited in the Koran.
Allah's name is invoked twice in the entire film and none of the characters are seen going to mosque or performing any religious acts of any kind.
The characters are very irreligious and the films emphasis on folk superstitions such as ifrits and magic lends emphasis to this.
Open sexuality is a very important topic in this film and this is displayed in the Sium story that Zummurrud tells near the beginning.
The poet leaves a naked boy and girl alone to see which of the two is more smitten with the other.
Both are taken with one another and there is no clear winner. This shows what follows in the movie, that sexuality is for both genders and all orientations.
Desire will be felt equally by both genders and without guilt. Homosexuality is also depicted in this film in a much more favorable light than in the previous two films.
The poet Sium takes three boys to his tent early in the film and in the muslim society which is very segregated by gender, homoeroticism thrives throughout.
The poet Sium can even be seen as a stand-in for Pasolini himself, who frequently searched for young men along the Ostia in Rome. This is in much stark contrast to the previous film The Canterbury Tales which includes an elaborate scene of a homosexual being burned alive at the stake while the clergy look on smiling.
The film relies much more heavily on flashbacks and stories within stories than the previous two stories. Whereas in the other films, Pasolini himself serves as the one to bind the stories all together a disciple of Giotto and Geoffrey Chaucer respectively there is no equivalent character here.
Pasolini does not act in this film and the stories are tied together with the Nur-ed-Din frame story and with characters having flashbacks and reading stories to one another.
The film's use of flashbacks was likely influenced by Wojciech Has 's film The Saragossa Manuscript which at one point, has eight flashbacks-within-flashbacks.
The stories are all taken from the Nights and they stay largely true to the source material, though some of the context is changed and the endings of some stories changed around.
The two dervishes who tell their story to the ladies of Baghdad are changed to holy monks who work as painters here. The second dervish's story also ends here with the girl dying as she transforms the dervish back while in the original, she has a battle with the ifrit.
This was likely changed to put a quick end to the story and to save time and resources. The third dervish's story is also changed in some parts.
Though the names of its chief characters are Iranian, the frame story is probably Indian, and the largest proportion of names is Arabic.
The first known reference to the Nights is a 9th-century fragment. By the 20th century, Western scholars had agreed that the Nights is a composite work consisting of popular stories originally transmitted orally and developed during several centuries, with material added somewhat haphazardly at different periods and places.
Several layers in the work, including one originating in Baghdad and one larger and later, written in Egypt, were distinguished in by August Müller.
Most of the tales best known in the West—primarily those of Aladdin, Ali Baba, and Sindbad—were much later additions to the original corpus.
