More About The Arabian Nights by Malcolm C. Lyons; Ursula Lyons; Robert Irwin
 
 
 
Overview
The most significant translation in one hundred years of one of the greatest works of world literature

From Ali Baba and the forty thieves to the voyages of Sinbad, the stories of The Arabian Nights are timeless and unforgettable. Published here in three volumes, this magnificent new edition brings these tales to life for modern readers in the first complete English translation since Richard Burton s of the 1880s.
Every night for three years the vengeful King Shahriyar sleeps with a different virgin, and the next morning puts her to death. To end this brutal pattern, the vizier's daughter, Shahrazad, begins to tell the king enchanting tales of mystical lands peopled with princes and hunchbacks, of the Angel of Death and magical spirits, and of jinnis trapped in rings and in lamps a sequence of stories that will last 1,001 nights, and that will save her own life."
