These are the tales that saved the life of Shahrazad, whose husband, the king, executed each of his wives after a single night of marriage. Beginning an enchanting story each evening, Shahrazad always withheld the ending: a thousand and one nights later, her life was spared forever. Full of mischief, valor, ribaldry, and romance, The Arabian Nights has enthralled readers for centuries. This volume contains the most famous and representative stories from Sir Richard F. Burton's multi volume translation, and, unlike many editions, is complete unexpurgated. These tales, including 'Aladdin or the Wonderful Lamp', 'Sinbad the Sailor', and 'Ali Baba and the Forty Thieves', have entered into the popular imagination. This edition of The Arabian Nights brings together the magical translation of Sir Richard Burton and the art of William Harvey. He was Thomas Bewick's most famous pupil and his evocative black and white woodcuts are complemented by the delightful engravings of the renowned brothers Thomas Dalziel and Edward Dalziel who were strongly influenced by Sir John Gilbert, and who regarded their illustrations for The Arabian Nights as their finest work.… (més)

The "first night" was a bit of a slog to get through, but it provided all the story set-up, so that's forgivable. The first volume has a good mixture of comedy, adventure, and drama. Much of the comedy is farcical and would lend itself well to a visual performance. The adventure is more or less middling at this point, but the book hasn't yet gotten to its most famous tales of adventure (Ali Baba, Sinbad, etc). The drama is, of course, dramatic, and usual winds up with a humorous or astounding ending. I could do without all the poetry, but what are you gonna do about it? Not like I can complain to the author! ( )
