Reviews of The Arabian Nights: A Companion

Overall customer rating: 5.000
Joel S

Wonderful Scholarly/Popular Bool

by Joel S on Feb 23, 2012

This book illuminates the Thousand and One Nights on many levels and remains quite readable while doing it. It treats the book and the reader and the traditional roots of the Alf Laylah seriously and respectfully. It brings the reader out of the usual fairy-tale misunderstanding of The Arabian Nights into a mature and informed view of a literary treasure chest of enjoyable tales.
