The collection, or at least certain stories drawn from it (or purporting to be drawn from it) became widely known in the West during the nineteenth century, after it was translated - first into French and then English and other European languages. At this time it acquired the English name The Arabian Nights Entertainment or simply Arabian Nights/5(3).

Dickson identifies the nineteenth century as the beginning of the large-scale absorption of the Arabian Nights into British literature and culture. She explores how this period used the stories as a means of articulating its own experiences of a rapidly changing environment.

The Arabian Nights - stories told by Queen Shahrazad over a thousand and one nights, to beguile the Sultan into deferring her execution - first began to appear in the West in the early 18th century, firing in the European imagination an appetite for the mysterious and exotic which has never left ted over centuries from Persia and Arabia and India, and ranging from vivacious erotica /5(26).

For more than five hundred years the Arabian classic Tales of a Thousand and One Nights has fascinated readers all over the world. Early in this century the popular novelist Kate Douglas Wiggin and her sister, Nora Smith, selected and edited twelve favorite tales from the collection, including the stories of Ali Baba and the forty thieves, Aladdin and his wonderful lamp,/5.

Alf layla wa layla (known in English as A Thousand and One Nights or The Arabian Nights) changed the world on a scale unrivalled by any other literary text.

It’s based on Calcutta II — the Arabian edition printed in India in early 19th century.

This has to be the most beautiful Nights book — hardcover, elegantly designed with fine paper quality. It weighs on your wallet, but it’s worth every penny. Reading the entire book (3 volumes) is quite a feat, but that shouldn’t be an issue.

By the second half of the nineteenth century, theatrical adaptations of the Arabian Nights had veered once and for all into the land of pantomime and extravaganza, acquiring titles like Aladdin and His Wonderful Lamp; or, Harlequin the Wicked Wizard and the Forty Thieves in and Aladdin; or, The Naughty Young Scamp Who Ran Off with the Lamp.

The Arabian Nights commands a place in world literature unrivaled by any other fictional work of "Oriental" provenance. Bringing together Indian, Iranian, and Arabic tradition, this collection of tales became popular in the Western world during the eighteenth century and has since exerted a profound influence on theater, opera, music, painting, architecture, and literature.3/5(1).
