Book summary

Adapted from Sir Richard F. Burton's lavish unexpurgated translation, this volume illuminates the sensual mystery and lushness of the original Arabic tales. It includes a wide variety of tales--from magic fairy tales to torrid erotic tales--that reveal a great deal about what life was like in the Middle East during the Medieval period.

* The companion volume to the popular Signet Classic edition of Arabian Nights (8/91), also edited by Jack Zipes

* Jack Zipes is the author of several books of fairy tales and is the editor of the Signet Classic edition of The Complete Fairy Tales Of Oscar Wilde (5/96)

* These volumes offer the uncensored, erotic versions of the tales, not the rewritten fairy tales for children [via]
