Stories from the Arabian Nights

Laurence HOUSMAN (1865 - 1959)

Scheherazadè, the heroine of the Thousand and one Nights, ranks among the great story-tellers of the world but the great quantity of her stories were meant to stave off her death and so we can expect a few to be not of the best quality. The six stories chosen here to be retold by Laurence Housman however, are some of the very best to be had among all of them. They are beautifully written and deserve to be 'told' by readers who enjoy telling stories. - Summary by Phil Chenevert
