The wonderful tales of 'The Arabian Nights' have been
entertaining young people for a couple of centuries now in the West. Who was
the first European translator of 'The Arabian Nights'?
- Richard Burton
- T. H. Lawrence
- Arthur Waley
- Galland's version of these tales was rather different than what he had
discovered in Arabic: he made a number of embellishments and in fact
greatly added to the tales. His first edition came out in 1704 in
French, and soon gained widespread popularity. Ironically, 'The Arabian
Nights' (also called: The 1001 Nights) was a relatively obscure set of
stories in the Arab world, and was certainly not considered 'great
literature'. In fact, these tales were originally translated into Arabic
from the Persian, so they are practically not Arabian at all!
