The book of Arabian Nights has become a synonym for the fabulous and the exotic. Every child is familiar with the stories of Aladdin, Sinbad the Sailor and Ali Baba. Yet very few people have a clear idea of when the book was written or what exactly it is. Far from being children´s stories, The Arabian Nights contains hundreds of narratives of all kinds -fables, epics, erotica, debates, fairy tales, political allegories, mystical anecdotes and comedies. It is a labyrinth of stories and of stories within stories.
