Sheherazade Through the Looking Glass: The Metamorphosis of the Thousand and One Nights

Voorkant
Psychology Press, 1999 - 170 pagina's
The Thousand and One Nights was reborn into an alien environment in 1704, its signs being received in a radically different way from their original meanings. Works of literature change as people and cultures who read them change. This study explores the Nights with reference to this view of literature.
