  Arabian Nights Its Origins and Legacy - MiddleEastUK.com: Mosaic
The Thousand and One Nights (alf layla wa layla) or The Arabian Nights, as they came to be known, owes its origins to three distinct cultures and storytelling traditions: that of India, Persia and the Arab world.
Although many scholars deny its literary importance, The Arabian Nights can be viewed as a valuable source of Middle Eastern social history, being composed of the most extensive and intimate recordings of the medieval Islamic period.
The success of The Arabian Nights stories over many other forgotten folk tales may be due to their blend of popular themes; heroic and romantic adventures are littered with mystery, old wisdom and exciting struggles between good and evil.

This practice continues for some time, until the vizier's clever daughter Shahrazad (meaning "city-born" in Persian; the name is perhaps better-known in English as "Scheherazade" or "Shahrastini") forms a plan and volunteers to become Shahryar's next wife.
Every night after their marriage, she spends hours telling him stories, each time stopping at dawn with a cliff-hanger, so the king will commute the execution out of a desire to hear the rest of the tale.

Shahrazad, in the Persian tradition, is the mother-in-law of Ahasuerus, who in the Biblical story also beguiles his nights by having tales read to him; his wives also hold office only for one night, until Esther obtains a more secure tenure.
Chauvin, in a special treatise on the Egyptian recension of "One Thousand and One Nights" (Brussels, 1899), has suggested that these Jewish tales and others were introduced by one of the last redactors, a converted Jew, probably the author of the "Story of a Man of Jerusalem," sometimes attributed to Abraham, son of Maimonides.
The following are the tales of the "Arabian Nights" that appear from several investigations to be from Jewish sources.

The Arabian Nights is hugely various, like the lands it came from, and it is jam-packed with spiritual as well as earthly values.
In the Arabic stories of the Nights, as opposed to the Burton translation, the issue of race is not that of modern racism.
So, although the Nights describe a world that includes slavery and some negative images about fls, these need to be examined in the context of the Nights, not as if they were expressions of modern western values, while no such explanation is adequate for the Burton translation.

 Guardian Unlimited | Arts features | Why composers are seduced by the Arabian Nights
Many for whom The Arabian Nights (the more familiar English title) were the stuff of childhood fantasy have returned to the collection, in whole or in part, as adults, only to find their preoccupations once more reflected in its contents.
Scheherazade's ruse - to "beguile the night" with a tale that always breaks off before its climax so that Shahriyar will let her live another day in order to discover its ending - is consequently aimed at halting the actions of a misogynistic psychopath.
The first western translations of The Thousand and One Nights date from the early 18th century, and are consequently contemporaneous with the growth of imperialist and colonialist ideology.

The Arabian Nights reverses the gruelling horror of Salo: it is an Edemic space, where paradisal bodies lead lives of pure bliss or pure sorrow - purity, not absolute mirth is the quintessence of Pasolini's cinematic discourse.
The body's are paradisal precisely because they are unabashedly imperfect: in the Arabian Nights, Pasolini exorcises the pretentious artificiality of modern image as much as he creates a fresh new narrative medium by appealing back to the sources.

 The Arabian Nights
The Arabian Nights (Arabic: alf laila walaila (“the thousand and one nights”)) is the most famous literary product of a classical Islamic civilization that was formed through a merging of Arabic culture (especially religion) and “the great imperial traditions of the eastern Mediterranean and the Persian empire of the Sassanians” (Mack 1351).
The Arabian Nights were introduced to Europe by Antoine Galland in 1704-17; the earliest English version, translated from Galland’s French rather than from Arabic, came almost immediately (appeared 1706-08).
During the 18th century, "Sindbad," "Aladdin," and "Ali Baba" were published in chapbook editions; plots from these stories also became stock elements in English Pantomime, so that by the middle of the century most English children would have been fairly familiar with these particular tales.

There is a parallel in so far as the treasures of this New World, the world of the Arabian Nights, since their discovery, have become the property also of the West—where these treasures, by the way, were more highly appreciated than in the East.
From the dedication of Galland's translation of the Nights and from his correspondence, the circumstances of the discovery of the Nights are relatively well known.
The Galland MS and other old MSS of the Nights, the importance of which had been established by Zotenberg, were then the object of the research of Duncan Macdonald.

Arabian Nights is just one of the many issued, and it is a welcome score to have on disc.
The problem with the disc overall is the disjointedness of some of the music here, making a case that perhaps a solid 45 minute album would have been better, or perhaps shorter cues being condensed into longer suites (Trevor Jones’ MERLIN).
Influences from two other recent Arabian flavored scores (The Mummy, The Prince of Egypt) are also heard in some cues.
