1001 Arabian Nights (Pinyin)

One Thousand and One Nights is a collection of Middle Eastern and South Asian stories and folk tales compiled in Arabic during the Islamic Golden Age. It is often known in English as the Arabian Nights, from the first English language edition (1706), which rendered the title as The Arabian Nights' Entertainment.

The work as we have it was collected over many centuries by various authors, translators and scholars across the Middle East, Central Asia and North Africa. The tales themselves trace their roots back to ancient and medieval Arabic, Persian, Indian, Turkish, Egyptian and Mesopotamian folklore and literature. In particular, many tales were originally folk stories from the Caliphate era, while others, especially the frame story, are most probably drawn from the Pahlavi Persian work which in turn relied partly on Indian elements.

《一千零一夜》又名《天方夜谭》是一部具有世界影阿拉伯民间故事集。它不是历史上某一时期某个作家的作品,而是一部由民间艺人、文人学士在几百年的时间里收集加工而成的集体杰作,汇集了古代近东、中亚和附近其他地区众多民族的神话传说和寓言故事。

 

《一千零一夜》以其引人入胜的情节、奇妙的想象、通俗的语言和鲜明的阿拉伯特色吸引了一代又一代读者,是世界文学史上最具生命力、最负盛名、拥有最多读者的作品之一。

它汇集了古代近东、中亚和其他地区诸民族的神话传说和寓言故事,其产生、发展、定型经历了阿拉伯社会的不同时期。

 

在 《一千零一夜》中,有阿拉伯的国王、波斯的公主、勇敢的水手、聪明的强盗以及飞毯、飞马、一搓即有巨人奴仆出现的神灯、神戒指、取之不尽的食物的宝鞍 袋……当这些人物与道具和主人公的命运结合在一起时,便组成了一个个光怪陆离、美妙动人的故事。这些故事都以现实生活为基础,表现了人民群众对真善美的渴 望,对美好幸福生活的追求,以及商人们在早期奋斗过程中蓬勃向上、奋发进取的精神。

 

 

本书语言朴实,情节逼真,故事环环相扣,曾被高尔基称做民间文学史上“一座最壮丽的纪念碑”,对世界文学产生过重大影响。为了能让孩子们较早接触到这部世 界名著,我们在保留原著特点的情况下,精心选取其中的著名篇章,进行更为合理的编排,并绘制精美的插图,以图文并茂的形式呈现在小读者的面前。擦一擦阿拉丁神灯,它就能满足你的任何愿望;大喊一声“芝麻开门”,就能打开强盗藏宝的洞门……
