I read these stories as a boy of ten, in a book borrowed from my father's collection called "The Harvard Classics". They filled my imagination then as they still do with pictures of a magical world of brave princes and beautiful princesses, Jinn, and fairies, magicians and evil socerers, facing dangers with courage and resolution, winning great rewards for their patience and courtly manners, their bravery and their honorable action.
So many of our great stories and our chivalric traditions flow from this stream. The stories live on because they hold us today as they did a thousand or more years ago at their origins.
Very entertaining. Interestingly, I didn't know any of the stories. Should be a TV series.
