1001 Nights


I've just pre-ordered Marina Warner's book, Stranger Magic. This is a book I've been quite excited about for some time. I heard Warner read from her manuscript at the Fairy Tale After Angela Carter Conference a couple of years ago and the more I research fairy tale, the more I find myself running into the 1001 Nights. So I finally bit the bullet and bought myself a proper edition of the tales while I was preordering Stranger Magic.

Don't be surprised if they pop up on next year's Fairy Tale Traditions curriculum.
