Sultan Schahriar, disappointed by a first adulterous woman, decided to marry the young girls of his kingdom one after the other, to execute them the day after the wedding night. But Scheherazade, by telling him stories that never end, will force him to postpone the death sentence again and again. The reader of A Thousand and One Nights therefore finds himself in the same position as this passionate despot, charmed by the beautiful storyteller ... who subsequently became one of the great myths of literature.
The other tales in this collection: “History of the fisherman”, “History of the Greek king and the doctor Douban”, “History of the husband and the parrot”, “History of the punished vizier”.
