Notes

  • Epigraph:

    Motto: But when it was midnight Scheherazade awoke and signalled to her sister Dunyazad who sat up and said, 'Oh my sister recite to us some new story, delightsome and delectable, wherewith to while away the waking hours of our latter night.' 'With joy and goodly glee,' answered Scheherazade, 'if this pious and auspicious King permit me.' 'Tell on,' quoth the King who chanced to be sleepless and restless and therefore was pleased with the prospect of hearing her story. So Scheherazade rejoiced; and thus, on the first night of the Thousand Nights and a Night, she began her recitations.

    from Richard F. Burton, The Arabian Nights
