Second set

Molly's picture

 For the second set of tales in Arabian Nights, I read "The Story of the Greek King and the Physician Douban," "The Story of the Young King of the Black Isles," and "The Story of the Husband and the Parrot," all still in the ELF translation.  To be completely honest, I was still not thrilled.  I had the same likes and dislikes that I spoke about in the last post.  I thought the transitions/some phrasing and stuff in the stories was clever, but on the whole, I didn't really like them.  I like to read things that I can get more invested in, and since the stories in Arabian Nights are so anonymous and legend-esque, they're not really for me.
