The Arabian Nights translated by Richard Francis BurtonIt is often known in English as the Arabian Nights , from the first English-language edition c. The work was collected over many centuries by various authors, translators, and scholars across West, Central, and South Asia and North Africa. Some tales themselves trace their roots back to ancient and medieval Arabic , Persian , Indian , Greek , Jewish and Turkish  folklore and literature. A Thousand Tales , which in turn relied partly on Indian elements. The stories proceed from this original tale; some are framed within other tales, while others are self-contained. Some editions contain only a few hundred nights, while others include 1, or more. The bulk of the text is in prose , although verse is occasionally used for songs and riddles and to express heightened emotion.
