A thousand and one nights - literal translation?

Postby Rivaldo » 2014-07-28, 4:56

Hi,

I kindly ask for a suggestion of a translation of the "A thousand and one nights" that would be the more close to the original arabic possible. So I could print both and use it as a way to practice reading, as I love those stories.

I found many english translations online(I can read spanish and french too if needed), for example at this site:
http://www.wollamshram.ca/1001/index.htm

I would like to ask which would be a translation the most close to the original for me. Besides that, I would have to find a arabic text which would be related to the translation used, once I guess there are many arabic version of this text.
This second part is quite hard for me to do cause I don't know enough arabic in order to recognize which would be the right version.

So, what I'm asking is a suggestion of a literal translation and the indication of what would be the arabic version related to it. Thanks a lot if someone can help me, and I'm sure this will help eventually other people that also like those stories.

Regards.

Rivaldo

The best match I could find till now is between those versions:

http://ar.wikisource.org/wiki/%D8%A3%D9 ... 9%88%D9%84

http://www.wollamshram.ca/1001/Payne/tnon/tnon01.htm

Still, they don't match exactly and for an beginner in arabic it becomes difficult. (It doesn't seem that the translation is not literal, but that it was made upon another arabic version)

If anyone knows other resources specially for the arabic version (which is more difficult for me to look for) it would help a lot.

Regards.
