The Thousand and One Nights was reborn into an alien environment in 1704, its signs being received in a radically different way from their original meanings. Works of literature change as people and cultures who read them change. This study explores the Nights with reference to this view of literature.

This volume discusses The Thousand and One Nights' themes of space and travel showing how they are used not only as a setting in which the story unfolds, but also as the dynamic force which propels the heroes and the story to the final dénouement. These events often symbolize a process of transformation, in which the hero has to search for his destined role or strive to attain the object of his desire. In this way, themes of travel are the narrative backbone of stories of various genres including love, religion, magic and adventure. This book not only gives a fresh approach to many stories of the collection, but also proposes new insights in the nature of The Thousand and one Nights as a self-reflexive narrative and is essential reading for scholars of Arabic literature.

Moskau: Ein vierjähriger Junge erwacht in einer kalten leeren Wohnung. Er wartet auf den Onkel, doch der kommt nicht nach Hause. Auch seine Mutter nicht, deren Ermahnungen er im Ohr hat. Der Junge hat Angst vor dem Onkel, der ihm verboten hat, sein Zimmer zu verlassen. Doch er ist hungrig, faßt Mut und verläßt die Wohnung. Der Junge, Romochka, ist allein. Es schneit, die Menschen beachten ihn nicht, nur ein Hund nähert sich ihm, aggressiv, dann neugierig. Romochka folgt dem Hund, und der Hund – die Hündin – gestattet ihm zu folgen. Hin zu ihrer Höhle in einem verlassenen Gebäude. Zu seiner neuen Familie. Romochkas Leben als Hund beginnt. „Dog Boy befasst sich intensiv mit der Frage, was das Menschsein ausmacht, wie wir zu Menschen werden und wie wir es schaffen, an unserer Menschlichkeit, wenn wir sie einmal besitzen, festzuhalten.“ Donna Leon

In der Traurigen Stadt im Lande Alifbay lebt der kleine Harun. Doch Harun hat Glück, denn sein Vater ist der allseits beliebte Geschichtenerzähler Raschid. Wenn er erzählt, dann vergessen die Menschen für einen Moment ihre Traurigkeit und erfreuen sich an seinen schier unerschöpflichen Märchen über schöne Prinzessinnen, schnauzbärtige Gangster und tollkühne Helden. Doch eines Tages wird Raschid von seiner Frau verlassen – und verstummt urplötzlich. Um seinen Vater von dieser Sprachlosigkeit zu befreien, begibt sich Harun auf eine abenteuerliche Reise zum Meer der Geschichten, zur Quelle des Erzählwassers.
