Arthur Ransome is best known for his ‘Swallows and Amazons’ series of children’s books. This is the only example of his fiction in the public domain. These stories are all from Russian folklore, some comparatively well-known, others less so. Ransome spent some years in Russia as a newspaper correspondent fir the ‘Daily News’ and the ‘Manchester Guardian’ and was peripherally involved in the revolution. In the late twenties he married Evgenia Shvelpina, Trotsky’s secretary, retired from newspapers and started writing his children’s books.
Afin de ne plus être décu par les femmes, le sultan Schahriar décide d’épouser une jeune fille chaque jour et de la faire mourir dès le lendemain.

Joignons-nous à Dinarzade et Schahriar. 'Ecoutons ses récits passionants, nuit après nuit, ap...

The Scotchman turned round, and peered at him from under his bushy eye...
