This is a compilation drawn largely from Burton's footnotes to his edition of "The Arabian Nights", and sets a high standard for any editor's footnotes to follow. Burton was capable of following any line of enquiry to the point of physical danger, and this is a set of gems snatched from such experiences. While not quite so valuable as reading the larger work, and discovering the notes "in situ" the collection is obviously easier to check for scholarly reference.

Part of me is glad that I read [b:Tales from the Arabian Nights|28587676|Tales from the Arabian Nights|Donna Jo Napoli|https://i.gr-assets.com/images/S/compressed.photo.goodreads.com/books/1475873100l/28587676._SX50_.jpg|48754894] first, because that gave me a starting point for reading this. Initially, I was more neutral about The Arabian Nights, neither interested nor disinterested. However, after reading the two versions, even more so after this version, I have a better appreciation for these tales.

EL JARDÍN DE LAS ROSAS

Sandi es uno de los poetas más
famosos y populares de Persia. Nació
en Shirzi en 1175, hijo de un pequeño
dlignatario de la corte, Estudió en
Bagdad, donde entró en contacto con
los más grandes maestros sufíes, y el
mismo llegó a ser un maestro reconocido.
Viajero incansable, visitó lugares
tan alejados de su país natal como
Marruecos y la India, Abisinia, la
China y Turquía.

El Jardín de Rosas, o Gulistán, es quizá
la obra más conocida de Saadi, y ya en
vida de éste se convirtió en un verdadero manual
de poesía, de conducta y de moral, pues
en su libro las enseñanzas sufíes, a menudo
presentadas a través de imágenes alegóricas,
se ponen al alcance de todos los lectores.

El Jardín de Rosas obra típicamente oriental,
proporciona, en efecto, una lectura muy
placentera en la que los vivaces relatos
y anécdotas alternan con las máximas y
consejos de Saadi, delicioso poeta y
profundo conocedor del alma humana.
