Homework Help: English- Arabian/1001 Nights

Posted by Michael on Friday, July 11, 2014 at 3:45pm.

1) What is the main purpose for Shahryar and Shahzaman’s journey together?

To find someone whose suffering is greater than their own
To escape the revolt Shahryar caused by executing most of the single women in his land
To rekindle their brotherly love, which had disappeared due to inheritance problems and the distance between their territories

2)What lesson is learned in the tale told by the man traveling with two dogs?

Brothers cannot be trusted and will attempt to seduce each other’s wives.
Show compassion for those who have wronged you.
Trust your wife to handle your finances and familial relations.

3) The opening line of The Thousand and One Nights, “It is related—but God knows and sees best what lies hidden in the accounts of bygone peoples and times,” implies what about this work?

It is based on a series of orally transmitted tales.
It should be taken literally, since ancient peoples were divinely inspired.
It should be taken metaphorically, since the truth is apparent to God alone.


Thanks in advance
