There once was a rather insecure King of Persia, named Shahryar who was so convinced of his wife's infidelity, he had her executed. So upset by the episode was he, Shahryar proclaimed that all women were infidels. Henceforth upon each new day, the king would marry a new virgin and have her executed the following morn. After some time, young virgins were becoming scarce. One eventful day, Shahryar married a beautiful young bride named Scheherazade who possessed a particular talent which intrigued him. After making love to him, she asked if he wished to hear a story. He sat upon his royal bed whilst she wove a tale of fantastic depth. She did not, however, finish the story that night, but saved its ending for the next day. Greatly anticipating the dramatic finale' the king postponed the death of his new bride until he could hear the tale's exciting conclusion. On the second night, as her first story came to its end, Scheherazade began weaving an ever more intoxicating tale, casting a spell of sorts upon the king. Her narrations carried on for many nights. While in many cases Scheherazade would cut a story short with the hero in danger of losing his life or teetering upon some precipice of intrigue, she would occasionally stop her narration in the middle of an exposition of abstract philosophical principles or complex points of Islamic philosophy. She utilized numerous devices in curtailing her evening's tale; in each case recognizing that with the king's curiosity piqued, she had just bought herself another day of life. Scheherazade described exotic lands in legendary places, love stories, comedies, poems and erotic fables. Her tales included genies, and monsters, magicians and figures from history.
Sometimes a character in Scheherazade's tale would begin telling other characters a story of his own, and that story might have another one told within it, resulting in a richly-layered narrative texture that astounded the king for 1001 nights, at which point, Shahryar decided to spare her life and keep her as his Queen. And so lived Scheherazade!
