Description -

New Arabian Nights by Robert Louis Stevenson, first published in 1882, is a collection of short stories previously published in magazines between 1877 and 1880. The collection contains Stevenson's first published fiction, and a few of the stories are considered by some critics to be his best work, as well as pioneering works in the English-language short story tradition.

 

New Arabian Nights is divided into two volumes (all in this same book)

 

Volume 1

The first volume contains seven stories originally called Later-day Arabian Nights and published by London Magazine in serial format from June to October 1878. It is composed of two story groups, or cycles:

  • "The Suicide Club"
  • "The Rajah's Diamond"

 

Volume 2

The second volume is a collection of four unconnected (standalone) stories that were previously published in magazines:

  • "The Pavilion on the Links" (1880), told in 9 mini-chapters
  • "A Lodging for the Night" (1877)
  • "The Sire De Malétroits Door" (1877)
  • "Providence and the Guitar" (1878)
