Sinbad by GENZOMAN Sinbad by GENZOMAN

Sinbad the Sailor (also spelled Sindbad; Persian: سندپاذ; Arabic السندباد البحري Al-Sindibaad Al-Bahri) is a story-cycle of ancient Middle Eastern origin. Sinbad is a Persian word[1] hinting at an Iranian origin - although the oldest texts of the cycle are in Arabic. Sinbad, the hero of the stories is a sailor from Basrah, living during the Abbasid Caliphate.
The stories themselves are based partly on real experiences of sailors around the Indian Ocean, partly on ancient poetry (including Homer's Odyssey and Vishnu Sarma's Panchatantra), and partly upon Indian and Persian collections of mirabilia. They recount the fantastic adventures of Sinbad during his voyages throughout the seas east of Africa and south of Asia.
The collection is tale 133 in Volume 6 of Sir Richard Burton's translation of The Book of One Thousand and One Nights (Arabian Nights).[2] This remains the classic translation in English (famed as much for Burton's footnotes as for the tales themselves), but modern readers are perhaps more familiar with abridged versions produced for a more juvenile audience. While Burton and other Western translators have grouped the Sinbad stories within the tales of Scheherazade, the Arabian Nights, its origin appears to have been quite independent from that story cycle and modern translations by Arab scholars often do not include the stories of Sinbad or several other of the Arabian Nights that have become familiar to Western audiences.
