Persian Manuscripts : Tales of the Genii


Persian Manuscripts

<p style='text-align: justify;'> This nineteenth-century work written in ornate Persian prose identifies itself by a misleading title of <i>Qiṣṣah-ʼi Chahār Darvīsh</i> (Tale of the Four Dervishes) ascribed to Amīr Khusraw Dihlavī (fl. ca. 1253–1325) in the colophon. However, it actually appears to be another unidentified, original <i>qiṣṣah</i> fairy tale romance inspired by that work combined with characters and plot elements adapted from the <i>Ḥamzah-nāmah</i> (Story of Amīr Ḥamzah, see Rylands <a target='_blank' class='externalLink uom-purple' href=''>Persian MS 659</a>). </p>
