Scholarly Commentary


This juvenile dramatic fragment, presumably dating from 1835, is known from the small notebook containing his brief dramatic skit The Slave, which DGR wrote about the same time. He was enamoured of The Arabian Nights throughout his childhood and later, around 1840, he made a series of sketches illustrating episodes in that famous collection.
