Paulo Lemos Horta in conversation with Sanjoy K. Roy
Writer and translator Paulo Lemos Horta has written on the cultural and literary history of the Arabian Nights and of the travellers, translators and storytellers who gave the world these unforgettable tales in his 'Marvellous Thieves: Secret Authors of the Arabian Nights' and his more recent 'Aladdin: A New Translation'. In 'Aladdin', Horta takes us on a dazzling journey, interweaving and reinventing the dark themes and enchanting whimsy of a classic that has transfixed us for ages. In conversation with Festival producer Sanjoy K. Roy, Horta speaks of the stories, along with the stories behind the stories,to provide a fascinating glimpse of the great cultural reservoir of Arab, Persian and Indian narratives, bringing the literary process to life.
