The Bull and the Ass

Welcome to the second episode of the 1001 Arabian Nights audio drama, adapted from Sir Richard Burton's timeless classic "Arabian Nights Entertainments." The Arabian Nights  tale continues as the witty Wazir tries to reason with his willful daughter Sharzahd, weaving a tale that begins in a humble barnyard between a merchant farmer and a bellowing Bull, a Braying Ass, a doleful Dog, and a cocky Cock! This merchant is no ordinary fellow as he understands the speech of birds and beasts. His laughing almost causes him to lose his life over revealing the animal's secrets at the insistence of his shrewish wife. Upon the tale's conclusion, Sharzahd seals her fate to the vengeful King Shahryar. Introducing Sharzahd's  lovely sister Dunyazad in this prelude to the first of 1001 Nights.
