The teacher and the taught : structures and meaning in the Arabian Nights and the Panchatantra by Sadhana Naithani( )
1 edition published in 2004 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
Zowel 'Duizend-en-een-Nacht' als de Panchatantra' bevatten een groot aantal verhalen onder één paraplu of raamverhaal, en het raamverhaal van beide werken is door de eeuwen heen stabieler gebleven dan de erin opgenomen verhalen. Dit artikel is een vergelijkende studie van de twee raamverhalen, die beide onafhankelijk zijn van de verhalen die zij omvatten. De studie gaat uit van de observatie dat de structuren van de beide raamverhalen opvallende gelijkenissen hebben, ofschoon ze zijn samengesteld uit totaal verschillende elementen.
