Summary This illustrated volume of The Arabian Nights provides readers with a detailed introduction and a variety of scenes from the stories in the text The Arabian Nights features many aspects of Arabian folklore, including that of the ghoul. In ancient Arabian folklore, the ghūl (Arabic: literally demon) dwells in burial grounds and other uninhabited places. The ghul is a fiendish type of jinn believed to be sired by Iblis. A ghul is also a desert-dwelling, shapeshifting, evil demon that can assume the guise of an animal, especially a hyena. It lures unwary people into the desert wastes or abandoned places to slay and devour them. The creature also preys on young children, drinks blood, steals coins and eats the dead, then takes the form of the person most recently eaten.
