Hi /lit/, I have a question for you. i have a four tome collection of the Arabian Nights, but I feel them kind of childish and not so well written as they should be. The compiler/translator is Margarita rodriguez Acero.
I wanted to know which compiler/translator would you recommend.
Btw, I know Mardrus's and Galland's are some of the best, But those are really hard to get, so if you can put some relatively new ones or links to it, that would be great.
Also I speak spanish, english and french, so originals in those languages get extra points.
Thanks a lot in advance.

ITT: god-tier songwriting.
A few weeks ago, I discovered Phil Ochs, who is very little known (I should even say unknown) in my country, and I was mindblown by some of his lyrics, which are absolutely superb (Crucifixion, Song of my returning, among others).
Can you advise me to other god-tier songwriters in English language?
