The new edition of the Silk Road Literature Series ANTHOLOGY “Arabian Nights, World Poems” has been digitally published in 2 parts, to cover the contributions of 156 poets from more than 40 and 15 languages. Poems are written in different native languages including Arabic, Russian, English, French, Italian, German, Greek, Serbian, Croatian, Spanish, Hindi, Indonesian, Armenian, Swedish, Bengali and Japanese.
Ashraf Aboul-Yazid, editor of the international multi-tongues publication said that both parts will be available for free to read as an online copy. While these two parts are approximately 900 pages altogether, the print version will come in one book, and will be released in different cities on the real Silk Road.
The mega anthology is a cultural project to offer global poetic voices a space to sing under an umbrella of the world theme “Arabian Nights” .Arabian Nights is a literary work inspired the world’s creators, whether they were poets, novelists, painters, or film, theater makers and music composers. It is a world that mixes history and legend, a space to travel between illusion and reality.
Few months ago, the editor asked world poets: “Have you read the Nights, or just some of its tales? Have you thought about expressing your admiration or discontent with them? Have you thought of writing a poem about Arabian Nights; characters, heroes, narrator, and the paths of their women and men?”
He also requested them to “be Scheherazade or Dunyazad, act as Shahryar or Shah Zaman, do as Aladdin or Ali Baba, create your own poetic nights”.
This was the theme for the new issue of the Silk Road Literature Series Anthology. Being the coordinator of World Poetry Movement in Egypt, Ashraf Aboul-Yazid announced that the publication will be a part of activities raised by the WPM in Egypt.
In 2021, in the Silk Road Literature Anthology, world poets presented in the first issue (Asia Sings), they excelled in the second issue (Mediterranean Waves), and they shined in the third issue (Ancient Egyptians, Modern Poets).  Finally, 156 poets are gathering,   in the fourth issue (Arabian Nights, World Poems).
