The Tomb of Sir Richard Francis Burton

Here is a video of someone walking up to the tomb of Nights translator Richard F. Burton in Mortlake, London, England.  As you can see (only briefly at the end of the video) the tomb is in the style of an Arabian tent.


  1. Like your blog. I worked on 1001 Nights for my M.A. in Comp Lit from SDSU. Found out about your interests from UCSD profile page. Thinking of applying to UCSD Ph.D. program - medievalism. Do you recommend the dept? Has it been worthwhile? Gary

  2. Thanks for visiting Gary. Please email me at the address listed on this blog and we can talk further.
