about

Andrew Lang (1844 – 1912) was a Scots poet, novelist, literary critic, and contributor to the field of anthropology. He is best known as a collector of folk and fairy tales. Lang was also a prolific author of fiction works; he wrote his own fairy tales such as Prince Prigio (1889) and Prince Ricardo of Pantouflia (1893), and wrote numerous historical texts. Andrew Lang was great friends with Robert Louis Stevenson and H. Rider Haggard, with whom he wrote The World's Desire (1890). Preferring romance over realism, he admired their works as well as those of Alexandre Dumas Père, Henry Fielding, William Makepeace Thackeray, fellow Scot Robert Burns and many others.
One young man wasted his inheritance until he has nothing left but a few shillings, a pair of slippers, and an old dressing-gown. A friend sent him a luggage with directions to pack up and be off. Having nothing to pack, got into the trunk. The trunk is moved to the land of the Turks. He used the trunk to visit the sultan's daughter, who is kept in a tower because of a prophecy that her marriage would be unhappy… What happened next? Read the story to know!
