Oriental Tales

Oriental Tales (nouvelles orientales in French) is a 1938 short story collection by the French writer Marguerite Yourcenar. The stories share a self-consciously mythological form; some are based on pre-existing myths and legends, while some are new. The story “How Wang-Fo Was Saved” was adapted into an animated short film by René Laloux in the 1980s.
