Hanna Diyab
Antun Yusuf Hanna Diyab ( ar, اَنْطون يوسُف حَنّا دِياب, Anṭūn Yūsuf Ḥannā Diyāb; born ''circa'' 1688) was a Syrian Maronite writer and storyteller. He is the origin of the famous tales of ''Aladdin'' and ''Ali Baba and the Forty Thieves'' in the ''One Thousand and One Nights'' translated by Antoine Galland. He was long known only from brief mentions in the diary of Antoine Galland, but the translation and publication of his manuscript autobiography in 2015 dramatically expanded knowledge about his life. Recent reassessments of Diyab's contribution to ''Les mille et une nuits'', Galland's hugely influential version of the Arabic ''One Thousand and One Nights'', have argued that his artistry is central to the literary history of such famous tales as ''Aladdin'' and ''Ali Baba and the Forty Thieves'', despite Diyab never being named in Galland's publications.Arafat A.
