The Ramayana of Valmiki

Arshia Sattar (Author)

one of India's greatest epics, the Ramayana pervades the country's moral and cultural consciousness. Beleived to have been composed by Valmiki sometime between the eigth and sixth centuries BC, the Ramayana tells the tragic and magical story of Rama, the prince of Ayodhya, an incarnation of Lord Visnu, born to rid the earth of the terrible demon Ravana.

An idealized heroic tale ending with the inevitable triumph of good over evil, the Ramayana is also an intensely personal story of family relationships, love and loss, duty and honour, of harem intrigue, petty jealousies and destructive ambitions-all this played out in a universe populated by larger-than-life humans, gods and celestial beings, wondrous animals and terrfying demons.

In her magnificent translation Arshia Sattar has successfully bridged both time and space to make this monumental ancient classic accessible to the present day reader.
