Description
Little known in the West, the Ramayana is a vast poem of 50,000 verses. It is the world's oldest storY, longer than the Iliad and the Odyssey combined. The Ramayana tells of a time when the world was a place of wonder, when gods and heroes lived among mankind, facing powerful supernatural forces of evil.

First translated into a European language (English) between 1806 and 1810, it has been considered a literary masterpiece by scholars and historians ever since. The literary historian, A.A, McDonald, assessed its significance in 1919: "Probably no work of world literature, secular in origin, has produced so profound an influence in the life and thought of a people as the Ramayana". Revered by hundreds of millions of Hindus for millennia, this contemporary retelling of India's extraordinary tale of adventure, war, love and wisdom now becomes accessible for Western readers.
