RAMAYANA

PAPERBACK

Few works in world literature have inspired so vast an audience, in nations with radically different languages and cultures, as the Ramayana, written some two thousand years ago by a poet known to us as Valmiki. William Buck has retold the story of Prince Rama—with all its nobility of spirit, courtly intrigue, heroic renunciation, fierce battles, and triumph of good over evil—in a length and style that makes the great Indian epic accessible without compromising the spirit and lyricism of the original. Stunningly illustrated with majestic imagery throughout, this 35th anniversary edition is a true collector’s item.
