Title: Ramayana of Valmiki, The
Author: Sen, Makhan Lal (Translator)
Description: This is a modernized version of the great Sanskrit epic Ramayana in English prose. Actually, Valmiki’s Ramayana is something more than an epic. No one has built shrines in honor of Homer’s heroes to worship them as God. In contrast, from the time of its composition to this day, Valmiki’s hero never lacked devotees. Rama is a personification of all that is expected of an ideal son, ideal brother, ideal husband, ideal prince, ideal ally, ideal commander, and ideal king. Here the translator has done his best to capture to a remarkable degree the grandeur of the epic, the loftiness of its thought, the simplicity and elegance of its diction and the freshness of its enduring beauty.
