A sweeping tale of abduction, battle, and courtship played out in a universe thronged with heroes, deities, and demons, The Ramayana has been thrilling readers and listeners since the fourth century B.C. Here, R.K. Narayan — one of India’s greatest literary lights — draws mostly on the work of the eleventh-century Tamil poet Kamban and recounts it with the narrative flair of a master novelist. Narayan’s Ramayana is an ancient treasure to be savored as much for its wisdom, spiritual depth, and insight as for its colorful portrayal of otherworldly passion and strife.
