The Epic of Ram presents a new translation of the Rāmcaritmānas of Tulsidas (1543-1623). Written in Avadhi, a literary dialect of classical Hindi, the poem has become the most beloved retelling of the ancient Ramayana story across northern India. A devotional work revered and recited by millions of Hindus today, it is also a magisterial compendium of philosophy and lore, and a literary masterpiece. In the sixth volume, Ram and his devoted allies fight the army of Ravan in a climactic battle that ends with the death of the demon king. Ram reunites with Sita, and--after her fidelity is confirmed by the burning of an illusory double--they board a flying palace to return to the city of Ayodhya, where Bharat has been waiting anxiously as his brother Ram's fourteen-year exile nears its end. This new translation into free verse conveys the passion and momentum of the inspired poet and storyteller. It is accompanied by the most widely accepted edition of the Avadhi text, presented in the Devanagari script.… (more)
