By R. K. Narayan

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. Although the Sanskrit original was composed by Valmiki around the fourth century BC, poets have produced countless versions in different languages.

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.
