POETRY TEXTS & ANTHOLOGIES. Attributed to Valmiki, thought to be India's first poet, the Ramayana's origins date back thousands of years when it was first committed to Sanskrit. Since then, generations of children the world over have grown up with its story of Rama's quest to recover his wife Sita from her abduction by Raavana, the Lord of the Underworld. The tale has been celebrated in many languages and has spread to many other countries including Nepal, Tibet, Thailand, Burma, Laos, Cambodia, Malaysia and Indonesia. It is used as a Hindu, Jain, Buddhist, Islamic, Sikh as well as a secular text, and lives in many art forms too: in drama and dance, in sculpture and painting, in prose and in poetry. Daljit Nagra was captivated by the versions his grandparents regaled him with as a child. Now an award-winning poet of dazzling gifts, he has chosen to bring the story to life in a vivid and enthralling version of his own

Ramayana by Daljit Nagra( Book )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 12 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Escrito en versos, el Ramayana ("el viaje de Rama") es una de las obras épicas de la lengua sánscrita, que narra las aventuras de Rama, su protagonista, adorado como la séptima encarnación de Vishnú y considerado la persona ideal gracias a sus méritos y rectitud. Esta edición, que recoge básicamente el contenido de los capítulos II al VI del libro original, resulta una traducción en prosa que mantiene la belleza en le lenguaje y la entonación majestuosa y reiterativa que caracteriza a la epopeya. Osea, estamos leyendo una especie de novela de aventuras en la que de continuo intervienen los dioses, la magia, los elementos fantásticos (animales que hablan, proezas increíbles de los héroes en pugna) y el amor, en la cual no pierde la elegancia de los símiles o la sorpresa de la fricción entre las palabras propias del elnguaje de la poesía. Disfrutemos entonces de esta magna obra de la creación humana, que ayudará a crecer nuestro acervo cultural y espiritual
