Über diesen Titel

Inhaltsangabe:

Myth, travelogue, and holy writ, the Ramayana the Journey of Rama is India’s best-loved book, an inspiration to schoolchildren, monks, and movie-makers. It's one of the world’s great epic tales, yet is largely unread in the Western world. The story of a man searching savage jungles for his kidnapped wife, the Ramayana combines Heart of Darkness with the Odyssey. And bizarrely, this violent and erotic account of a war between light and dark is at the heart of the fiercest controversy in contemporary Indian politics one that has claimed more than 10,000 lives. When Martin Buckley first encountered the Ramayana 25 years ago, it became a guide to the complexities of Indian life. Here, he fulfills a dream to retrace the route of Rama from his birthplace in north India to the climax of his confrontation with Evil in Sri Lanka. A cast of mystics and Marxists, idealists and cynics Hindu, Muslim, and Buddhist lays out the rich fabric of contemporary India and Sri Lanka, illuminated by the remarkable story of their past and the quest of a man to rescue the woman he loves.

About the Author:

Martin Buckley has lived in France, Italy, Turkey, and India and has worked as a journalist and broadcaster in more than 40 countries. He has hosted TV travel documentaries for Discovery Channel UK and has been a columnist in the Daily Telegraph and The Observer.

Anbieterinformationen

BookLovers of Bath is based in the rural idyll of Peasedown St. John in Somerset (God's Own Country) in the south west of England and actually very nearly in Bath. After 20 years of being “internet only” I have now opened a shop, Fact or Fable, in the premises of our now-closed Post Office. With over 20,000 books in stock and another 5,000 or so in the shop I run an old-fashioned book business with every book listed, graded, picked, packed and posted by my own fair hand… abetted by my Jack Russells who are really, not, helpful.
