Resenhas

This selection and translation of 75 seminal myths spans the wide range of classical Indian resources, from the serpent slaying Indra of the Vedas c. 1200 BC to the medieval pantheon: the phallic and esthetic Siva, the maternal and bloodthirsty goddess, the mischievous child Krishna, the other avatars of Vishnu, and many minor guides, demons, rivers and animals sacred to Hinduism.

While this book explores ways to discover, appreciate, and translate the stories of the "other," it did not find a way to draw me in. Writing was dry and somewhat stale for me.
