Folktales from India (Pantheon Fairy Tale and Folklore Library)

Folktales from India (Pantheon Fairy Tale and Folklore Library)

Folktales from India is an enchanting collection of one hundred and ten tales translated from twenty-two different languages, by turns harrowing and comic, sardonic and allegorical, mysterious and romantic. Gods disguised as beggars and beasts; animals enacting Machiavellian intrigues: sagacious jesters and magical storytellers; wise counselors and foolish kings—all of these inhabit a fabular world, yet one firmly grounded in everyday life. Augmented by A. K. Ramanujan’s definitive introduction and notes, this is an indispensable guide to India's ageless folklore tradition.
