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.
