Kairós, Editorial S.A., 2006 - 218 páginas
The Mahabharata, together with the other great Sanskrit epic, the Ramayana, embodies much of the cultural and religious heritage of India. This prose version of the epic elegantly narrates the great war between the Kauravas and the Pandavas, and tells of the warriors, kings, saints, and goddesses caught up in the romance and drama of family intrigue. With diversity of plots and themes—including the philosophical teachings of the Bhagavad Gita—the Mahabharata has entertained and influenced Indian audiences for nearly 2,000 years. El Mahabharata, junto con el otro gran poema épico Sánscrito, el Ramayana, representa mucha de la herencia cultural y religiosa de la India. Esta brillante interpretación que viene abreviada y en prosa, narra la gran guerra entre los Kauravas y los Pandavas, y evoca los guerreros, reyes, santos y dioses que hicieron papeles en este drama cósmico monumental. Con su diversidad de tramas y temas—incluyendo las enseñanzas filosóficas del Bhagavada Gita—el Mahabharata ha entretenido e influido al público de la India desde hace hasta 2,000 años.

Sobre el autor (2006)

R. K. Narayan was born on October 10, 1906 in Madras, Brtitsh India. He graduated from Maharaja College of Mysore with a B.A. degree in 1930. All of his many novels take place in Malgudi, an imaginary town in southern India that serves as a kind of "golden mean", neither a large, impersonal city nor an obscure, isolated village, through which Narayan explores the dilemmas of modernization. For example, The Bachelor of Arts is the story of a sensitive youth caught in a conflict between Western ideas of love and marriage instilled in him by his education and the still-traditional milieu in which he lives. Malgudi is a microcosm of modern India, and throughout Narayan's novels, which span more than 50 years of India's growth, we can watch Malgudi's inhabitants evolve in precisely the same way that their hometown does. Narayan's wit and literary skill have made him a favorite with readers all over the world. He died of typhoid in 1939.
