Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Providing a unique and intimate view of Hindu marriage, the essays in this collection explore points at which the margins of marriage are traversed or transgressed. Rather than focus on normative expectations within marriage, they examine times in which norms are tested or rejected. Using stories, songs, and narrated accounts, the essays treat such topics as widowhood, adultery, levirate, divorce, and suttee, as well as the subversion of marriage by devotion to deities and by alternative constructions of conjugal duty and marital experience.

Description:

Includes bibliographical references (p. 233-245) and index.

About the Author

Paul B. Courtright is Professor of Religion at Emory University.
