Love Song of the Dark Lord: Jayadeva's Gitagovinda

by

Love Song of the Dark Lord: Jayadeva's Gitagovinda Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Jayadeva's dramatic lyrical poem Gitagovinda is one of the most important works in Indian literature and a source of religious inspiration in both medieval and contemporary Vaishnavism. Revealing an intense earthly passion to express the complexities of divine and human love, its songs are an important part of Indian devotional music and literature. This twentieth anniversary edition brings this classic to a new generation of readers and offers fresh insights for those familiar with the text.

Review:

"Miller's volume is an essential contribution to Indian study and to poetry in translation in general. She has given us the Indian equivalent of the Song of Songs without the usual sentimentality." Parabola

Review:

"Excellent... [This translation] beautifully renders the Sanskrit lyric into poetic English and captures the rich imagery and musical rhythms of Jayadeva's language." Choice

Synopsis:

This is one of the most important works in Indian literature and a source of religious inspiration in both medieval and contemporary Vaishnavism.
