Ramayana

William Buck

The Ramayana is one of India’s great epics and one that has left an indelible mark on Indian culture, society and religion. This translation, by William Buck, is one of the best. As Buck wrote before his untimely death at the age of 37: “My method in writing both Mahabharata and Ramayana was to begin with a literal translation from which to extract the story, and then to tell that story in an interesting way that would preserve the spirit and flavor of the original.” Buck was able to do just that—the book is well-written, charming and a real page-turner.
