Doubleday, Garden City: 1967. Anchor Books Edition. First Printing. s Softcover. Good condition. Library discard 
In India, the worship of Krishna unites reverence with passion, for he appears to mortals as both god and lover. Songs in his praise are in fact religious love poems which offer readers a quality of surprise. These Bengali lyrics, sensitively translated by Edward Dimock in collaboration with Denise Levertov, will appeal not only to students of India, but to readers who enjoy good poetry.

2 MENEN, AUBREY (AS RETOLD BY). The Ramayana.
Charles Scribner's Sons, NY: 1954. s Softcover. Reading copy. 
This is the mischievous retelling of a Hindu classic, of Rama, a prince of India, who lived his life according to the best advice. He reverenced his intellectual betters who were called Brahmins, and did what they told him to do. He took his morals from the best of moralists, and his politics from the most experienced politicians. As a result he was ruined, exiled and disinherited: his wife was stolen from him and when he got her back he very nearly had to burn her alive from the highest of motives.
