Description

Soma*deva composed his "Ocean of the Rivers of Story" in Kashmir in the eleventh century CE. It is a vast collection of tales based on "The Long Story," a now lost (and perhaps legendary) repository of Indian fables, in which prince Nara*vahana*datta wins twenty-six wives and becomes the emperor of the sorcerers. There are tales within tales within tales. By turns funny, exciting, or didactic, they illustrate points within the narrative or are told simply to provide entertainment for the protagonists. Its twenty thousand plus verses are written in simple but elegant Sanskrit and it has long been used as an introductory text for students of the language. Co-published by New York University Press and the JJC Foundation For more on this title and other titles in the Clay Sanskrit series, please visit http://www.claysanskritlibrary.org
