Product Description

Product Description

The tales of "Kalila and Dimna", also known as "The Panchatantra", "Kalila wa Dimna" and "The Fables of Bidpai" originated in India over two thousand years ago.

Since then, these charming and humorous stories about animals have migrated, in oral or literary format, into the folklore of every major culture and tradition. What links the fables is the core message about managing power, wise leadership and the value of true friendship. In his retelling of this world classic,

Ramsay Wood deftly knits several oral storytelling traditions into a contemporary and captivating style. This version from all major ancient texts is the first new compendium in English since 1570. Young and old alike will treasure these beautifully illustrated tales. Edgar Otten's translation is a stunnning labour of love.

More About the Author

*A- See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ramsay_Wood

*B- Details about my work are available on: ramsaywood.com and my offical facebook page is www.facebook.com/RamsayWoodAuthor2

*C- The 2009 London lecture I gave at the School of Oriental and African Studies for the The Institute for Cultural Research (ICR) Seminar, THE POWER OF STORIES is available (in three 15 minute parts) under "Videos" to the right. The fourth, unrelated video, illustrates the annual tradition of the Dali Lama reading and telling a Jataka Tale in public.

This 2009 ICR lecture began as an exploration of four questions:
"What makes the ancient Sanskrit fables of the *Panchatantra* so durable and well traveled? What role did live storytelling have in their origin and steady migration? What is the function of such stories, if any, beyond entertainment? Why are they so beautiful and hauntingly compelling?"

*D- Thanks to their support, I continued researching this theme for ICR by writing their Monograph Series No 59: *Extraordinary Voyages of The Panchatantra* published 2011 by The Institute for Cultural Research (ICR):-http://www.i-c-r.org.uk/publications/newpublications.php

*E- However the only full and final version of this essay appears in the Afterword of my *Kalila and Dimna, Vol. 2: Fables of Conflict and Intrigue from the Panchatantra, Jatakas, Bidpai, Kalila and Dimnah and Lights of Canopus* available in paperback and Kindle editions.
