Upon an Old Wall Dreaming: More of My Favourite Stories and Sketches

Upon an Old Wall Dreaming: More of My Favourite Stories and Sketches

Ruskin Bond’s writing brings the world to us in profound and remarkable ways. His signature style is simplicity itself, but the themes he tackles are big, deep and universal—love, loss, happiness, grief, and all the shades of emotion in between. These are stories of city and small town, mountain and lowland, and of life lived slowly and lightly. For over fifty years, these tales have charmed and beguiled several generations of readers. Last year, Ruskin Bond made a selection of his favourite stories (from the several hundred that he has written) that were published in a book entitled A Gathering of Friends. It proved to be enormously popular, selling out in a matter of weeks. Encouraged by its success, the author has made a further selection of his favourite stories and non-fiction sketches, leavening the mix with several pieces that have never been published before. It is a collection that will burnish his reputation as one of the world’s great storytellers.

Praise for the Author:

‘Ruskin Bond has long been regarded as one of the pillars of Indian literature.’—Deccan Chronicle
‘His stories…have colours and characters that leave an imprint on you.’—Millennium Post
‘One of the best storytellers of contemporary India.’—The Tribune
‘One of India’s finest and most popular storytellers.’—The Man
‘A writer of timeless tales.’—The Statesman

The Law Code of Manu (Oxford World's Classics)

The Law Code of Manu (Oxford World's Classics)

'Manu was seated, when the great seers came up to him: "Please, Lord, tell us the Laws of all the social classes, as well as of those born in between..."'

The Law Code of Manu is the most authoritative and the best-known legal text of ancient India. Famous for two thousand years it still generates controversy, with Manu's verses being cited in support of the oppression of women and members of the lower castes. A seminal Hindu text, the Law Code is important for its classic description of so many social institutions that have come to be identified with Indian society. It deals with the relationships between social and ethnic groups, between men and women, the organization of the state and the judicial system, reincarnation, the workings of karma, and all aspects of the law.

Patrick Olivelle's lucid translation is the first to be based on his critically edited text, and it incorporates the most recent scholarship on ancient Indian history, law, society, and religion.

ABOUT THE SERIES: For over 100 years Oxford World's Classics has made available the widest range of literature from around the globe. Each affordable volume reflects Oxford's commitment to scholarship, providing the most accurate text plus a wealth of other valuable features, including expert introductions by leading authorities, helpful notes to clarify the text, up-to-date bibliographies for further study, and much more.

Appeasement Of Radhika: Radhika Santawanam

Appeasement Of Radhika: Radhika Santawanam

An erotic classic and the most recognized work of an celebrated nineteenth-century poet and courtesan 'Last night, I dreamt of Hari With that melodious-voiced woman. He seemed impatient with me, And now even The song of the nightingale seems shrill.' An erotic narrative poem that explores desire and jealousy, love experienced and love lost, Radhika Santawanam is the most recognized work of nineteenth-century poet and courtesan Muddupalani. Celebrated as a literary masterpiece in Muddupalani's lifetime, Radhika Santawanam was banned by the British in 1910 when it was published again, a century and a half later, with critics panning its graphic descriptions of lovemaking. And, after another hundred years, this epic is now available in its entirety for the first time in English translation

Aa Maratheyum Marannu Marannu Njan: And Slowly Forgetting That Tree (Oxford Novellas)

Aa Maratheyum Marannu Marannu Njan: And Slowly Forgetting That Tree (Oxford Novellas)

The powerful memory of a former love rules Radhika's inner world as she builds a small-time practice in Law and attempts normalcy in a marriage she neither wanted nor resisted. Raped at age ten, raped again as a young collegiate, she is abandoned twice: first by her father and later by Christy who loved her but takes her through a wedding ceremony only to leave her later the same day. When Christy returns sixteen years later, shattered and unstable, the burnt and withered roots of love bloom again. Trauma, betrayal and loneliness are the colours that paint this picture of physical and emotional violence that Radhika endures.
