The Panchatntra

by Arthur W.Ryder
4.4 out of 5
Publisher Embassy Books
Synopsis "The Panchatantra comprises of five books of fables, where each story takes you on an adventure of learning varied topics such as philosophy, psychology, politics, human relationships, and more. Originally composed by Vishnu Sharma in Sanskrit, the stories were meant to impart wisdom to three young princes on the ways of the world. At first glance, the tales from The Panchatantra seem like simple animal fables with morals, however, the stories, using examples and metaphors are works of profound intelligence that hold as much value even today as they did two thousand years ago. The wisdom of The Panchatantra has stood the test of time and continues to both entertain and educate us. The work presented here is a translation in English by Arthur W. Ryder, originally published by The University of Chicago Press. "

About the author Arthur Ryder, a Professor of Sanskrit at the University of California, translated the Sanskrit original into English in 1925. This re-write of the Ryder translation is aimed at today's busy reader and the original interwoven stories are presented separately. Archaic English prose makes way for modern language. The Principle clearly and simply summarizes the wisdom imparted at the end of each story. Arthur Ryder's brilliant introduction and charming verse translations remain untouched. The present edition has further inputs from Sunita Parasuraman.
