By: Nair, Karthika.
Publisher: Noida Harper Collins 2015Description: xxii, 263 p.ISBN: 9789351772828.Subject(s): History - India | MahabharataDDC classification: 294.5923 Summary: Poetry that explores the Mahabharata from a female perspective. In Until the Lions, Karthika Naïr retells the Mahabharata through multiple voices. Her poems capture the epic through the lenses of nameless soldiers, outcast warriors and handmaidens but also abducted princesses, tribal queens and a gender-shifting god. As peripheral figures and silent catalysts take centre stage, we get a glimpse of lives and stories buried beneath the edifices of god and nation, heroes and victory; a glimpse of the price paid for myth and history all too often interchangeable.
