5.0 out of 5 starsExcellent translationsApril 3 2000
By A. Guyton - Published on Amazon.com
Hymns for the Drowning is an excellent selection of poems from the famous bhakti poet Nammalvar. Ramanujan's translations are clear and evokative, retaining the spirit of the original Tamil. It includes an excellent introductory article on Bhakti poets and Nammalvar.
