This volume strikes a new note in the study of Indian epics--the Ramayana and the Mahabharata. In it, for the first time, mythology is dissociated from the running threads of both the epic texts. By skilfull application of analytical method and critical observation, epic mythology is placed in an independent setting, and a flood of light is thrown on its richness.The discussion in this volume is carried on within a compass of nine chapters. Its coverage includes the worlds of Spirits and Deities, Divine Seers and Earthly Rsis, Great Devas and Supreme Gods. The lively delineation of topics is supplemented with a detailed scholarly Index.Epic Mythology has not exhausted its freshness even after more than seventy years of its first publiccation from Strassburg. Its appeal remains as strong as ever for all students of Indology, particularly those engaged in researches of the epic period of Indian literature. This second reprint of the Strassburg edition is issued to cater to the needs of those students and researchers.

I received the book several days ago and I am delighted. It took probably seven days for the book to arrive in upstate New York. Excellent service....
