Love Song of the Dark Lord by John Stratton Hawley

Revealing an intense earthly passion to express the complexities of divine and human love, its songs are an important part of Indian devotional music and literature. The twentith anniversary edition of the renowned translation by noted scholar Barbara Stoler MIller brings this classic to a new generation of readers and offers fresh insights for those familiar with the text.

Storm of Songs, Hardback (March 2015)
A widely-accepted explanation for India's national unity is a narrative called the bhakti movement--poet-saints singing bhakti from India's southern tip to the Himalayas between 600 and 1600. John Hawley shows that this narrative, with its political overtones, was created by the early-twentieth-century circle around Rabindranath Tagore in Bengal.
