Love Song of the Dark Lord by John Stratton Hawley

Book Description

Jayadeva's dramatic lyrical poem Gitagovinda is one of the most important works in Indian literature and a source of religious inspiration in both medieval and contemporary Vaishnavism. 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 by John Stratton Hawley 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.

Three Bhakti Voices by John Stratton Hawley Three Bhakti Voices, Paperback (September 2012)

A fascinating story of change and transmission, this book describes how Mirabai, Surdas, and Kabir-the most famous and beloved poet-saints of fifteenth and sixteenth centuries-were heard and perceived in their own times and probes into the many beliefs and legends that emerged long after their deaths.
