Rama's Last Act by Sheldon I. Pollock
Book Description"Rama's Last Act" by Bhava*bhuti is counted among the greatest Sanskrit dramas. The work at once dramatizes the "Ramayana"-it is one of the earliest theatrical adaptations of Valmiki's epic masterpiece-and revises its most intractable episode, the hero's rejection of his beloved wife. Human agency in the face of destiny, the power of love, and the capacity of art to make sense of such mysteries are the themes explored in this singular literary achievement of the Indian stage. Co-published by New York University Press and the JJC Foundation For more on this title and other titles in the Clay Sanskrit series, please visit http://www.claysanskritlibrary.org

'Bouquet of Rasa' and 'River of Rasa', Hardback (March 2009)
Bhanu is probably the most famous Sanskrit poet. His "Bouquet of Rasa" and "River of Rasa", both composed in the early sixteenth century, probably under the patronage of the Nizam of Ahmadnagar in western India, attracted the attention of the most celebrated commentators in early modern India.

The skies darken for the exiles, who have taken refuge in forest hermitages. First one demon, then another, attempts to harm or corrupt them. When these efforts fail, an army of demons is sent, and then a bigger one, but each time Rama again defeats them. Finally Ravana, the supreme lord of the demons, decides to cripple Rama by capturing Sita.
