The Appeasement of Radhika: Radhika Santawanam | [Muddupalani, Sandhya Mulchandani (translator)]

The Appeasement of Radhika: Radhika Santawanam

An erotic narrative poem that explores desire and jealousy, love experienced and love lost, Radhika Santawanam is the most recognized work of 19th-century poet and courtesan Muddupalani. Celebrated as a literary masterpiece in Muddupalani's lifetime, Radhika Santawanam was banned by the British in 1910. When it was published again, a century and a half later, critics panned its graphic descriptions of lovemaking. Now, after another 100 years, this epic is available in its entirety for the first time in English translation.
