Summary
"The mystical romance Madhumalati tells the story of a prince, Manohar, and his love for the beautiful princess Madhumalati. They meet in a midnight encounter orchestrated by heavenly nymphs, but are soon separated. They have to endure suffering, adventure, and transformation before they can be reunited and experience true happiness. A delightful love story, the poem is also rich in spiritual symbolism: the tale of the two lovers suggests the stages on the ascetic's path to enlightenment and the achievement of mystical union." "Madhumalati, written and recited by Manjhan in the sixteenth century, is an outstanding example of a major Indian Islamic literary tradition. Originally composed in eastern Hindavi, it is here translated for the first time into English verse, with an introduction and notes that explain the poem's aesthetic and religious significance."--BOOK JACKET
