3 John Stratton Hawley and Mark Juergensmeyer
Songs of the Saints of India
Oxford University Press; New Delhi, India; 0195694201 / 9780195694208; Paperback; New; 
'We have waited long for an anthology of Hindi bhakti of this range, authority, and literary excellence.' -- A K Ramanujan 'The author's deep knowledge of the bhakti traditions of north India is evident both in their choice of representative poetry for each of the six saints and in the renderings of their poetry, which are so skilfully fashioned that one can easily hear the nuances of each poet's voice in registers of contemporary English.' -- The Journal of Asian Studies 'This is one of those rare and wonderful books that makes first-rate scholarship immediately accessible to the non-specialist.' --Religious Studies Review This book presents the life stories and poems of six well-known saint-poets of north India Ravidas, Kabir, Nanak, Surdas, Mirabai, and Tulsidas who have contributed more to the religious vocabulary of Hinduism in north India today than any voices before or since. In worship, in education, even in politics, modern Hinduism sings their tune. With a biographical and interpretive essay on each poet and a selection of representative verses in original translation, this book offers a complete introduction to a literature that transcends the boundaries we associate with religion, and those of India as well. This new edition of the Songs of the Saints of India will appeal to travellers, students, and anyone eager to hear the music of north Indian religion and see its hidden contours.

5 Surdas (Author), Kenneth E. Bryant (Ed.) & John Stratton Hawley (Tr.)
Sur's Ocean: Poems from the Early Tradition
Harvard University Press/IBD; Noida, India; 2015; 0674427831 / 9780674427839; Softcover; New; 
Surdas has been regarded as the epitome of artistry in old Hindi religious poetry from the end of the sixteenth century, when he lived, to the present day. His fame rests upon his remarkable refashioning of the widely known narrative of the cowherd deity Krishna and his lover Radha into lyrics that are at once elegant and approachable. Surdass popularity led to the proliferation, through an energetic oral tradition, of poems ascribed to him, known as the gar.Surs ocean-poems from the early tradition presents a dramatically new edition in Devanagari script and a lyrical English translation. This remarkable volume reconstructs the early tradition of Surdass verse-the 433 poems that were known to the singers of Surdass own time as his. Here Surdas stands out with a clarity never before achieved.The Murty classical library of India makes available original texts and modern English translations of the masterpieces of literature and thought from across the whole spectrum of Indic languages over the past two millennia in the most authoritative and accessible formats on offer anywhere.
