King-Tales from Rajasthan: This is a translation of Raj Kahini, the very popular 1905 Bengali literary classic, written by Abanindranath Tagore. The book features nine tales retold from The Annals and Antiquities of Rajasthan by James Todd (1829, 1832). Abanindranath's stories, written at the inception of the Bengali nationalist swadeshi movement, present a psychology of subjective mysticism in their treatment of clan oral history, with an intent to stimulate alternate approaches and ideals for post-modern and anti-colonial resistance. The translations have been made with a careful eye to the subtleties of literary use and subjective nuance.
