Tales from the Kathasaritsagara


Write The First Customer Review

Literally translated as "ocean of the sea of stories", the KATHASARITSAGARA is thought to have been compiled around A.D. 1070 for the queen of Kashmir. Unlike those more familiar classics, this work contains no hidden moral lessons. Instead, it is an uninhibited and bawdy celebration of earthly life. This edition includes ten of the original eighteen books.
