The Five Discourses on Worldly Wisdom

Here is a new Clay Sanskrit Library translation of The Five Discourses on Worldly Wisdom, well known also by its Sanskrit title as the "Pancatantra." The king despairs of his idle sons, so he hires a learned brahmin who promises to make their lessons in statecraft unmissable. The brahmin's lessons are disguised as short stories, featuring animal protagonists. The Five Discourses on Worldly Wisdom is the book of India's folk wisdom, teaching the principles of good government and public policy through the medium of delightful stories and pithy proverbs. Its positive attitude towards life and its advocacy of ambition, enterprise, and drive counters any preconception of passivity and other-worldliness in ancient Indian society.

For the past twenty years there has been a virtual consensus in philosophy that there is a special link between fiction and the imagination. In particular, fiction has been defined in terms of the imagination: what it is for something to be fictional is that there is some requirement that a reader imagine it. Derek Matravers argues that this rests on a mistake; the proffered definitions of 'the imagination' do not link it with fiction but with representations more generally. In place of the flawed consensus, he offers an account of what it is to read, listen to, or watch a narrative whether that narrative is fictional or non-fictional. The view that emerges, which draws extensively on work in psychology, downgrades the divide between fiction and non-fiction and largely dispenses with the imagination. In the process, he casts new light on a succession of issues: on the 'paradox of fiction', on the issue of fictional narrators, on the problem of 'imaginative resistance', and on the nature of our engagement with film.

Happiness has always eluded Bill Harris. His teaching job leaves him vaguely dispirited and unfulfilled. To breathe life into his flagging career, he transfers to a new high school, but the decision backfires when his new principal assigns him classes filled with Vietnamese immigrants.When school starts, the students ask Harris to supervise a Vietnamese cultural club. He reluctantly agrees, unaware the decision will change his life. He quickly becomes captivated by his students, spellbound by the beauty of their culture, and often speechless at their fierce loyalty for their parents. He spends long hours helping them prepare a wondrous lunar New Year show. Filled with music, dance, comedy and drama, the show opens with a riveting performance by the Dancing Lion, a terrifying guardian from the palace of a powerful god and ends with The Legend Stone Woman, an ancient story that looks deep into the heart of the Vietnamese way of thinking and illustrates the integrity and strength of the Vietnamese woman.The Dancing Lion describes a year in the life of an American teacher whose life is transformed by his students. It is a touching display of people reaching out to each other across a cultural divide.

Hitopadesa

The ever-popular Book of Good Counsels from ancient India. One of the best-known Sanskrit classics, Narayana’s Hitopadesa is a fascinating collection of animal and human fables augmented with polished verse epigrams and gnomic stanzas, many of which have become proverbial. This satirical, often irreverent and sometimes ribald text has been popular for centuries as a compendium of worldly advice on matters ranging from statesmanship and detailed battle plans to personal conduct and marital fidelity. It has also served generations of students as a model of grammatical and metaphorical excellence. In this ‘Garden of Pleasing Stories’, as Narayan himself describes it, birds, beasts, men and women scheme, suffer, lust, err, grieve and rejoice, acting as perceptive social critics and astute commentators on the absurd nature of human folly. Combining his own literary genius with skilful selections and modifications of material from the Panchatantra and a host of other traditional sources, Narayan has created a refreshingly original masterpiece. This excellent new translation faithfully renders the wit and wisdom of the original.

Over and again, the aged seeress Tamis scried all the possible tomorrows. In every one, dark forces threatened Greece; terrible evil was poised to reenter the world. The future held only one hope: a half-caste Spartan boy, Parmenion. So Tamis made it her mission to see that Parmenion would before the deadliest warrior in the world -- no matter what the cost. Raised to manhood in Sparta, bullied and forced to fight for his life every day, Parmenion had no notion of the unseen dimensions of magic and mystery that shaped his fate. He grew in strength and cunning. His military genius earned him the title Strategos in Sparta. His triumphs for the city of Thebes made him a hero. And finally his fate led him to the service of Philip of Macedon. As Tamis had foreseen, Parmenion's destiny was tied to the Dark God, to Philip, and to the yet-unborn Alexander. All too soon the future was upon them. Parmenion stood poised to defeat evil -- or to open the gate for the Dark God to reenter the world. From the Trade Paperback edition.
