Summary: A Fascinating Scholarly Work / Kali in Literature
Comment: This book is a fascinating work of scholarship which traces the path of the Goddess Kali through several literary works. Although thorough and well-researched, it is not your typical volume of scholarly literary analysis. Throughout the book, the author has illuminated the pages with her own personal insights and impressions, so that the reader may share in the sense of delight and wonder of making new spiritual and intellectual connections. This book is for those interested in religion, literature, or both. I highly recommend this book to the serious reader who wants to explore this literary-spiritual connection. It is a valuable contribution to the field.
