The Chandimangal of Kavikankan Mukundaram Chakravarti is an exemplary work of epic scale that recounts the story of the Goddess Chandi s constant battle to establish her cult among humans. Through the three books of the kavya- The Book of the Gods, The Book of the Hunter and The Book of the Merchant-we are introduced to Chandi in all her manifestations, from the benevolent to the wrathful, from Abhaya to Chamunda. Mukundaram s captivating tales and vivid imagery bring together the enchanting world of the gods with the more challenging world of the mortals while critiquing sixteenthcentury Bengali society. In his exquisite rendering of the Chandimangal, Edward Yazijian manages to capture not only the performative and humorous but also the reverent aspects of the text.



Author Bio: Very little is known about the author Kavikankan Mukundaram Chakravarti. The dates given for his birth have ranged from 1537 to 1547, and most scholars agree that Mukundaram died no later than in the first few years of the seventeenth century. Edward M. Yazijian was born in Amityville, New York. He received a PhD in South Asian Languages and Civilizations from the University of Chicago and currently lives in Greenville, South Carolina, where he teaches at Furman University.
