About Carole Satyamurti’s translation.
"Carole Satyamurti’s version of the Mahabharata moves swiftly and powerfully. She has found a voice that’s capable of a wide variety of expression, and a line—basically classical English blank verse with a jazz-like freedom to swing—that propels the reader effortlessly onward through the cosmic, terrifying, erotic, sublime events of this extraordinary work. I think I shall never get tired of it." — Philip Pullman, author of The Golden Compass
