Magha’s Sisupalavadha, one of India's six so-called Mahakavyas or epic poems, indeed is a fantastic, if not great summit of achievements in mankind’s world of literature. The plot has been taken from the Mahabharata. The story might be seen in the light of a political assassination of an opposite party in times of India's historical great war. For the first time now the poem has completely been translated into English by Jan Marcus Zwaan as taught by Vallabhadeva and Mallinatha. The reading is the fast ride of the roller coaster of feelings and experiences, up and down, left to right, through the vast landscape of imagination of your mind, in the meantime eating the cake of old science, made of lovemaking, speech, grammar, poetics, politics, argument, warfare, you name it, iced with humor and irony, and the least of it all of course the Veda. To top all of this the original has been added. Well, let the ride begin, take over, have fun, beware of the cake. Jan Marcus Zwaan was born in Amsterdam, the Netherlands. He read Classical as well as Indian and Iranian Languages at the University of Amsterdam. He teaches Classical Languages at a Grammar school in the Netherlands.
