Download Vikram And The Vampire Or Tales Of Hindu Devilry books, Soldier, explorer, and adventurer, British author CAPTAIN SIR RICHARD FRANCIS BURTON (1821-1890) is perhaps best remembered for his notoriously unexpurgated translations of The Arabian Nights and the Kama Sutra, which scandalized-and titillated-Victorian readers. Lesser known, however, is his intriguing collection of classic Hindu tales of adventure, magic, and romance, first published in 1870. Enlivened by Burton's own imagination-he was the first to translate them from Sanskrit-these stories purport to demonstrate "the exceeding folly of many wise fools," "the use and misuse of magic pills," "that a man's wife belongs not to his body but to his head," "the marvellous delicacy of three queens," and more. This obscure, delightful work is a fascinating look at both Indian mythology and Victorian cultural anthropology.

Vikram And The Vampire

by Richard F. Burton, Vikram And The Vampire Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Vikram And The Vampire books, Vikram and the Vampire: Tales of Hindu Devilry consists of tales of the history of a huge bat, vampire, or evil spirit which inhabited and animated dead bodies. It is an old, and thoroughly Hindu legend composed in Sanskrit, and is the germ which culminated in the Arabian Nights, and which inspired the Golden Ass of Apuleius, Boccaccio's Decameron, and the Pentamerone.The story turns chiefly on a great king named Vikram, the King Arthur of the East, who, in pursuance of his promise to a Jogi or Magician, brings to him the Baital (Vampire), who is hanging on a tree. The difficulties King Vikram and his son have in bringing the Vampire into the presence of the Jogi are truly laughable; and on this thread is strung a series of Hindu fairy stories, which contain much interesting information on Indian customs and manners.
