The Mahabharata is the longest, and in some ways, the greatest epic poem in any language. The author introduces and presents the portions dealing with this story and its central theme of universal destruction and the evil of war. His prose translation of approximately 4000 verses is supplemented by a glossary, genealogical tables, and an index correlating the verses with the original Sanskrit text.
