Hayavadana by Girish Karnad( Book )

3 editions published between 1975 and 1985 in Hindi and English and held by 12 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The central plot in "Hayavadana" is based on a tale found in the "Kathasaritsagara" (The Ocean of Story), "a collection of Sanskrit stories dating from the eleventh century, and on its further development in Thomas Mann's 1940 German novella" The Transposed Heads. Thus "Hayavadana's origins are intergeneric (a folktale transformed into a novella into a play) and intercultural (the story travelled from India to Germany and back again). 'Inter-ness' pervades "Hayavadana" at every level, from its origins to its thematic content to its production history."

At the vortex of this upheaval is Katyayani who transgresses the taboos against widow remarriage, jeopardising her relationship with her son and linking together the destiny of two emotionally scarred families that are striving to preserve their integrity and their lineage. Vamshavriksha is a sensitive exploration of love and loss, tragedy and triumph, interwoven with spiritual, historical and cultural insights"--Amazon.com
