The literary task which he set before him was the interpretation in English verse of the life and philosophy of the East. His chief work with this object is The Light of Asia, which was translated into various languages such as Hindi. The Light of Asia, subtitled The Great Renunciation, is in a form of a narrative poem. The book endeavors to describe the life and time of Prince Gautama Siddhartha, who after attaining enlightenment became The Buddha, The Awakened One. The book presents his life, character, and philosophy, in a series of verses. It is a free adaptation of the Lalitavistara. A few decades before the book’s publication, very little was known outside Asia about the Buddha and Buddhism, the religion which he founded, and which had existed for about twenty-five centuries. Arnold’s book was one of the first successful attempts to popularize Buddhism for a Western readership.Table of Contents:The Light of AsiaLight of the World; or, The Great Consummation:At Bethlehem Mary Magdalene.The Magus.The Alabaster Box.The Parables.The Love of God and Man.The Great ConsummationIndian PoetryThe Indian Song of Songs (Hymn to Vishnu -11 Sargas)Miscellaneous Oriental Poems:The Rajpoot WifeKing SaladinThe Caliph’s DraughtHindoo Funeral SongSong of the Serpent-charmersSong of the Flour-millTaza ba TazaThe Mussulman ParadiseDedication of a Poem From the SanskritThe Rajah’s RideTwo Books From The Iliad Of India”The Great Journey.””The Entry Into Heaven.””Night of Slaughter.”The Morning Prayer.Proverbial Wisdom From the Shlokas of the Hitopadeśa…The Song Celestial or Bhagavad-Gita (from the Mahâbhârata)Potiphar’s Wife

The Ballad of the White Horse: An Epic Poem by G. K. Chesterton

A rousing ballad based on the true story of legendary Saxon king Alfred the Great In the dark times before a unified England, warring tribes roved and sparred for territory across the British Isles.
