Bhakti Rose - Book Review - The Forest of Enchantments

The Forest of Enchantments
by Chitra Banerjee Divakaruni

 

 

I discovered this book in a bookshop in Delhi airport and then devoured it on the long flight from Delhi to Sydney. It is based on the ancient yogic scripture 'The Ramayana', one of the world's greatest epics. It is also tragic love story, a feminist text and a beautiful and powerful reinterpretation of a classic story (told from a woman's point of view). Themes of duty, betrayal, infidelity and honour prevail and there is a strong focus on women's struggle to retain autonomy in a world that privileges men. I loved every page and highlighted many beautiful quotes.
