For love of the Dark One: songs of Mirabai
Written by one of the most beloved poet-saints of India, these love songs to Lord Krishna are earthy, sexy, and filled with spiritual devotion. Through her love songs, Mirabai decried the social injustices of her day--the oppression of women, outrages of the caste system, and lack of personal and religious freedom. Two-color line drawings.
