Devoted to the Goddess: The Life and Work of Ramprasad (SUNY series in Hindu Studies) by Malcolm McLean



In this book, Malcolm McLean examines the evidence for the life of Ramprasad, and finding little in the historical record, deconstructs the important early biographics, which contain material that is largely legendary in nature. A founder figure emerges whose life, modeled on that of the earlier saint, Caitanya, became a rallying point for his followers.

Devoted to the Goddess The Life and Work of Ramprasad. Malcolm McLean - Author. SUNY series in Hindu Studies. Release Date: February 1998.

The book includes copious new translations (the best and most extensive in English, so far as I know). It is well informed, based on impressive familiarity with primary and secondary sources in Bengali and with postmodern discourse, but it wears its scholarship lightly.
