The Longest Poem: Writing with the Mahabharata [Shankar Narayan]

All Levels | In these apocalyptic times, questions of mortality, truth, and ethics are on all our minds. Fortunately, there’s an ancient precedent to turn to — the world’s longest poem, the Mahabharata. Lyrical, engaging, and loaded with wisdom, the Mahabharata can invigorate anyone’s writing practice.
