Overview

According to Wikipedia: "Sir Edwin Arnold (10 June 1832 - 24 March 1904) was an English poet and journalist, who is most known for his work, The Light of Asia . . . . 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 (tr. by Acharya Ram Chandra Shukla). It appeared in 1879 and was an immediate success, going through numerous editions in England and America, though its permanent place in literature is quite uncertain. It is an Indian epic, dealing with the life and teaching of the Buddha."
