Présentation de l'éditeur :

The Rigveda is the oldest Sanskrit text, consisting of over one thousand hymns dedicated to various divinities of the Vedic tradition. Orally composed and orally transmitted for several millennia, the hymns display remarkable poetic complexity and religious sophistication. As the culmination of the long tradition of Indo-Iranian oral-formulaic praise poetry and the first monument of specifically Indian religiousity and literature, the Rigveda is crucial to the understanding both of Indo-European and Indo-Iranian intellectual and aesthetic prehistory and of the rich flowering of Indic religious expression and Indic high literature that were to follow. This new translation represents the first complete scholarly translation into English in over a century and utilizes the results of the intense research of the last century on the language and the ritual system of the text. The focus of this translation is on the poetic techniques and structures utilized by the bards and on the ways that the poetry intersects with and dynamically expresses the ritual underpinnings of the text.

Revue de presse :

One might be expected to characterize in these pages a new, complete translation of the Rig Veda as 'precise,' 'careful,' 'philologically sound,' perhaps even 'illuminating' ... Brereton and Jamison's English RV is all of the above, as we would expect from these two scholars, but the adjectives that come first to mind are of a different order entirely: elegant, charming, surprising, generous, readable, accessible, and engaging. An elegant RV is almost an oxymoron; thus the achievement, in this case, is remarkable. (David Shulman, Indo-Iranian Journal)
