Sample text

Moreover, Kampan has introduced Bharata's speech with a beautiful description of his anger, using cosmic imagery that goes all the way back to Sangam literature, where it is used for the king: Before she had finished speaking, his hands, joined in obeisance like flowers on his head, covered his ears. His eyebrows began to dance up and down, flashes of fire ran with his breaths, and his eyes filled with blood. His cheeks twitched; all his pores seemed to explode in flame. Smoke seemed to cover him; his mouth grew wrinkled; and his long hands, as generous as clouds, struck one against the other, breaking the earth and making thunder afraid.
