Looks at a variety of Buddhist sacred writings as literature & includes insights from literary theory.Buddhist Scriptures as Literature explores the drama, lyricism, và compelling storylines in Buddhist sacred writings, while illustrating how rhetoric và ideology are at work in shaping readers’ reactions. Ralph Flores argues that the Buddha’s life story itself follows an archetypal quest-romance pattern: regal surroundings are abandoned and the ensuing feats are heroic. The story can be read as an epic, but it also has a comic plot: confusions và trials until the Prince becomes utterly selfless, having found his true element—nirvamãng cầu. Making use of contemporary literary theory, Flores offers new readings of texts such as the Nikāyas, the Dhammapada, the Heart Sutra, Zen koans, Shantideva’s Way of the Bodhisattva, and the Tiberã Book of the Dead. Understanding these works as literature deepens our sense of the unfolding of their teachings, of their exuberant histories, và of their relevance for contemporary life.“…a fascinating look at Buddhist literature in general … explores the drama, lyricism và storylines in Buddhist sacred literature while illustrating how rhetoric và ideology are at work in shaping the reader’s reactions … an interesting và thought-provoking book.” — Journal of the Buddhist Society“This book brings Buddhist texts up lớn the cấp độ of literature, as cultural texts worth reading for their own rhetorical qualities beyond their religious message.” — Francisca Cho, author of Everything Yearned For: Manhae’s Poems of Love sầu and LongingRalph Flores teaches literature at Thammasat University in Đất nước xinh đẹp Thái Lan và is the author of A Study of Allegory in Its Historical Context and Relationship to Contemporary Theory.
