About the Tamil Edition
Our translation will rely on the Tamil edition of Kampaṉ’s Rāmāyaṇa published by the U.V.Swaminatha Iyer Library (UVS) between 1951-1967. We will also consult the critical edition published by Annamalai University Press (AUP) between 1955 and 1970. The UVS library has granted permission to reprint the Tamil text in our facing page translations published by the Murty Classical Library.
Our project will not produce a third edition or seek to resolve differences between the two editions. Instead, we will note variants in text-critical notes.
