    This book offers fresh insights into the ancient Hindu religious text, the Rig Veda.
    Through a textual analysis inspired by the theoretical framework of French literary critic René Girard, it reveals the hidden similarities between the Hindu scriptures and the works of Shakespeare.
    An appendix (newly added to this revised and enlarged 2nd edition) reproduces the four creation hymns at the center of the book’s attention.
