The Poriade – Adventures of Porus

(by Srila Bhaktivinoda Thakura)

The Poriade was a poem in classical English about the wanderings of Porus (Puru), who fought Alexander the Great in the pre-Christian era. The Ṭhākura had planned to write a twelve-part series, but this was never completed. He only managed to complete two books. At present, only the first book is available from the British Library.
