Ramayana by Narahari, better known as Kumara Valmiki is the first adoption of entire
Ramayana in Kannada by a Vaidic poet. It is a voluminous work consisting 112 sections
and approximately 5000 poems composed in Bhamini Shatpadi meter. Not much is known
about the antecedents of this poet. This work is influenced occasionally by Adhyatma
Ramayana even though it is essentially a reproduction of the Sanskrit epic by Valmiki.
The stylistic influence of Kumaravyasa and Kalidasa is evident. In this work, the
story of Ramayana is narrated to Parvathi by Shiva. Ravana retains shades of a tragic
hero. This work is a simple narrative with out literary ambitions.
Narahari has also written another work called “Airvana
Kalaga’ which again in an episode from Ramayana composed in four sections (Sandhi)
consisting of 296 poems.
