Savitri - From Epic Poem to Stage Plays: Translation and Adaptation, Translation Issues, and the Passage From India
Lelanuja, Orada

2005, Master of Arts, Miami University, Theatre.
This thesis is a translation thesis of a classical Thai play called Savitri. It was written by King Vajiravudh of Siam and it is based on a story in the Indian epic The Mahabharata. The play was translated from Thai to English, and it was adapted into a 13 minute version in a storytelling approach. Along with the translation and adaptation, this thesis also includes a chapter on translation theories which contains the translator’s issues in the translating process and the theories of translation. Since the tale of Savitri is originally from India, there is also a chapter on how the Indian culture, literature, and traditions, including the epic Mahabharata traveled to Thailand and how they affect Thai people and culture.
