Formatted Abstract/Summary
This chapter will provide a regional perspective on Kakawins from Bali that are linked to this enduring Rāmāyaṇa tradition. This survey will take us far from the origins of the KR in ninth-century Java, and even further from any consideration of the specific linguistic and stylistic influences of Sanskrit on Old Javanese. Instead, it will explore Kakawin representations of the Rāmāyaṇa story at the far end of the chain of transmission. Most of these Kakawin were composed from the late eighteenth century onwards although the earliest examples may date from the sixteenth century. Because of the crucial role that Balinese manuscript traditions have played in the development and preservation of Old Javanese literature more generally, it will also touch on the continuities that can be traced in the adaptation and evolution of textual knowledge shared between Java and Bali over the longer term.
