Rediscovering Ashoka The Great

Irwin Allan Sealy’s Asoca tells the story of an emperor from the subcontinent in third century BCE, a man we know as Ashoka the Great. Sealy has a delightful play on his name—ashoka and ashocha mean the same thing, effectively, but he attributes his preferred softer “ch” sound to the prince’s mother and her “socially” lower dialect. This gentle linguistic shift immediately places us in a position of intimacy with our hero, a man not as good-looking as his more appropriately birthed royal stepbrothers but with a far more glorious destiny.
