Epic and Argument in Sanskrit Literary History: Essays in Honour of Robert P. Goldman
Epic and Argument in Sanskrit Literary History: Essays in Honour of Robert P. Goldman
Description
From the Jacket

Epic and Argument in Sanskrit Literary History celebrates the distinguished career of the American Indologist Robert P. Goldman. The essays on Sanskrit literary history, which range from the danastuti in the Rgveda (Romila Thapar) to the transformation of literary theory in ninth-century Kashmir (Sheldon Pollock) to the practice of philology in seventeenth-century Varanasi (Christopher Minkowski), reflect the wide range of interests of Professor Goldman himself, and the wide influence he has exerted on the field. Eight of the essays (by such leading scholars as Greg Bailey, John Brockington, James Fitzgerald, Luis Gonzalez-Reimann, Phyllis Granoff, Alt Hiltebeitel, Adheesh Sathaye, and Sally Sutherland Goldman), concentrate on the epics and Puranas, and as an ensemble make for essential reading on the genre of Sanskrit literature to which Goldman, as editor-in-chief of the Ramayana Translation Project, has devoted the greater part of his career. The scholarly essays are bookended by the survey of Professor Goldman’s scholarly contributions (Deven Patel) and a lively personal reminiscence (Jeffrey Moussaieff Masson).

He is general editor of the Murty Classical Library of India (Harvard University Press), and author of, among other books, The Language of the Gods in the World of Men: Sanskrit, Culture, and Power in Premodern India (University of California Press). He is currently working on Liberation Philology (Harvard University Press) and Reader on Rasa: An Historical Sourcebook in Indian Aesthetics, for a new series of sourcebooks in classical Indian thought that he is editing for Columbia University Press.
