Description

About The Book:

Kalidasa is honoured as India's National Poet, par excellence, and the greatest spokesman of her cultural heritage. Though he wrote in Sanskrit, his influence has been profound on all the literatures of India. He has never been excelled. This treatise presents a glimpse of the masterpoet in the light of scholarship upto date in a language appealing even to the general reader. It offer a critical-analytical survey of all his works from the perspective of Indian poetics and reveals Kalidasa as a universal poet of nature, love and humanism in general and as an embodiment of Indian ethos in particular.

About The Author:

Keralapura Krishnamoorthy (born 1923) had a brilliant academic career at the University of Mysore and served as Professor and Head of the Department of Sanskrit in the Karnataka University, Dharwad from 1959 to 1984. His well known publications include Dhvanyaloka text critically edited (1982), Vakroktijivita text criticially edited (1977), monograph on Kalidasa (1972) and on Banabhatta (1977), and independent works like Essays in Sanskrit Criticism (1979) and critical edition of Bharata's Natayasastra with Abhinavabharati.

Fantastic! Thank You for amazing service and fast replies!

I’ve started receiving many of the books I’ve ordered and every single one of them (thus far) has been fantastic - both the books themselves, and the execution of the shipping. Safe to say I’ll be ordering many more books from your website :)

I received the kaftan today via FedEx. Your care in sending the order, packaging and methods, are exquisite. You have dressed my body in comfort and fashion for my constrained quarantine in the several kaftans ordered in the last 6 months. And I gifted my sister with one of the orders. So pleased to have made a connection with you.
