This book represents the first attempt of its kind to present a detailed,

systematic analysis of the Upamana dharmas (Tertia Comparationis) of the

various objects of comparison found in the Mahabharata. It also critically

examines the position of the Great Epic as a fascinating specimen of Oral

poetic composition abounding, as it does, in the repetitions of the poetic

formulae of the various categories. A study of some of the major figures of

speech also provides an authoritative material useful for further research

of the evolution of Tertia comparationis in the successive stages of Indian

literary tradition.
