Vasavadatta of Subandhu: (A Sanskrit Romance)
SKU: 9788120816756 Categories: Books, Literature Tags: Literature, Literature,Motilal Banarsidass, Motilal Banarsidass
This romance is one of the best examples of the artificial and ornate style in Sanskrit prose. The title is derived from that of a drama by Bhasa, the Suapnavasavadattam.
Subandhu,s translator has genereously — claimed for him a true melody in the long rolling compound, a sesquipedalian majesty which can never be equalled exept in Sanskrit, a lulling music in the alliteration, and a compact brevity in the paronomasias which are in most cases veritable gems of terseness and twofold appropriateness.
