Sanskrit Poetry, from Vidyākara's Treasury
In this rich collection of Sanskrit verse, the late Daniel Ingalls provides English readers with a wide variety of poetry from the vast anthology of an eleventh-century Buddhist scholar. Although the style of poetry presented here originated in royal courts, Ingalls shows how it was adapted to all aspects of life, and came to address issues as diverse as love, sex, heroes, nature and peace. More than thirty years after its original publication, "Sanskrit Poetry" continues to be the main resource for all interseted in this multifaceted and elegant tradition.
