The Natyasastra: English translation with critical Notes

Price: $22.37

Edition: Fifth Edition

Seller ID: 016636

The Natyasastra is probably one of the earliest and certainly one of the best treatises on Indian Dramaturgy. At the same time, the book available now is not an early one but may be as late as the seventh or eighth century AD. The authorship is traditionally ascribed to Bharata, the Sage. The eminence of Natyasastra is not that it was the first book on the subject but that it was the first comprehensive treatise on Dance, Drama and Music. Like the Mahabharata, Natyasastra too boasts that "What is found here may be found elsewhere. But what is not here cannot be found anywhere". To conf... View more info

Bharata's Natyasastra, the earliest treatise on dramatics, is, even today, the origin of our dramatic tradition. Besides being the most important study of dramatics, it is also the most comprehensive. The all-inclusive quality, however, creates problems for the reader who has to go through a great deal of unnecessary information. In his Introduction to Bharata's Natyasastra, the author has culled all information essential and relevant to drama, eliminating the superfluous. Eschewing attempt to provide any kind of a scholarly or original interpretation of Bharata's views, the author has focused... View more info

One of the most popular and widely performed dance styles in India and around the world, bharata natyam has made the transition from its beginnings in the temples and courts of southern India to a highly respected international dance practice. In this study of a classical dance form, author Janet O'Shea tracks the choreographic transformations that accompanied the transfer of bharata natyam to the urban concert stage in the 1930s and 1940s. At Home in the World situates these changes within the political debates of their time and ties the concerns of this period to present- day practice. The h... View more info

The Classical Dances and Costumes of India by Kay Ambrose steers clear of the twin evils of writing; the learned writing for the learned and the dilettante writing for others of his class. It treats the four classical schools of Indian dance-Bharata Natyam, Kathakali, Kathak and Manipuri-with understanding and objectivity. The reader is provided with a sketch of Indian mythology and music before he is exposed to the dances proper, which are presented in such a manner that none will experience any difficulty in learning the divine and mundane aspects of these schools of dance.

The rhythms of Tamil Brahmin culture integrate creativity, self-expression and collective identity in various processes of life at one level and merge with the universal rhy... View more info
