Publisher: London, UK, Routledge: 2008

ISBN: 0415480051

Condition: New


This book maps the journey of the Indian poetic imagination—in Hindi, Panjabi and Indian English—from its original quasi-spiritual longings to its activist interventions in the public domain. As Indian poetry of the post-1990s gravitates towards a non-Orientalised postcolonial nationalism, it seeks to rewrite and disseminate the shifting coordinates of nationalist imagination in terms of the dissent of the subaltern discontents of the nation. The book is interdisciplinary: it studies Indian poetry from the new emerging imperatives of postcolonialism, new historiography (subaltern, dalit a... View more info

This book is both an introduction to Sanskrit and an investigation into the relationship between nine basic affective states (bhava) and the form they take in the absence of self-interest (tatasthya) according to the theory of Indian aesthetics as developed in the Dhvanyaloka and the Abhinavabharati. To illustrate the process of aesthetic appreciation the different categories of suggestion (dhvani) in a continuous twelfth century poetic text (kavya), and the various forms of aesthetic experience (rasa) which the suggestions initiate, are analysed consecutively. The aspects of culture, mytholog... View more info

The period in modern Hindi literature known as 'Chayavad' marked the first blossoming of poetry in the language which, for its originality, depth, and technical resourcefulness, still remains unsurpassed. This anthology provides a sampling of the works of four major poets of this revival--Jayshankar Prasad, Suryakant Tripathi 'Nirala', Sumitranandan Pant, and Mahadevi Varma. Like the Romantic age in the West, Chayavad was marked with elements of symbolism and mysticism. Upa nishadic teachings, the English Romantic poets, the French Symbolists, Rabindranath Tagore, Sanskrit aesthetics--all inf... View more info

Edition: First Indian Edition

This volume is a study of the two concepts of Sanskrit Alamkara viz., Guna and Riti which are intimately allied to each other, in the different creative writers of the Sastra from Bharata down to Jagannatha. In tracing the development of the Riti-Guna theory, it has been the aim of the author, to utilise all available sources-printed texts as well as manuscripts-and he has based his deductions from the writings of different theories only after close, careful and critical observations of the various points in their treatment of these topics.
