9780143101369: Subh‚shit‚vali: An Anthology of Comic, Erotic and Other Verse

A tapestry of miniature verses from classical Sanskrit. This selection from the Subhâshitâvali, a celebrated verse anthology compiled by Vallabhadeva in c. fifteenth-century Kashmir, offers a rich variety of erotic poetry and a wealth of lyrical and gnomic verse. One section is given to earthy humour and cynical satire seldom available in English renditions. Also included are invocations and

allegories, panegyrics and pen-pictures, sage observations and stark musings. The sweep of these verses is matched by the eclectic array of contributors-from illustrious poets like Vyasa and Valmiki,

Kalidasa and Bana to others now mostly forgotten.
