In the history of Sanskrit literature Bhavabhuti is ranked second only to Kalidasa as a dramatist-poet. His three plays present an unequal literary phenomenon. Bhavabhuti writes with a passion and emotion of a poet. He expresses his content with abandon, but often reaches life at its very core. This monograph is quite comprehensive and it encompasses the personality of this poet-dramatist, his life and times, and the literary trends.
