Description

This book has inspired many scholars to study the numerous works on Alankara, to produce papers dealing with several aspects of Alankarasastra and to publish several important texts. The author has made substantial additions and changes in this edition and has included new material.

The History of Alankara Literature can naturally be divided into two parts. The first part would have to be devoted to an account of the important works on the Alankarasastra, a brief analysis of the contents and the chronology of writers on the Alankarasastra and other kindred matters. More space would have to be devoted to early writers. The second part would comprise a review of the subjects that fall to be treated under the Alankarasastra, attempts to show how from very small beginnings various theories about Poetics and literary criticism were evolved, dilate upon the different aspects of an elaborate theory of Poetics and trace the history of, literary theories in India.
