Description

This edition contains all the eight cantos of the poem, which is named after the chief incident of the theme, viz the birth of Kumara, the War-god.

The most important Kavyas of Kalidas - Raghuvamsa and Kumarsambhava - are distinguished by their independence of treatment and excellence of poetical beauty. The Kumarsambhava varies from the loveliness of spring and the delights of married love to the utter desolation induced by the death of beloved. The subject is unquestionably a daring one : the events which bring about the marriage of Lord Siva to Uma and the birth of Skanda.

The prose order of each sloka has been given in the commentary by using bold type, the words not actually repeated by Mallinatha being enclosed within rectangular brackets. The notes explain allusions, grammatical peculiarities not noticed by Mallinatha, copious extracts from other commentaries being given for this purpose. The book includes text, the commentary of Mallinatha, a literal English translation, notes and introduction.
