Description

Priyadarsika, one of the best plays in Sanskrit literature, is composed in four acts during 7th century AD by Harsha. The theme of this drama has been taken from Gunadhya’s Brihatkatha (1st century AD). He adopts the theme of love intrigue on the same line as his great predecessor had done and embellishes it further by harmonizing the parts of the plot.

The action of the drama moves smoothly and there is noticeable ingenuity. The theme of the play is a love affair of King Udayana of Vatsa with Priyadarsika, daughter of King Dridhavarman.
