About The Book:

Banabhatta is the celebrated author Kadambari and Harshacharita, masterpieces in Sanskrit literature. Though his supremacy as a grand stylist, as a master over the elaborate phrase and poetic image, has never been questioned, his habitual sublimity of style, his very forte, has been an impediment to a just appreciation of his works.

This monograph is a modest attempt to remove hindrances to the enjoyment of a great epic stylist, a sublime poet in prose, a visionary ranging his eye across climes and lives, a humanist with a profound message to mankind.

Though the book is mainly designed for the general reader scholar also may find it of refreshing interest.
