Bhagavad-Gita and The English Romantic Movement: A Study in Influence
Bhagavad-Gita and The English Romantic Movement: A Study in Influence
Description
From the Jacket :

Bhagavad-Gita and the English Romantic Movement: A Study in Influence seeks to fill the need of bringing into limelight the contribution of India to the growth and enrichment of the English Romantic Movement. It establishes that the great 'Romantic Movement' was augmented by what is known as 'la renaissance Orientale' which took place at the end of the eighteenth century as a result of the research conducted by English orientalists such as Charles Wilkins, Sir William Jones, Francis Wilford, N.H. Kindersley, etc. It was represented at its best by the prose translation of the Gita by Charles Wilkins which was published in London in 1785 at the recommendation of Warren Hastings. The present book proves with the help of documented evidence that all the great romantics - Blake, Wordsworth, Coleridge, Southey, Shelley and Keats, had read Wilkins Gita and imbibed its spirit, which found creative expression in their great poems. It is a revolutionary study which provides a new dimension to the evolution of English Romantic poetry by stressing its Indian aspects which have remained hitherto unnoticed but ought to have received due critical attention.

About the Author :

Dr. Krishna Gopal Srivastava is Professor of English at the University of Allahabad. He has had a brilliant academic record throughout and has published several books and articles in India, England and America. His two articles on Aristotle's Doctrine of Tragic Catharsis, which appeared in The British Journal of Aesthetics (Summer 1972 and Spring 1975 respectively), brought him international fame. His rendering of 'Ode to a Nightingale' stands displayed in the reading room of the Oriental section of the Cambridge University Library.

I really LOVE you! Wonderful selections, prices and service. Thank you!
Tina, USA
This is to inform you that the shipment of my order has arrived in perfect condition. The actual shipment took only less than two weeks, which is quite good seen the circumstances. I waited with my response until now since the Buddha statue was a present that I handed over just recently. The Medicine Buddha was meant for a lady who is active in the healing business and the statue was just the right thing for her. I downloaded the respective mantras and chants so that she can work with the benefits of the spiritual meanings of the statue and the mantras. She is really delighted and immediately fell in love with the beautiful statue. I am most grateful to you for having provided this wonderful work of art. We both have a strong relationship with Buddhism and know to appreciate the valuable spiritual power of this way of thinking. So thank you very much again and I am sure that I will come back again.
