From the Jacket:

Indian writers have long been interested in the classification of heroes and heroines in well-defined types. Such classifications are typically developed in Sanskrit treatises such as Natyasastra, the Sahitya-Darpana, and Kama Sutra and in other works and later in vernacular literature of Hindustan, chiefly in Rasikapriya, Satsaiya, and the Bhasa-bhusana.
