Love in Sanskrit and Tamil Literature: A Study of Characters and Nature (200B.C.-A.D.500)
Love in Sanskrit and Tamil Literature: A Study of Characters and Nature (200B.C.-A.D.500)
Description
From the Jacket

This book compares and contrasts the characters and Mother Nature depicted by the poets and dramatists in the treatment of love in Sanskrit and Tamil literature.

While both these literatures accept the hero and the heroine as the main characters in the drama of love, others like the harlot who contributes to the "love triangle" the friends of the hero and the heroine as well as their relatives, dependants and a number of other people have their own role in providing the cultural and social restrictions or encouragement that develops the emotion fully. The influence of landscape and the seasons on lovers and the use of imagery and alamkara to convey emotion in a manner culturally acceptable are also examined.

Looking at Sanskrit and Tamil literature composed between 200 B. C. and 500 A. D. this book identifies areas of inherent similarities and mutual influence between two of the oldest literatures two of the oldest literatures of India.

Associate Professor Dr. (Mrs.) Devapoopathy Nadarajah has been on the academic staff of the Department of Indian Studies, University of Malaya since 1966 after a short stint as a school teacher. A Malaysian, she is fluent in Tamil, English and Bahasa Malaysia. She lectures courses related to Indian culture and tradition, Tamil literature and Sanskrit language and literature.

Her knowledge of Tamil and Sanskrit has been the source of many research articles in comparative Indian literature like "Some Tamil Literary Conventions Found in Kalidasa's Meghadutam", "Kaman in Classical Tamil Literature" and "Some Marutam Poems", to mention a few.

Actively involved in some of the leading Shaivite institutions in her country, she has been awarded the title of "Saiva Siddhanta Kalanithi" by the Guru Manasannidhana of Dharmapuram, Tamil Nadu.

Kailash Raj’s art, as always, is marvelous. We are so grateful to you for allowing your team to do these special canvases for us. Rarely do we see this caliber of art in modern times. Kailash Ji has taken the Swaminaryan monks’ suggestions to heart and executed each one with accuracy and a spiritual touch.
