Description
About the Book

India not only has a very rich and uninterrupted tradition of poetry, but it also developed different forms of literature, including drama, and an equally ancient tradition of performing as well as plastic art forms. The Nafya:scistra of Bharata remains the source of the entire speculation on poetics and the theory of art and aesthetics.

Abhinavabharati, the only available commentary on the Natya:siistra is a monumental work on not only the theory of rasa but also on the concept of beauty in nature as well as art. At the same time, there are numerous texts available on music, dance, sculpture, architecture and so on, besides the huge material available in the Agamas and the Puranas. Indira Gandhi National Centre for the Arts (IGNCA), Regional Centre, Varanasi cherished an idea of exploring the possibilities of the pervasive theory of Indian aesthetics, which may embrace literature, theatre and all other art forms. With a desire to explore to what extent these theories may encompass the vast area of literature and arts, a special lecture series was planned and organized.

The present volume is an outcome of the lecture series. It is hoped that volume will be of immense interest to the connoisseurs of Indian art and aesthetics across the country and abroad. It should help them to relish the taste of various dimensions of Indian aesthetics.
