About The Book

This book presents, in a creative English translation, the Malayalam classic by Unnayiwarrier. The Nala charitham is the playscript, as it were, of the Kathakali rendering of the story of Nalaand Damayanthi. Since it's first performance in 1751, it has established itself as a classic not merely of astonishing literary value but a rich source-test for Kathakali as it exists to a day. The text is supplimented by a detailed introduction to the work, and by a critical commentary on each of the four parts.

His mother was warrier lady and father a Namboothiri whose name is not recorded. He achieved deep insight in Vedantham, Ayurveda and Music. Warrier is widely cherished for his immortal work Nalacharitham. And also some scholars have imputed two works to his credit Ramapanchasathi- a Sanskrit piece and Girija Kalyanam- an epic poem in Manipravalam. In Ramapanchasathi on Sreerama stated that the author was a flower garland maker at Koodalmanikyam temple, lrinjalakuda. He died at the age of Sixty One.
