Description
PREFACE TO THE FIRST EDITION

This edition of Sri Harsadeva's Priyadarsika is prepared on the same lines as my editions of the Ratnavali and the Nagananda that have been already published, with a view to supply the University student with a text-book that will meet all his requirements. Care has also been taken to make the book useful to the general reader as well. A brief but sufficiently explanatory new commentary in Sanskrit has been added containing the solutions of difficult compounds, derivations of difficult words, etc. etc. Another feature of this edition is the Introduction wherein all that is necessary to be known about the author and the play has been succinctly put together for ready reference and systematic study. The figures of speech and the various technicalities of Sanskrit dramaturgy are not given (except in a few cases) as they are not of much use to the junior University student. I have used the editions of Jivananda Vidyasagar, V. D. Gadre (1884), Pandit R.V. Krisnamachariar (1906), T. V. Sreenivasachariar (1908) and that published by the Columbia University 1923; and I am beholden to the editors of all these for help of one kind or another derived from them, specially to those of the last mentioned work. My thanks are also due to Mr. L. S. Bhandare B.A.S.T.C. who helped me in writing out the later part of introduction. Any suggestions as to improvement etc. will be gratefully received.

ABOUT THE BOOK

Priyadarsika of Sriharsadeva

Ed. M. R. Kale

The Priyadarsika is a romantic comedy in four acts and is named after the heroine, the daughter of Drdhavarman, King of Anga.

The plot of Priyadarsika is derived from the semi-legendary life of King Udayana as given in the Brhatkatha of Gunadhva. The story of the loves of Udayana also known as Vatsaraja, and of his romantic adventures seems to have been exceedingly popular in ancient India as is evident from the references to it by many Sanskrit poets.

It contains an exhaustive introduction, a short but sufficiently explanatory, a short but sufficiently explanatory commentary in Sanskrit, various readings, a literal English translation, copious notes and useful appendices.

Fantastic! Thank You for amazing service and fast replies!
Sonia, Sweden
I’ve started receiving many of the books I’ve ordered and every single one of them (thus far) has been fantastic - both the books themselves, and the execution of the shipping. Safe to say I’ll be ordering many more books from your website :)

I received the kaftan today via FedEx. Your care in sending the order, packaging and methods, are exquisite. You have dressed my body in comfort and fashion for my constrained quarantine in the several kaftans ordered in the last 6 months. And I gifted my sister with one of the orders. So pleased to have made a connection with you.
