Bhagavad-Gita and The English Romantic Movement: A Study in Influence
Bhagavad-Gita and The English Romantic Movement: A Study in Influence
Description
From the Jacket :

Bhagavad-Gita and the English Romantic Movement: A Study in Influence seeks to fill the need of bringing into limelight the contribution of India to the growth and enrichment of the English Romantic Movement. It establishes that the great 'Romantic Movement' was augmented by what is known as 'la renaissance Orientale' which took place at the end of the eighteenth century as a result of the research conducted by English orientalists such as Charles Wilkins, Sir William Jones, Francis Wilford, N.H. Kindersley, etc. It was represented at its best by the prose translation of the Gita by Charles Wilkins which was published in London in 1785 at the recommendation of Warren Hastings. The present book proves with the help of documented evidence that all the great romantics - Blake, Wordsworth, Coleridge, Southey, Shelley and Keats, had read Wilkins Gita and imbibed its spirit, which found creative expression in their great poems. It is a revolutionary study which provides a new dimension to the evolution of English Romantic poetry by stressing its Indian aspects which have remained hitherto unnoticed but ought to have received due critical attention.

About the Author :

Dr. Krishna Gopal Srivastava is Professor of English at the University of Allahabad. He has had a brilliant academic record throughout and has published several books and articles in India, England and America. His two articles on Aristotle's Doctrine of Tragic Catharsis, which appeared in The British Journal of Aesthetics (Summer 1972 and Spring 1975 respectively), brought him international fame. His rendering of 'Ode to a Nightingale' stands displayed in the reading room of the Oriental section of the Cambridge University Library.

Testimonials
I received the Green Tara Thangka described below right on schedule. Thank you a million times for that. My teacher loved it and was extremely moved by it. Although I have seen a lot of Green Tara thangkas, and have looked at other Green Tara Thangkas you offer and found them all to be wonderful, the one I purchased is by far the most beautiful I have ever seen -- or at least it is the one that most speaks to me.
John, USA
Your website store is a really great place to find the most wonderful books and artifacts from beautiful India. I have been traveling to India over the last 4 years and spend 3 months there each time staying with two Bengali families that I have adopted and they have taken me in with love and generosity. I love India. Thanks for doing the business that you do. I am an artist and, well, I got through I think the first 6 pages of the book store on your site and ordered almost 500 dollars in books... I'm in trouble so I don't go there too often.. haha.. Hari Om and Hare Krishna and Jai.. Thanks a lot for doing what you do.. Great !
