Concept of Dance in Classical Sanskrit Literature
Concept of Dance in Classical Sanskrit Literature
Description

From the Jacket:

The rich tradition of Sanskrit literature reveals the most sublime and brightest aspects of Indian culture. Dance and drama have always played a vital role in the development of art traditions and we have a long history of sustained growth of these arts. The valuable research work by Dr. Hegde presents a sound analysis of the perspective of Abhinaya evinced in Sanskrit drama. The author had given authentic references to the techniques of performance. The graphs and figures of hand-postures, eye-gestures, steps etc. provided in the last chapter of this book have enhanced its value as a reference work for the study of dance-techniques and their interrelation with Sanskrit literature.
