Description
About The Book

This book deals with the life and works of Varanasi Dharmasuri, poet, critic, poetician and philosopher who lived in the late fifteenth and sixteenth centuries in Andhra Pradesh. His Sahityaratnakara, a treatise on poetics, is perhaps the last major work on Alankara sastra barring the Rasagangadhara. It is divided into ten tarangas and arranged in the form a karika, followed by a vrtti, and then an example from the pen of the author, Dharmasuri. These examples are all in praise of Sri Rama. Two commentaries on the Sahityaratnakara, namely Nauka and Mandara, are available. In the present book, the author, Prof. B. Narasimhacharyulu discusses the identity of Dharmasuri (who later took the sannyasa asrama and the name Ramananda Sarasvati), his works, and critically appraise the work Sahityaratnakara. Prof. B Narasimhacharyulu shows the development of major concepts of Poetics from Bharata’s time to Dharmasuri and highlights where Dharmaduri agrees or differs with his predecessors and the reason thereof. The more important comparisons are summarized in tables.

Thank you very much. Your sale prices are wonderful.

Kailash Raj’s art, as always, is marvelous. We are so grateful to you for allowing your team to do these special canvases for us. Rarely do we see this caliber of art in modern times. Kailash Ji has taken the Swaminaryan monks’ suggestions to heart and executed each one with accuracy and a spiritual touch.
