This book compares and contrasts the characters and Mother Nature depicted by the poets and dramatists in the treatment of love in Sanskrit and Tamil literature.

While both these literatures accept the hero and the heroine as the main characters in the drama of love, others like the harlot who contributes to the "love triangle" the friends of the hero and the heroine as well as their relatives, dependants and a number of other people have their own role in providing the cultural and social restrictions or encouragement that develops the emotion fully. The influence of landscape and the seasons on lovers and the use of imagery and alamkara to convey emotion in a manner culturally acceptable are also examined.

Looking at Sanskrit and Tamil literature composed between 200 B. C. and 500 A. D. this book identifies areas of inherent similarities and mutual influence between two of the oldest literatures two of the oldest literatures of India.
