Description
About the Book

If Nannaya Bhattaraka of the 11th century AD is considered as the first and foremost Telugu poet, Palkuriki Somanatha of the 12th century is regarded as a pioneer and an epoch maker because Somanatha's major works- Basava Purana and Panditaradhya Charitra -are original Telugu texts whereas Nannaya's work is a translation of the Sanskrit Vyasa Maha Bharata. Nannaya used mostly Sanskrit metres whereas Palkuriki wrote in "Janu Telugu" style and used "Dwipada" a desi metre. It is said that Palkuriki first introduced the life of Lord Basava, a Karnataka prophet, to the world prior to Harihara. He is a classical poet par excellence who was a shining beacon to his successors. He wrote Basava Purana and Panditaradhya Charitra in Telugu and Somanatha Bhashya in Sanskrit. In Vrisadhipa Sataka he wrote poems in his co-eval 12th century Indian languages like Tamil, Kannada, Marathi, Malayalam (Manipravala) Sanskrit etc. Thus Somanatha stands on a paramount pedestal in Indian classical literature!
