Madhavadeva (1489-1596) was a saint, composer, poet, playwright and scholar. He was a religious reformer and the Mahapurusiya Vaisnavism in Assam owes a great deal to his organising ability, foresight and exemplary conduct. The lyrics of Madhavadeva have become a part of the religious life of Assam and a source of solace to distressed hearts for over four centuries. His plays delight and instruct both the lay and the learned.
Satyendranath Sarma (b. 1917), distinguished scholar and literary historian is the author of fifteen books in Assamese and four in English. He has been associated with a number of literary and academic bodies, including the Sahitya Akademi. He presents this monograph on Madhavadeva mainly for the non-Assamese reader.
