Description

Indian Poetics

By Dr. G T Deshpande, Prof. Jayant Paranjpe

A Treatise On Poetics, Winner of the SAHITYA AKADEMI Award.

A student of literary aesthetics has to be a both a literary critic and a rasika, an ardent fan. Otherwise his studies are bound to be dry, academic exercises. Dr. Deshpande had a sharp critical faculty combined with a poetic sensibility. He was also a master of classical Sanskrit philosophy, aesthetics and literature. This gives his analysis a depth and an innovation which will delight the reader. His acclaimed works have never bored readers with rhetoric but invited readers on a journey of discovery.

Since literarture holds up a mirror to society it is natural that strands of spirituality, philosophy and other disciplines get entwined in a critical study of literary aesthetics. A holistic approach to studying this ancient art cannot be ignored. For example, when studying concepts like Alankar, Rasa or Dhwani, one can only arrive at their real meaning by tracing their historical development through thousands of years, because the same concepts have meant different things at different times. Most studies have been lacking in such an approach and this book hopes to fill that gap.

This book deals with different schools of thought on poetics and its concepts. These concepts are very relevant in contemporary studies in literarture.

This work was so far available in Marathi and in a Hindi translation. Now it is available in English, thanks to the painstaking efforts of Prof. Jayant Paranjape.
