Editorial Reviews

Review

These flowering--seemingly easy--translations are delightful to read...'Blossoming of Love,' 'Love in Enjoyment,' and a few others, celebrate sex play that is sensuous and ecstatic, yet not lacking artistry and taste...'Characterizations,' 'Old Age,' 'the Hero,' various gods--on and on, there is an inexhaustible variety of subject, style, and tone...One is particularly grateful to Professor Ingalls for proving that it is delightful poetry even in translation...[He] carefully introduces Sanskrit poetry, as to form, metrics, imagery, poetics in general, so that one guesses the power and elegance possible in a tradition so subtly analyzed by its critics. (Poetry)

Elegant and sophisticated poetry...this is a superb work. (New York Times Book Review)

Format: Paperback
I am compelled to respond to the previous review suggesting a zero rating. Let's start with a few facts. Daniel H.H. Ingalls may very well have been the greatest Sanskritist of the 20th century. Harvard's Wales Professor for more than thirty odd years, he mentored more than he wrote but his fine scholarship in Indology is considered among the greatest efforts of our age, including this beautiful collection from the Subhasitaratnakosa. I would recommend you ignore the maglinantly ignorant, impenetrably stupid review above and read this as one of the most authentic and valuable contributions to Sanskrit literature in translation currently available.
