With 5,000 years of history, India is a culture united by diversity. Her literary traditions retlect her glory and heritage. Today, great works ike Ramayana, Mababharata and Jataka Tales echo throughout the world, having been portrayed in diverse art forms. Writings of the Indian subcontinent can be found in no less than 17 languages, and the scope of Indian literature is too vast to cover in its entirety. Nonetheless, we hope to provide in this volume a glimpse into India's ancient, pre-medieval, medieval and post-medieval literature. Gateway to Indian Classical Literature features the most famous poets and writers who not only influenced the masses but founded entirely new schools of thought. Each section introduces the seminal works of each era, and addresses its influence on contemporary literature. Through these pages, you will be transported into the world of deities and demons, light and darkness, and India's greatest aspirations and thoughts. ISBN:9789812294272
