Epic and Argument in Sanskrit Literary History

This celebrates the distinguished career of the American Indologist Robert P. Goldman. The essays on Sanskrit literary history, which range from the danastutui in the Rgveda(Romila Thapar) to the transformation of literary theory in ninth-century Kashmir(Sheldon Pollock) to the practice of philology in seventeenth century Varanasi(Chirstopher Minkowski), reflect the wide range of interests of Professor Goldman himself, and the wide influence he has exerted on the field. Eight of the essays(by such leading scholars as Greg Bailey, John Brockington, James Fitzgerald, Luis Gonzalez-Reimann, PHyllis Granoff, Alf Hiltebeitel, Adheesh Sathaye, and Sally Sutherland Goldman), concentrate on the epics and Puranas, and as an ensemble make for essential reading on the genre of Sanskrit literature to which Goldman, as editor-in-chief of the Ramayana Translation Project, has devoted the greater part of his career. The scholarly essays are book ended by the survey of Professor Goldman's scholarly contributions(Deven Patel) and a lively personal reminiscence(Jeffery Moussaieff Masson)



Author Bio: Sheldon Pollock is Ransford Professor of Sanskrit and Indian Studies at Columbia University. He is general editor of the Murty Classical Library of India(Harvard University Press), and author of many other works.
