A History of Sanskrit Literature

Price : $12.75
ISBN # : 9788120800953

pages: 407
Edition : Paperback
Volumes : 1
Publisher : Motilal Banarsidass

The work presents a complete history of Sanskrit literature in a condensed and succinct form. It embodies a general study of the Vedic, Epic, Puranic, classical and philosophical literature. It sheds light on the life and thought of Ancient and Medieval India as reflected in the literary productions of those periods. Through the brief epitome given in the Appendix on Technical Literature including Law, Science and Arts it provides information both interesting and instructive. The bibliographical notes and index appended at the end add to the value and render the work most useful to the reader. Even in this age of advanced historiography when even the outstanding researches of eminent antiquarians have become outdated, the utility of this small work has not diminished by the passing away of the three quarters of a century.



Author Bio: Arthur Anthony Macdonell born in India was educated at Gottingen University. He matriculated in 1876 at Corpus Christi College, Oxford, and gained a three scholarships for German. Chinese, and the Boden Scholarship for Sanskrit.
