Motilal Banarsidass, 1969 - 618 páginas
The Abhijnanasakuntalam is an unparalleled work of the great poet and playwright Kalidasa, the brightest star in the firmament of Indian poetry. No other composition of this poet displays more the richness of poetical genius, the warmth and play of fancy, the pro-found knowledge of human heart than this masterly production. It has found a place in Sir John Lubbock s Hund-red Best Books of the World. It has evoked sentiments of most enthusiastic admiration from western scholars. It furnishes a perpetual appeal to our heart. Its perusal sweetens the home atmosphere.
The present edition is unique in several essentials. The editor has adopted the most popular and appropriate version of the text. He has put the variants in the footnotes. He has added a short Sanskrit commentary, copious notes, an exhaustive introduction and several useful appendices. The English translation of the text is literal as well as idio-matic. The present edi-tion is a reprint of the ninth edition with addi-tion of an extract from the Mahabharata Shakuntalo-pakhyana which was omitted in the eighth and ninth editions and an appe-ndix No. VI at the end. It is hoped that this edition will meet the long-felt requirement of university students and the general readers alike.
