Written by the greatest of the ancient Indian playwrights, this 5th-century work of Sanskrit drama offers a classic introduction to Indian theater and aesthetics. A king encounters a lovely maiden by chance, and the course of their passionate love sweeps the audience from a forest hermitage to a dazzling palace to ethereal celestial realms.
Unabridged republication of the Arthur W. Ryder translation as published by E. P. Dutton & Co., New York, 1912.
