Book Description

The theory of rasa enunciated by Bharata has stimulated both creativity and critical discourse in the Indian arts for nearly two thousands years. The text of the Natyasastra is as relevant to literature, poetry and drama as ut is to architecture, sculpture, painting, music and dance. Its comprehensive treatmentof artistic experience, expression and communication, content and form emerges from an integral vision which flowers as many branched tree of all the Indian arts. The analogy of the perennial flow of the river with its multiple streams, without loss of continuity and identity but potential for change and renewal makes this work as fresh as unconventional in its appraoch. It makes compelling reading for the specialist and the layer reader.
