Description
Information
Written in the twelfth century, the Naisadhiyacarita ( The Adventures of Nala, King of Nisadha) is a seminal Sanskrit poem beloved by South Asian literary communities for nearly a millennium. This volume introduces readers to the poem's author, his reading communities, the modes through which the poem has been read and used, the contexts through which it became canonical, its literary offspring, and the emotional power it still holds for the culture that values it. The study privileges the intellectual, affective, and social forms of cultural practice informing a region's people and institutions. It treats literary texts as traditions in their own right and draws attention to the critical genres and actors involved in their reception.
