Origin and Development of Sanskrit Literature

 
A.A. Macdonell (Author)
Synopsis The only book accessible to the English reader on the Origin and Development of Sanskrit Literature in general has hitherto been the translation of Professor Weber’s Academical Lectures on Indian Literature, as delivered nearly half a century ago at Berlin. The numerous and often very lengthy notes in this work supply the results of research during the next twenty-five years; but as these notes often modify, or even cancel, the statements of the unaltered original text of 1852, the result is bewildering to the student. Much new light has been thrown on various branches of Sanskrit literature since 1878, when the last notes were added to this translation, which, moreover, is not in any way adapted to the wants of the general reader. The only work on the subject appealing to the latter is the late Sir M. Monier-William’s Indian Wisdeom. That book, however, although it furnishes, in addition to the translated specimens, some account of the chief departments of Sanskrit literature. Is not a history. There is thus distinctly a twofold demand in this country for a history of Sanskrit literature. The student is in want of a guide setting forth in a clear and trustworthy manner the results of research down to the present time, and the cultivated English reader looks for a book presenting in an intelligible and attractive from information which much have a special interest to us owing to our close relations with India.
