The Literary Semantics of Kalidasa: A Pragmatic Approach

H.L. Shukla (Author)
Synopsis In this work Professor H.L. Shukla deals with some of the burning questions posed by literary criticism in our time. The author lays special stress on the part played by Kalidasa in the literary process and his contribution to the intellectual life to Indian Society. The Literary Semantics offers the hope of methodological support when problems arise which necessitate answers from several branches of learning, each of whose method seems incompatible with that of the other, or when the envisaged research is multidimensional and the dimensions call for different categories which in the final instance should be congruous, or simply when this insight in Kalidasa is to be complemented. This contribution is naturally aimed at Sanskritists, but also at everyone who wishes to become familiar with the pragmatic concepts of experience, perceiving, understanding, describing and interpreting the literary semantics of Kalidasa in particular and literary criticism in general.
