Elements of Poetry in The Mahabharata

 
Ram Karan Sharma (Author)
Synopsis This book represents the first attempt of its kind to present a detailed, systematic analysis of the Upamana dharmas (Tertia Comparationis) of the various objects of comparison found in the Mahabharata. It also critically examines the position of the Great Epic as a fascinating specimen of Oral poetic composition abounding, as it does, in the repetitions of the poetic formulae of the various categories. A study of some of the major figures of speech also provides an authoritative material useful for further research of the evolution of Tertia comparationis in the successive stages of Indian literary tradition.
