15 editions published between 2001 and 2012 in English and Sanskrit and held by 306 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The play Shakuntala was one of the first examples of Indian literature to be read in translation in Europe. Shakuntala's story is a leitmotiv that recurs in many works of Indian literature and culminates in the master Kali-dasa's drama for the stage." "The virtuous heroine is forgotten by her betrothed, the king Dushyanta, only to be refound thanks to a distinguishing signet ring discovered by a fisherman in the belly of one of his catch. The final act distills the essence of human forgiveness, in Shakuntala's gracious release of her husband from his guilt."--Jacket

The birth of Kumāra by Dasa Kali( Book )

9 editions published in 2005 in English and Sanskrit and held by 240 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This court epic describes events leading up to but not including the birth of Kumara (also known as Skanda or Karttikeya), the war god destined to defeat the demon Taraka." "The gods attempt to deploy Kama, the Indian Cupid, to set the ascetic supreme deity Shiva on fire with love for Uma (also known as Parvati), the daughter of the god of the Himalayan mountain range. Kama's mission fails, and Shiva, roused from his meditative trance, turns his flaming third eye on the love god, burning him to ashes. Next, Parvati herself turns to intense asceticism in order to win spiritual power and thereby the husband for whom she longs. She succeeds, and the climax of the poem is Shiva and Parvati's marriage and cosmic lovemaking, and Kumara's divine conception."--Jacket

How Úrvashi was won by Kālidāsa( Book )

8 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 156 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Here is a new Clay Sanskrit Library translation of Kali-dasa's How Urvashi Was Won." "One of the three surviving plays by Kali-dasa (fifth century), universally acknowledged as the supreme poet in classical Sanskrit, How Urvashi Was Won, like the other two, is a masterpiece of lyricism, subtle characterization, and the working through of a bold theme, How Urvashi Was Won is the story of King Puru-ravas and his love for an immortal, the dancer Urvashi, who normally lives in the heaven of the gods but who has come down to earth in order to realize her passion for the all-too-mortal king. The tragic love of this asymmetrical couple was described already in the ancient "Rig Veda" and later often expanded. Kali-dasa has reworked the narrative so as to depict a goddess in the process of becoming fully, and dangerously, human - since only human beings (at their best) are, in Kali-dasa's vision, truly capable of the depths and intricacies of loving." "This great work of love, loss, and eventual restoration speaks ti the human condition generally in highly nuanced verses, accessible to any modern reader." --Book Jacket
