Regarded as the most important figure in the Classical Sanskrit literary canon, Kalidasa was a poet and playwright who likely lived in the fifth century AD. This collection brings together some of Kalidasa's most well-regarded dramatic works, including the timeless story of Shakuntala, a beautiful maiden who was abandoned at birth and raised in a remote hermitage. Though she later enchants a powerful king who desires to take the young woman as his bride, Shakuntala must overcome a series of obstacles before she can reign as queen

There is a city called Benares where Shiva lives. It is loved by pious people like the soil of Mount Kailasa. The river of heaven shines there like a pearl necklace.

He had a son named Thunderbolt who broke the pride of the love-god by his beauty, and the pride of men by his bravery

The recognition of Shakúntala by Kālidāsa( Book )

2 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 24 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
