The fourth treats of the divisions of poetry. The fifth discusses fully a power of a word called Vyanjana. The sixth treats of the division of poetry into Drsya ('that which is to be seen') and Sravya ('that which is to be seen') and Sravya ('that which is to be heard'). The seventh treats of blemishes (Dosa). The eitht deals with the merits (Guna), viz. sweetness (Madhurya), Energy (Ojah), and perspicuity (Prasada). In the ninth section four styles (Riti), viz.
