In the field of Sanskrit literature, no other event has probably been of as great significance as the discovery, in 1909 by Mm. Dr. T. Ganapati Sastri, of the thirteen plays ascribed to Bhasa. With that discovery, Bhasa, who was till then a mere name mentioned in passing by poets, dramatists and anthologists, became not only a reality but one of the most luminous stars in the Sanskrit literary galaxy. In this little over half a century, hundreds of critiques, big and small, have poured forth on the works of Bhasa, but it would be admitted on all hands that the present work, Bhasa-A Study, by Dr. A.D. Pusalker, is the most detailed and comprehensive, written with understanding and authority. First published in 1940, this work has come to be considered as almost the last word on the subject. That such an eminent scholar as Dr. A.B. Keith has contributed the Foreword to it is in itself a testimony to the high quality of the book. The book is divided into two sections: The first is concerned with the Bhasa Problem and discusses at length the question of authenticity, authorship and date, besides examining and estimating the literary excellence of each of the plays. The second, bigger than the first, takes a yet different line of research. It paints the social conditions of the time of Bhasa as revealed from his works and would, therefore, be of absorbing interest even to those whose concern transcends literature. In addition, the present second edition is brought up to date being supplemented by two new chapters, one of which surveys the recent material on Bhasa and the other is on the Yajnaphala. In short, the book is a beacon-light to the students of Bhasa in particular and Sanskrit literature and drama in general. Printed Pages: 640.
