This book studies the various forms, techniques and resources of literature and seeks to define its Nature and function. In various chapters, the author examines certain concepts in Sanskrit poetics in relation to parallel concepts in the Graeco-Roman Tradition and discusses literary theory in relation to psycho-analysis.The poetics of Literature has experienced and absorbed a variety of revolutions in its chequered History from Plato to Derrida. But few of these revolutions have affected students of literature more abidingly than those discussed in this volume. Bharata and Aristotle, Kshemendra anda Horace, and, Freud and Jung are still contemporary with us. We simply cannot do without them if we ever cared to be remembered by posterity for our understanding and enjoyment of literature.Printed Pages: 206.
