History of Indian Literature is a classic work covering the entire gamut of Indian secular and religious literature including epic, lyric, dramatic and didactic poetry, as well as narrative and scientific prose. It includes not only the large number of works of religious literature—hymns, sacrificial songs, incantations, myths and legends, sermons, theological treatises, polemical writings, manuals of instruction on ritual and religious discipline but also the lyrical and dramatic works, including the two great epics, the fairy-tales, fables, prose-narratives. The inclusion of this vast material, covering almost three thousand years of literary activity, could not be compressed into a single volume. Hence this was divided into two volumes by the author. Volume I includes, besides an introductory chapter, the Vedas, the Ramayana and the Mahabharata, the Puranas and the Tantras, while volume II Deals with the Buddhist and the Jaina literature with an index at the end of each volume. Printed Pages: 693.
