In this collection of Sanskrit verse, the late Daniel Ingalls provides English readers with a variety of poetry from the anthology of an 11th-century Buddhist scholar. Althought the style of poetry presented here originated at the royal courts, the book shows how it was adapted to all aspects of life, and came to address issues as diverse as love, sex, heroes, nature, and peace.

These flowering--seemingly easy--translations are delightful to read...'Blossoming of Love,' 'Love in Enjoyment,' and a few others, celebrate sex play that is sensuous and ecstatic, yet not lacking artistry and taste...'Characterizations,' 'Old Age,' 'the Hero,' various gods--on and on, there is an inexhaustible variety of subject, style, and tone...One is particularly grateful to Professor Ingalls for proving that it is delightful poetry even in translation...[He] carefully introduces Sanskrit poetry, as to form, metrics, imagery, poetics in general, so that one guesses the power and elegance possible in a tradition so subtly analyzed by its critics. Poetry Elegant and sophisticated poetry...this is a superb work. New York Times Book Review
