Sanskrit Studies, first published in 1954, is a collection of nine remarkable essays on Sanskrit language and literature by Prof. M. Hiriyanna. The learned professor gives a wonderful overview of one of the oldest and arguably the most sophisticated language in the world. He shows the development from the early Vedic poetry to the refined verses of classical Sanskrit – the earlier poetic works were inspired by nature and were deity-centric, while the later ones, inspired by human nature, became human-centric. Prof. Hiriyanna introduces to the reader the marvels of the great poets of the past, including Valmiki, Kalidasa, Bhasa, and Bhavabhuti.

About the Author

Mysore Hiriyanna (1871-1950) was a well-known Sanskrit professor and an authority on Indian philosophy and aesthetics. Intimately familiar with the classics of Sanskrit and English, Hiriyanna devoted his life to the cause of making clear and accessible the wisdom of ancient India. He set the standard for scholars writing about Indian subjects in English. All through his life he remained a quiet, humble, disciplined, and altruistic person who primarily sought to better himself as a human being.
