A Comprehensive Grammar of the Sanskrit Language: Analytical, Historical, and Lexicographical
Prosody Is At Once The Simplest And The Most Important Branch Of Sanskrit Grammar. Its Rules Do Not Depend On Authority. Any One With A Good Ear Accustomed To Read Sanskrit Is Able To Detect What Is Poetry, What Is Not Poetry, And Where There Is Break Of Poetry, In Whatever Garb It May Be Presented. The Book Utterly Ignores The Convenience Of Readers By Disregarding The Rules Of Punctuation And Divisions Of Poerty. This Volume Is Intended To Remove These Defects And Present Vedic And Classical Prosody In What Appears To Me The Clearest And Easiest Way. For Practical Purposes, It Is Not Necessary To Get By Heart The Minute Divisinons Of Sanskrit Classification. It Is Sufficient To Know The Ordinary Metres So As To Be Able To Read Common Verses With Ease And Proper Observance Of Pauses.
