Drama and Ritual of Early Hinduism

Front Cover
Motilal Banarsidass Publ., 1994 - Hindu drama - 141 pages
Drama and Ritual of Early Hinduism sets out to explore the foundations of theatre in ritual practice. In a careful, systematic way Lidova lays out a process by which the classical Sanskrit theatre may have come into existence. Scholars have wrestled with this question for centuries. Because of this work we have a better understanding of the process. The work is bound to encourage further speculation about this topic in the years to come.
