This book has inspired many scholars to study the numerous works on Alankara, to produce papers dealing with several aspects of Alankarasastra and to publish several important texts. The author has made substantial additions and changes in this edition and has included valuable new material.The book is divided into two parts. The first part contains an account of the important works on Alankarasastra, a brief analysis of their contents and the chronology of writers on Alankarasastra and other kindred matters. The second part comprises a review of subjects that fall under the purview of Alankarasastra. The author has attempted to show how from very small beginnings various theories of Poetics and Literary Criticism were evolved, to dilate upon the different aspects of an elaborate theory of Poetics and trace the history of literary theories in India.
