Indian Love Poetry
edited by A.L. Dallapiccola

6" x 7 1/2" • 100 pages • full-color illustrations
ISBN 9781566566568 • hardback • $17.95

A selection of beautiful Indian love poetry, richly illustrated with vivid paintings from magnificent collections

Love is widely celebrated in Indian poetry, whether mystic love for the divine or the passionate and affectionate feelings between lovers, husbands and wives, parents and children, family and friends. Although the literary forms and language may not be quite so familiar, the same themes reappear in many of today’s preoccupations with love and romance.

This attractive collection combines a selection of translations from various languages of the best of Indian poetry with illustrations drawn from some of the finest examples of Indian art. With a brief introduction to the Indian poetic tradition and a short biographical note about each of the poets, this beautiful anthology is the perfect way to discover the treasures of Indian literature and art.

A. L. Dallapiccola is honorary professor at the University of Edinburgh and makes regular research visits to India. She is the author of Hindu Visions of the Sacred and Hindu Myths as well as A Dictionary of Hindu Lore and Legend.
