This is a tapestry of miniature verses from classical Sanskrit. This selection from the "Subhashitavali", a celebrated verse anthology compiled by Vallabhadeva in c. fifteenth-century Kashmir, offers a rich variety of erotic poetry and a wealth of lyrical and gnomic verse. One section is given to earthy humour and cynical satire seldom available in English renditions. Also included are invocations and allegories, panegyrics and pen-pictures, sage observations and stark musings. The sweep of these verses is matched by the eclectic array of contributors - from illustrious poets like Vyasa and Valmiki, Kalidasa and Bana to others now mostly forgotten.
