How the Nagas Were Pleased & The Shattered Thighs (Clay Sanskrit Library)

How the Nagas Were Pleased & The Shattered Thighs (Clay Sanskrit Library) by Bhasa, Harsha
English | March 1st, 2009 | ISBN: 0814740669 | 377 Pages | PDF | 3.43 MB
Two tragic plays that break the rules: both show the hero dying on stage, a scenario forbidden in Sanskrit dramaturgy. King Harsha's play, composed in the seventh century, re-examines the Buddhist tale of a magician prince who makes the ultimate sacrifice to save a hostage snake (naga).

The Shattered Thighs, attributed to Bhasa, the illustrious predecessor to ancient Kali·dasa, transforms a crucial episode of the Maha·bharata war. As he dies from a foul blow to the legs delivered in his duel with Bhima, Duryodhana's character is inverted, depicted as a noble and gracious exemplar amidst the wreckage of the fearsome battle scene.
