This book, slight though it may be in size, is a comprehensive work, undertaking, as it does, to study and interpret in the light of modern psychology all that has been discussed by the litarary critics of this country for over a score of centuries under the subject of Rasa (or the Relish of Poetry). The author, breaking away from years of tradition, divides his discussion of the term into two separate sections (1) Rasa as relish and (2) Rasa as emotion, and in them he treats the ideas of both Eastern and Western literary critics and psychologists. This overall survey of a difficult subjects is one that was needed to clarify the situation of conflicting opinions that have crowded this area of literary criticism. Undoubtedly, this book will not appeal to the layman, but it should be of great value to students of poetry, literature and literary criticism.
This book is the result of an intensive study of most of the original works on Rasa in sanskrit and those who read it will be struck by the intensity of the researches made by the author.
