    This book represents the first attempt of its kind to present a detailed,

    systematic analysis of the Upamana dharmas (Tertia Comparationis) of the

    various objects of comparison found in the Mahabharata. It also critically

    examines the position of the Great Epic as a fascinating specimen of Oral

    poetic composition abounding, as it does, in the repetitions of the poetic

    formulae of the various categories. A study of some of the major figures of

    speech also provides an authoritative material useful for further research

    of the evolution of Tertia comparationis in the successive stages of Indian

    literary tradition.
