    Review:

    The author had discovered 'important fragments of the dramas of the great Buddhist poet Avaghosa, and of the plays of the famous Bhasa', which had thrown unexpected light on the early history of the drama in India, which students of theatre must know. The value and significance of Indian dramatic theory had retained its relevance so long that even today they continue to receive recognition universally. Hence this reprint. .....An excellent treatise to equip one with the authentic knowledge of ancient Indian theatre traditions --Indian and World Arts and Crafts

    The book published nearly seventy years ago, is still relevant and makes interesting reading. Though its coverage encompasses only a segment of Sanskrit drama, after having read the very informative book, one cannot but agree with Prof. Keith that ""the Sanskrit drama can be legitimately regarded as the highest product of Indian poetry and as summing up in itself the first conception of literary art achieved by the very self conception of literary art achieved by the very self conscious creation of Indian literature --J. Jayaraman, The Mountain Path, June 1995
