On the Growth and Composition of the Sanskrit Epics and Puranas: Relationship to Kavya. Social and Economic Context (Proceedings of the Fifth Dubrovnik International Conference on the Sanskrit Epics and Puranas, August 2008)

About the Book

Out of the nineteen articles received from the contributors and positively assessed by an international assessors’ team to be published in this volume, four are concerned with the growth of the Sanskrit epic literature (A. Hiltebeitel, O. Hellwig, M. Ježić, H. Brinkhaus), the first deals with the both Sanskrit epics, the next two with the Rāmāyaṇa, and the last one with the transition from the epic to Purāṇic cosmogony; six papers explore some aspects of the social and economic context of the epics, especially the Mahābhārata (J. Bronkhorst, G. Bailey, Y. Vassilkov, T. Pontillo, P. Szczurek, D. Feller); three papers are concerned with the composition and narrative strategies in the Purāṇas (R. Söhnen-Thieme, M. Taylor, K. Valpey); four are dedicated to the relationship between the Sanskrit epics and kāvya (P. Olivelle, K. Gönc Moačanin, L. Sudyka, A. Bonisoli); and two articles are philological studies of the meaning of particular words in epic contexts (S. Sellmer, L. Kulikov).
