Minor in Middle East Studies - Sanskrit Texts II: Myth, Poetry and Drama RELS 4600   Sanskrit Texts II: Myth, Poetry and Drama
This course continues from RELS/CLAS 3600 the reading of Sanskrit texts in their original form, training students in the styles and conventions of Puranic literature (e.g. Vishnu Purana, Bhagavata Purana, etc.) as well as of kavya or courtly poetry and drama (e.g. excerpts from the Gita Govinda of Jayadeva, poems and plays of Kalidasa, plays of Bhasa, Kiratarjuniya of Bharavi, etc.). Students will work through short selections, emphasizing thorough mastery of smaller and representative samples over quantity or exhaustive coverage of entire works.
