Girish Karnad is regarded as one of the three great writes of the contemporary Indian drama, the other two being Vijay Tendulkar and Badal Sircar. Whileas Badal Sircar and Vijay Tendulkar deal with the problem of the middle-class, Girish Karnad takes refuge in the Indian myths and legends and makes them a vehicle of a new vision.

His significant plays include Yayati, Tughlaq, Haya-vadana, Naga-Mandala and Tale-Danda. Also he has written extensively on art, literature and culture. The present volume, comprising more than thirty scholarly papers, offers a critical appraisal of Karnad as a dramatist and provides varied perspectives on his major plays.
