This monograph provides the student of literature and the general reader with a brief introduction to Banabhatta, a towering figure in classical Sanskrit literature.

Banabhatta is the celebrated author of Kadambari and Harshacharita, masterpieces in Sanskrit literature. Though his supremacy as a grand stylist, as a master over the elaborate phrase and poetic image, has never been questioned, his habitual sublimity of style, his very forte, has been an impediment to a just appreciation of his works.

This monograph is attempts to remove hindrances to the enjoyment of a great epic stylist, a sublime poet in prose, a visionary ranging his eyes across climes and lives, a humanist with a profound message to mankind.
