About the Author

Svapna-Vasavadattam, a drama of six Acts composed by Bhasa, is based on the Brihatakatha of Gunadhya and is referred to in the Mahabharata. Bhasa stands preeminent for the boldness of his conception, insight into character and for hs homely sparking style. He has written about thirteen plays of which the Svapna-vasavadatta is reckoned as a masterpiece both in ancient Indian and modern criticism. Based on the well-known love-tale of Udayana and Vasavadatta, Bhasa’s play abounds in dramatic excitement, suspense, surprise and humour.

About the Book

Bhasa is a celebrated dramatist with considerable originality. While borrowing themes from the epics he makes variations in order to make them dramatically suitable. His plays are noted for their speedy action and movement. Many of the characters, themselves, are heroes of action. He shows originality in endowing even the traditionally wicked heroes like Duryodhana and Ravana with redeeming qualities.
