Description - Modernity of Sanskrit by Simona Sawhney

A convincing argument for the modern significance of Sanskrit literature. Sanskrit texts have usually been discussed either within the frames of anthropology and religious studies or with a veneration that has substituted for analysis. Going beyond such approaches, Simona Sawhney argues that only a literary approach that resists the closure of interpretation can reveal the fragility, ambivalence, and tension that mark the canonical texts.
