This set illustrates the diversity of Indian language and literature, incorporating translations and discussions of Indian poetry, dramas and proverbs. Albrecht Weber's foundational study, The History of Indian Literature includes analyses of writings from the Sanskrit, Buddhist and Vedic periods. Herman Jensen's A Classical Collection of Tamil Proverbs lists proverbs in the Tamil script and with both a literal translation, and an explanation in English. Similarly, John Christian's Behar Proverbs illustrates the different means of expression in these regional proverbs. The volumes in this set will be very useful research tools for anyone interested in Indian Language and Literature.
