Poems from the Sanskrit book. Published December 8th 1977 by Penguin Classics (first published 1969). John Brough’s Poems from the Sanskrit, despite its confusing title, (what is the Sanskrit?) is actually a very charming anthology of translated Sanskrit poems, ranging from roughly the 4th through 10th centuries. The translator’s stated purpose for compiling this volume is as follows: Normally Sanskrit translators, focus on conveying meaning at the expense of poetic or prosaic style.

When a book is described as "good" I at least expect it to be intact but pieces of the brittle cover were missing and crumbling as soon as unwrapped. It was far from "good". It took weeks to arrive at the last possible due date and was in extremely "poor" condition.
I'd never make another purchase from this seller and would advise any potential buyer to do the same.

This is a charming collection of classical Sanskrit verse composed between the 4th and 10th centuries A.D. The introduction explains the term Classical Sanskrit, the sources of the book, the general problem of translation and some of the special problems; these include Sanskrit's capacity for building very long nominal compounds that are frequently used in poetry plus the abundance of synonyms which poets had at their disposal. Poetical conventions as well as metres and rhyming effects are also covered. The English translations are rhythmic and evocative, in other words, good poetry not direct translations. Some are quite stunning, like this sweet little thing by an unknown author elegantly rendered into English by the translator John Brough: "A lover reunited with his darling, the bee clings close and kisses the mango-blossom." There are poems devoted to the romantic and the sensual and many of a philosophical nature too, like this gem: "Rise early son/Ponder your acts, think of the world to come:/For be assured, the fruits of all you do/Will think on you." The book contains an extensive list of references to the Sanskrit originals. I think Brough has done a great job in making Sanskrit poetry come alive in such delightful English.

The introduction to this translation of Sanskrit poetry is very good. Unfortunately, I have to disagree with the other reviewers about the translation. The English rhymes in such short poems make them seem utterly trivial. The amount of dexterity required to produce a few rhymes gives them a slightness, which I suspect cannot be true of the originals. I cannot read Sanskrit, but since it is an inflected language there is room for subleties that are obliterated by the one dimensional tendency of pushing towards a rhyme. One gets no sense of the art and craft that we are told is in these possibly sophisticated miniature poems.
