This set of plays provides an array of Sanskrit drama and satire, with plots that vary from the "strikingly Shakespearian" (as H. H. Wilson described it ) "Little Clay Cart" to a dramatization of and amendment to the "Ramayana" in "Rama's Last Act." In addition to its scope of genre, the set covers a large period of time (the "Three Satires" by Bhallata, Kshemendra, and Nila*kan alone were written over a period of nearly a thousand years) and also includes several works traditionally given less modern attention, such as "Malavika and Agni*mitra" by Kali*dasa, in order to provide a multifaceted view of Sankskrit theater. Included in this set: "The Lady of the Jewel Necklace" & "The Lady who Shows her Love" By Harsha. Translated by Wendy Doniger. 514 pages / 978-0-8147-1996-1 Little Clay Cart By Shudraka.
