T1 The recognition of Shakúntala A1 Kālidāsa., Vasudeva, Somadeva., PB New York University Press : JJC Foundation PP New York YR 2006 SN 0814788157 9780814788158 AB "The play Shakuntala was one of the first examples of Indian literature to be read in translation in Europe. Shakuntala's story is a leitmotiv that recurs in many works of Indian literature and culminates in the master Kali-dasa's drama for the stage." "The virtuous heroine is forgotten by her betrothed, the king Dushyanta, only to be refound thanks to a distinguishing signet ring discovered by a fisherman in the belly of one of his catch. The final act distills the essence of human forgiveness, in Shakuntala's gracious release of her husband from his guilt."--BOOK JACKET.
