Indian poetry celebrates love in its many forms – the mystic love for the divine, the passionate love of couples, and the love between friends and family. Professor Anna Dallapiccola celebrates this love in Indian Love Poetry. This popular work has been reissued by the British Museum Press in a new illustrated format. It features the best of traditional Indian romantic poetry, biographical notes on the poets and some of the finest examples of Indian art from the British Museum collection.
Dallapicolla is honorary professor at the University of Edinburgh and regularly makes research visits to India. She is also author of South Indian Paintings, Hindu Visions of the Sacred and Hindu Myths.
