The Abhijnanasakuntalam of Kalidasa is an unparalleled work of the great poet and playwright Kalidasa, the brightest star in the firmament of Indian poetry. No other component of this poet displays more the richness of poetical genius, the warmth and play of fancy, and the profound knowledge of the human heart than this masterly production. The present edition is unique in several essentials. The editor has adopted the most popular and appropriate version of the text. He has put the variants in the footnotes. He has added a short Sanskrit commentary, copious notes, an exhaustive introduction and several useful appendices. The English translation of the text is literal as well as idiomatic. It is hoped that this edition will meet the long-felt requirement of university students and the general reader alike.

The present edition is reprint of the ninth edition with addition of an extract from the Mahabharata – ‘Shakuntalo-pakhyana’ which was omitted in the eighth and ninth editions and an appendix No. VI at the end. Some portion in the introduction viz. pages 22 to 38 and 60 to 89, was already included in the 9th edition for help of those who have to study this work of the great poet Kalidasa for their examination. In this way the book is now made uptodate for students and general readers also.
