Bhoja Paramāra and Literary Culture in Medieval India

Daud ALI

15 juin 2017 | 10h30 - 12h30

salle AS1-08 - 1er sous-sol | 54 boulevard Raspail 75006 Paris


This lecture will explore the role of Bhoja in the transformation of literary culture in India from the 13th century. It will argue that Bhoja becomes particularly associated with a comparatively new imagination in Sanskrit literary circles with a scholastic interest in poetic virtuosity and the biographization of the Sanskrit literary tradition. This is epitomized by stories of Bhoja’s court as a literary salon of fantastic proportions, attended by the very best poets of Sanskrit literature, and that begin as early as the 13th century and culminate in the 16th century.
