Overview

The classic Sanskrit play by Kalidasa, the Shakespeare of India.

Shakuntala Recognized is a translation of the Sanskrit play, Abhijyanashakuntalam, by the great poet and playwright Kalidasa.

This play is perhaps his most powerful expression of that sensuality. Extolled by Goethe, German Romanticists and others, the play uniquely weaves a magical fabric of life with the threads of human frailties and tragedies.
