Kalidasa was the most accomplished poet and playwright in classical Sanskrit literature. This collection features his best-known work: the great poem "Meghadutam" (The Cloud Messenger), a haunting depiction of longing and separation; the play "Sakuntala," which describes the troubled love between a Lady of Nature and King Duhsanta; and the poem "Rtusamharam" (The Gathering of the Seasons), an exuberant observation of the sheer variety of the natural world as it teems with the energies of the great god Siva.
