A Political History of Literature

Vidyapati and the Fifteenth Century

Author Dr Pankaj Jha

  • The texts under focus in the book were composed by Vidyapati, a poet and scholar, hugely popular in Bihar and Bengal as also north India. Till date there is not a single scholarly work in English on Vidyapati.
  • It is focused on the fifteenth century, a neglected period in north Indian historiography.
  • It is based on a study of Sanskrit literature during the medieval period, a period which is always associated with only Persian.
