A Facsimile Edition of a Maithili Play: Bhupatindramalla's Parsuramopakhayana-nataka Author:Edt Ramawatar Yadav
A thoroughly researched critical edition of a Newari manuscript of an early 18th century Maithili play penned by Bhaktapur-king Bhupatindramalla, this book contains a distinctly readable reprint of the original Newari manuscript, a transliteration into Devanagari script,a translation into Roman script, a translation into English, and a long introduction delineating the age old "Nepal_Tirhut connection" and the key elements of Medieval Maithili stagecraft in the Nepalamandala. More importantly, basing exclusively on the prose used in dialogues in the play, the book also presents a highly insightful and scholarly linguistic description cluminating in a sketch of a grammar of middle Maithili containing sustantiated information on orthographic peculiarities/anomalies, phonetics and phonology, morphology, and syntax and semantics of Middle Maithili.
