9781853266065: Kama Sutra (Wordsworth Classic) (Wordsworth Classics)

The Kama Sutra (the 'science of love') is one of the world s greatest books. Written between the 1st and 4th centuries AD, it is a magnificent treatise on sexual conduct and erotic technique. Its purpose is not simply to provide a menu for the sensual epicure or a training programme for the sexual athlete, but to comment on the situations in which men and women encounter, and to deal with them in such a way as to achieve personal fulfilment through ecstasy. This edition contains the classic translation by Sir Richard Burton, first published in 1883.

From the Inside Flap:

Sir Richard F. Burton's translation of "The Kama Sutra remains one of the best English interpretations of this early Indian treatise on politics, social customs, love, and intimacy. Its crisp style set a new standard for Sanskrit translation.
"The Kama Sutra stands uniquely as a work of psychology, sociology, Hindu dogma, and sexology. It has been a celebrated classic of Indian literature for 1,700 years and a window for the West into the culture and mysticism of the East.
This Modern Library Paperback Classic reprints the authoritative text of Sir Richard F. Burton's 1883 translation.

From the Back Cover:

“[The Kama Sutra is] tender, sage, and domestic.” —Fawn M. Brodie
