Item Description: D.K. Printworld (P) Ltd, 2004. Hardcover. Book Condition: New. First edition. The Indian perspective has always been holistic and all-inclusive: thought and activity in different fields, at different levels, have been interlinked to produce what has been timeless. Indian arts is a classic example of such amalgamation: it interlinks aspects of art, philosophy, mythology, religion, and mysticism. This book is an attempt to unravel such links with specific reference to the Kathaka dance form. Dr. Ranjana Srivastava explores the roots of Kathaka dance form to reveal its sublime, philosophic, esoteric and divine dimensions. Focussing on inter-relationships, she unfolds how dance embraces other disciplines of Yoga ? Tantra, Mantra and Yantra. She discusses the concept of Tantra and its approximation and application to the dance form ? the way Kathaka absorbed the sacred knowledge within its form. She deals with the importance and aspects of sound in the Hindu religious scheme and its manifestation in Kathaka. Explaining the significance of the yantra as a diagrammatic/geometric representation and the way it functions, she analyses the techniques of Kathaka which create distinct yantra formations both in the physical movements of the dancer in the surrounding space as well as on the dancing floor. The study abounds in extensive notes to explain numerous terms and concepts and has references to noted works and authors on the subject. The book will be useful to experts and students of Indian art and, in particular, dance and will interest general people keen to know more about India?s art traditions. Printed Pages: 160.

Item Description: D K Printworld. Hardcover. Book Condition: New. Dust Jacket Condition: New. 1st Edition. Contents: Preface. 1. Langer's theory of art : some essentials. 2. Of music : Langer and an Indian genre. 3. Imaging time in music : Langer and Hindustani rhythm. 4. Magic in movement : Langer and Kathak dance. Bibliography. Index. "The book is decidedly the very first of its kind. It seeks to weigh some basic facts and concepts of Hindustani sangeet ( music, rhythm, and Kathak dance) against the art theories of Susanne K. Langer, an eminent aesthetician of the recent past; but nowhere without meticulous attention to the text of her writings. "The expression theory of art has for long dominated the history of aesthetics. At the hands of Langer, however, the theory takes a new turn. She conceives of art not as a direct self-expression of the artist's immediate affective state, but as a symbolic expression of his knowledge of what she terms variously as felt life, sentience, or forms of feeling. Drawing freely upon examples from the region of Hindustani sangeet, the present book accepts Langer's protest against the popular view of artistic expression, but contends that there is a good deal in our music and dance which has nothing to do with feeling, and is admired simply because of its sweetness, clarity, shapeliness, and accordance with grammatical norms. "In the chapter on music, while discussing Langer's emphasis on 'commanding form' in a total performance, the author proposes a quite new definition of raga which seeks to integrate the various points in its traditional characterizations.The third chapter too, which deals with Langer's view of rhythm, is not 383 pp. Bookseller Inventory # 37646
