About The Book A compendium of evocative and sensual writing spanning 5000 years of Indian literature In this comprehensive anthology, the authors forcefully drive home the point that the fascination with eroticism is age-old. The absence of inhibition and guilt and the candour and boldness with which society set about seeking its pleasures find expression repeatedly in writings over the ages.
Not too inviting, the title, but Love and Lust continues with An Anthology of Erotic Literature .
Not too inviting, the title, but Love and Lust continues with An Anthology of Erotic Literature from Ancient and Medieval India. The book is handsomely produced by HarperCollins India: a hardback of 344 pages, with an attractive pastel drawing on the cover and the pages laid out on decent paper - a far cry from the usual Indian production.
There are stories of love and lust, of women enticing men, of illicit relationships, of games, that lovers play, of the roles their friends play and the impact on nature on human emotions. There are lessons for lovers like where to meet, how to start talking and how to make love. And there are elaborate descriptions of the man and the woman, right from what they are wearing, how their bodies are and how they change in reaction to their partner, that bring them alive along with the surroundings.
