Half-Bird, Half-fish: The New Grammar of Time Past in Tamil, Telugu and Sanskrit by University of Washington, Dept of Asian L&L in Seattle



Admission : This lecture event is free and open to the public.

Description:
The sixteenth century in early-modern South India was a period when a new genre the self-contained literary prabandha, meant
to be read from beginning to end over a few days, in homes, literary salons, royal
courts, or temples, with a range of unusual themes appeared in Sanskrit and all of the south Indian languages. The Tamil case is particularly interesting because of the
continuing influence of very ancient poetic grammars within a literary and intellectual
ecology that had rendered these grammars largely obsolete and put in place a new vision of what constitutes poetry and truth.
