An Indian dramatic poet next in celebrity to Kalidasa; he lived in the 8th century. His "Malatimadhava", which might be entitled "The Secret Marriage", portrays Indian society in effective traits. The "Mahaviratsharita" ("Fortunes of the Great Hero") deals with the deeds of Rama and his victory over the giant Ravana, ravisher of Sita, Rama's consort. The "Uttararamatsharita" ("Other Fortunes of Rama") portrays the long-suffering of Sita and her reconcilement with Rama, all in a sympathetic vein and sometimes with great force.
