The Kama Sutra of Vatsyayana

The Kama Sutra of Vatsyayana Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Sir Richard F. Burtons 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. Burtons 1883 translation.
