Opis: A History of Telugu Literature, Vol. 2 (Classic Reprint) - Chenchiah P.

Excerpt from A History of Telugu Literature, Vol. 2

I have cursorily glanced through the History of Telugu Literature by Mr. Chenchiah and Raja Bhujanga Rao, and have been much struck by the authors' grasp of the subject and broad illuminating views.

Mr. Rice's book on Kanarese Literature opened what to South Indians must have appeared as a new way of treating literary histories; and the present authors have benefited to the full by Mr. Rice's example. Doubtless the critical student may find in this work occasional omissions, which are inevitable in view of the enormous growth of new matter as a result of recent events and researches.

Virasaiva literature is now being reclaimed. And if the libraries of the various mutts of His Exalted Highness in the Nizam's Dominions are ransacked, it is very likely that more books belonging to the same group may be discovered, as also perhaps books having a special bearing on Buddhism and Jainism. The ruthless manner in which Buddhist and Jain literature, in Sanskrit as well as the vernaculars, was suppressed and destroyed through the Brahminical reaction is the greatest tragedy of Indian culture. Today, much of that vast treasure has to be imported from Tibetan and Chinese renderings. Though the outlook as regards possible finds in our own country is almost blank, I am still in hopes of occasional good fortune in this line, if a diligent and systematic search is instituted.

One of the merits of the present work is the historical background presented, and the suggestive manner in which literature is linked up with the general social and political history of the Andhra Desa. Literature is life, cither in its growth or its decadence; and unless it is correlated with life, it cannot be properly appreciated. And literature is, not infrequently, propaganda.
