'Modest, caring for each other, when a couple thus carry on, their mutual love will never fade' The word 'kama' means the desire, especially for sensual pleasure, in Sanskrit. Its proper pursuit was considered an essential part of the well-rounded education of a young patrician. Treating enjoyment as an art, Kama Sutra is a handbook covering every aspect of love, sex, the social life and relationships, from increasing virility to seducing a new partner. It also gives a fascinating insight into the pampered world of the Indian elite nearly two thousand years ago. This acclaimed new translation takes the Kama Sutra away from its familiar image of an erotic Oriental curiosity, and reveals it as a pithy and wry account of human behaviour. A. N. D. Haksar's introduction discusses the work's origins, authorship and influence, and this edition also contains extensive notes and a bibliography. 'The Kama Sutra may be an ancient Sanskrit text, but this translation still shows that it is still of great value . . . the new version uses a clean, intelligent and intelligible updated English' Jeanette Winterson 'A fine new translation . . . arch, comical and amazing' Hanif Kureishi Translated and with an introduction by A. N. D. Haksar
"Who was Vatsyayana? What motivated this intriguing personality in the third century to compile ancient erotic texts, replete with his witty aphorisms, into the Kama Sutra, the ultimate treatise on love and the art of lovemaking? Kama is a fictionalised account of the life and times of Vatsyayana. Seemingly, a manual for the hedonist about town, the Kama Sutra reveals another tale—written in blood—of broken hearts, lyrical violence, ageless love, and unbridled lust! Set in 273 AD, in a land fraught with war and unrest, Kama is the story of a catastrophic day in a writer-artist’s life that sets him off on a journey unto himself, beyond the boundaries of love, family and betrayal. This fast-paced story of tragedy and triumph beguiles and captivates as it flits seamlessly between an agonising past, an erotic present and a cataclysmic future."
