    The Poetics of Ambivalence: Imagining and Unimagining the Political in Bilhaṇa’s Vikramāṅkadevacarita. [REVIEW]Yigal Bronner - 2010 - Journal of Indian Philosophy 38 (5):457-483.
    There is something quite deceptive about Bilhaṇa’s Vikramāṅkadevacarita , one of the most popular and oft-quoted works of the Sanskrit canon. The poem conforms perfectly to the stipulations of the mahākāvya genre: it is replete with descriptions of bravery in battle and amorous plays with beautiful women; its language is intensified by a powerful arsenal of ornaments and images; and it portrays its main hero, King Vikramāṅka VI of the Cāḷukya dynasty (r. 1076–1126), as an equal of Rāma. At the (...)

    Poetry Beyond Good and Evil: Bilhaṇa and the Tradition of Patron-Centered Court Epic. [REVIEW]Lawrence McCrea - 2010 - Journal of Indian Philosophy 38 (5):503-518.
    The eleventh century poet Bilhaṇa’s magnum opus, his Vikramāṅkadevacarita, quickly became one of the most admired and quoted examplars of a newly emergent genre in second millennium Sanskrit poetry, the patron-centered court epic—an extended verse composition dedicated to relating the deeds and celebrating the virtues of the pet’s own patron. But Bilhaṇa’s verse biography of his patron, the Cālukya monarch Vikramāditya VI, while ostensibly singing his praises, is colored throughout by darker suggestions that Vikramāditya may be less than the moral (...)

    Sharing a Single Seat: The Poetics and Politics of Male Intimacy in the Vikramāṅkakāvya. [REVIEW]Whitney Cox - 2010 - Journal of Indian Philosophy 38 (5):485-501.
    In this essay, I trace the enabling conditions for the major statement of the subversive subtext in Bilhaṇa’s Vikramāṅkadevacarita (VDC) by unpacking the operation of the work’s patent, eulogistic text. In particular, I will explore the place given to the depiction of male intimacy as a poetic substitute or simulacrum for the political alliances central to Vikramāditya’s coming to the throne, as described in the mahākāvya’s fourth through sixth sargas . My intention in focusing on the intense friendships between men (...)
