    Birds of a Feather: Vāmana Bhaṭṭa Bāṇa's Haṃsasandeśa and Its Intertexts.Yigal Bronner - 2021 - Journal of the American Oriental Society 133 (3):495.
    Courier poetry is perhaps the richest and most vital literary genre of premodern South Asia, with hundreds of poems in a great variety of languages. But other than dubbing these poems “imitations” of Kālidāsa’s classical model, existing scholarship offers very little explanation of why this should be the case: why poets repeatedly turned to this literary form, exactly how they engaged with existing precedents, and what, if anything, was new in these many poems. In hopes of raising and beginning to (...)

    Vastutas Tu: Methodology and the New School of Sanskrit Poetics. [REVIEW]Gary Tubb & Yigal Bronner - 2008 - Journal of Indian Philosophy 36 (5-6):619-632.
    Recognizing newness is a difficult task in any intellectual history, and different cultures have gauged and evaluated novelty in different ways. In this paper we ponder the status of innovation in the context of the somewhat unusual history of one Sanskrit knowledge system, that of poetics, and try to define what in the methodology, views, style, and self-awareness of Sanskrit literary theorists in the early modern period was new. The paper focuses primarily on one thinker, Jagannātha Paṇḍitarāja, the most famous (...)

    A Question of Priority: Revisiting the Bhāmaha-Daṇḍin Debate. [REVIEW]Yigal Bronner - 2012 - Journal of Indian Philosophy 40 (1):67-118.
    As has been obvious to anyone who has looked at them, there is a special relationship between the two earliest extant works on Sanskrit poetics: Bhāmaha’s Kāvyālaṃkāra (Ornamenting Poetry) and Daṇḍin’s Kāvyādarśa (The Mirror of Poetry). The two not only share an analytical framework and many aspects of their organization but also often employ the selfsame language and imagery when they are defining and exemplifying what is by and large a shared repertoire of literary devices. In addition, they also betray (...)

    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 (...)

    Indic Ornaments on Javanese Shores: Retooling Sanskrit Figures in the Old Javanese Rāmāyaṇa.Yigal Bronner & Helen Creese - 2021 - Journal of the American Oriental Society 139 (1):41.
    The Old Javanese Rāmāyaṇa Kakawin, the earliest known Javanese literary work, is based on the sixth-century Sanskrit Bhaṭṭikāvya. It is an outcome of a careful and thorough project of translation and adaptation that took place at a formative moment in the cultural exchange between South and Southeast Asia. In this essay we explore what it was that the Javanese poets set out to capture when they rendered the Bhaṭṭikāvya into Old Javanese, what sort of knowledge and protocols informed their work, (...)

    A Renaissance Man in Memory: Appayya Dīkṣita Through the Ages.Yigal Bronner - 2016 - Journal of Indian Philosophy 44 (1):11-39.
    This essay is a first attempt to trace the evolution of biographical accounts of Appayya Dīkṣita from the sixteenth century onward, with special attention to their continuities and changes. It explores what these rich materials teach us about Appayya Dīkṣita and his times, and what lessons they offer about the changing historical sensibilities in South India during the transition to the colonial and postcolonial eras. I tentatively identify two important junctures in the development of these materials: one that took place (...)
