Accurate but delivered lightly. This book is all I expected from a beginners text book in Sanskrit. Then again, it was a present for someone else.

Certainly nothing to croak about! A welcome addition to Sanskrit lovers library! 20 Mar. 2013
By Koti Sreekrishna - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
In all my love affairs with Sanskrit works, I am amazed how metrics (Chandas) dictate many aspects of the work. Some metrics (gayatri, anushtup) forces me to chant, while certain other metrics (like Trishtup, jagati) forces me to sing, yet others like atidhriti, totally surrenders me to it. All these by just casual observation. While I knew that "Chandas" (metrics of Vedas) is a Vedanga text and the Vedas themself are also called chandas, yet knew not anything more about chandas! I always felt like a chandala (outcaste/outsider) to chandas. I was struggling to find just any book on metrics and that interest deepened when my niece Harini Raghavan(MA, Sanskrit) asked me if I knew any book on Chandas. I guess for everything time has to come. My latest search led me to Mr. Morgan's book. My decades of dreams about metrics found a treasure here. Almost any person can benefit from this book. Mr. Morgan's depth of understanding Sanskrit works from the foremost Vedas down to classical literature and beyond is simply amazing. It is obvious that he has puts his heart, mind, soul and intellect into every sentence he has scribed. It is fully informational, presented in a delightful manner and so reader friendly! I must say that I can enjoy Sanskrit and its bounties, an order of magnitude more, thanks to Mr. Morgan's book. What a blessing for me who was looking for just any book to find such a marvelous work.

Croaking Frogs is Exceptional 3 Feb. 2012
By Anthony Biduck - Published on
Format: Paperback
Croaking Frogs: A Guide to Sanskrit Metrics and Figures of Speech is exceptional, and a text that has been needed for a long time. As a contributor of Croaking Frogs, I am only reviewing the chapters by Les Morgan. Overall, Mr. Morgan has done a wonderful job in this book. His explanations of difficult concepts are expressed clearly, and his presentation of them are pedagogically effective. It is a perfect book for those both new to and interested in Sanskrit metrics. It is also enormously useful for experienced students of Sanskrit metrics and figures of speech. Croaking Frogs would also be desirable and appropriate for those interested in learning the science of mantra, Sanskrit chanting, and kirtan. I have learned a tremendous amount in my two readings of this text. I cannot help but feel sincere appreciation for the carefulness, precision, and accurately detailed scholarship that Mr. Les Morgan has crafted into this wonderful study of Sanskrit metrics.
