This volume contains an introduction in English, the Sanskrit text of the poem broken down into padas (four lines of text) , a running Sanskrit commentary by Vallabhadeva, a list of spurious verses and, very importantly, a full Sanskrit-English vocabulary. Sanskrit texts are fairly easy to obtain, but the beauty of this little book is that you don't need to spend hours thumbing through a dictionary to find the meaning that you want. The text seems straightforward enough, although I am using a literal translation which I found on the net and which is invaluable. I haven't read any of the Sanskrit commentary, but may return to it at some time. There is a useful bibliography at the back, from which I found a reference to Kalidasa's complete works, which is now on my wish list. Printed in India, the paper is fine and the text is very clear.
All things considered, an excellent volume for the intermediate/advanced student.
