Abstract

This article is a continuation of a study published in AOH 66/1 (2013), pp. 25–45 entitled “What makes a good poet according to Someśvaradeva? Poetic merit, demerit and the ethics of poetry in the Surathotsava and the Kīrtikaumudī”. It provides the texts and the first English translations of several verses concerning ethics (Surathotsava 1.1–1.64 and Kīrtikaumudī 1.1–1.47) by the 13th-century poet Someśvaradeva, which had formed the basis of the analysis in that study. The edited texts here improve upon the older published versions, and, in the case of the Surathotsava, utilise textual variants and glosses to difficult puns not given in the printed text, by additionally taking into account two manuscripts.
