The Masterpieces and the History of Literature, Vol. 2 of 10 free pdf Excerpt from The Masterpieces and the History of Literature, Vol. 2 of 10: Analysis, Criticism, Character, and Incident Our former notice of the Sanskrit Epics was confined chiefly to the Ramayana, which relates to the Aryan conquest of Southern India. More important than even that poem, as a product of ancient Indian genius, is the Mahabharata, or Great War of the Bharatas. This epic, with its eighteen books and 110,000 verses, is the longest poem in the world- but its variations in style and incoherency of narrative betray it to be the work of many authors. Vyasa, the name of the author to whom Hindu tradition attributes it, means "Arranger," and may be interpreted "Editor." The main story, occupying one-fourth of the whole poem, is perhaps historical in outline- the remainder comprises episodes of ancient Indian history, stories of the gods and of creation, didactic passages on religion, morals, philosophy and law, and, in short, nearly all that it behooves an educated Hindu to know. The story describes the contest of two branches of the Bharatas for supremacy. The Pandavas descended through Bharata from Puru, ancestor of a branch of the lunar race. Dhritarashtra being blind, his younger brother Pandu succeeded to the throne, but resigned it to spend his life hunting.
