This is a high-level reading course in Sanskrit literature. The four-year Sanskrit program is designed to introduce students to the broadest possible range of literary genres, including epic, courtly poetry, drama, Upani?adic verse and Vedic. This course will introduce final-year students to the important epigrammatical genre of sutra which is characterised by extreme brevity and density of expression. Sutra texts, as a result of their terseness, are often accompanied by commentaries by indigenous authors which explain and elaborate on the root-text. Commentaries themselves also form an important genre, and mastering the conventions associated with commentarial style is an important stage in a student's development as an independent reader of Sanskrit texts.

The ANU uses Turnitin to enhance student citation and referencing techniques, and to assess assignment submissions as a component of the University's approach to managing Academic Integrity. While the use of Turnitin is not mandatory, the ANU highly recommends Turnitin is used by both teaching staff and students. For additional information regarding Turnitin please visit the ANU Online website.
