Summary "Mpu Monagua's early thirteenth century epic poem Sumanasntaka is a vernacular rendering of Klidsa's story of Prince Aja and Princess Indumat told in the Raghuvaa. In it the poet exploits his source narrative to describe and comment on the Javanese world of his times. In Mpu Monagua's Sumanasntaka the authors offer an edited text and translation of Mpu Monagua's epic kakawin and extensive commentary on the editing of the manuscripts and history of the poem and its story, the relationship between the Old Javanese poem and Klidsa's Raghuvaa, the way in which the poem imagines the lived environment of ancient Java in the early thirteenth century and Balinese painted representations of the story of Prince Aja and Princess Indumat"-- Publisher's Web site.
