The seventeenth-century Hindi classic treasured for its subtle and beautiful portrayal of divine and erotic love's pleasures and sorrows.

The seven hundred poems of the Hindi poet Biharilal's Satsai weave amorous narratives of the god Krishna and the goddess Radha with archetypal hero and heroine motifs that bridge divine and worldly love. He Spoke of Love brims with romantic rivalries, clandestine trysts, and the bittersweet sorrow of separated lovers. This new translation presents four hundred couplets from the enduring seventeenth-century classic, showcasing the poet's ingenuity and virtuosity.
