English translation of Swapnavasavadattam (The dream of Vasavadatta), a Sanskrit drama of six acts written by the ancient Indian poet Bhasa (3rd Century BCE).
It is based on the Brihatakatha of Gunadhya and is referred to in the Mahabharata. Bhasa stands preeminent for the boldness of his conception, insight into character and for his homely sparking style. He has written about thirteen plays of which the Svapna-Vasavadattam is reckoned as a masterpiece both in ancient Indian and modern criticism. Based on the well known love-tale of Udayana and Vasavadatta, Bhasa’s play abounds in dramatic excitement, suspense, surprise and humour.

A book on Swapnavasavadattam of mahakavi Bhash was published in Sanskrit and Pali bhasha a prakrit or abransh of sanskrit. Is that available somewhere?, a source to get it may be informed. So far as the recollection goes Pali bhasa closely resembles the present language spoken in Thailand and may perhaps provide link to Sanskrit. Even the english translation is a great ob done. My gratitude and thanks. Shiv.
All dramas of Kalidasa contain passages in Sanskrit as well as Prakrit. Usually prakrit is spoken by the women characters, vidushaka, etc. Svapnavasavadattam Sanskrit text containing Prakrit passages is available at https://archive.org/details/in.ernet.dli.2015.495997
