The book emerges from the Sixth International Conference (Bhakti Conference as it has informally come to be known) on Early Literature in New Indo-Aryan Languages held in Seattle, Washington in 1994. This collection presents 28 perceptive and well researched papers dealing with hagiography, oral traditions, text criticism, Islam in the Indian context, and metaphors. They examine aspects on `medieval` texts and textual traditions, devotional themes in modern folklore traditions and in twentieth century literatures in New Indo-Aryan Languages.
