Authors: Sharma, Ghanshyam

Abstract: The paper argues for a non-mystical interperation of the theory of rasa and deals in particular with the semantico-pragmatic aspects of literary meaning as conceived by it. In an attempt to interpret the process of the aesthetic experience during the reading of a piece of literary work as revealed by Bharata in his aphorism, the four commentators (Bhaṭṭalollaṭa, Śaṅkuka, Bhaṭṭa Nāyaka, Abhinavagupta) have taken into consideration different questions of literary meaning that require semantico-pragmatic explanations for the way in which literary meaning becomes perceptible to the reader. The paper aims at providing a few hints only of investigating various aspects of the epistemological foundation of a common ground between the writer and the reader, between different characters of a literary work, and at te same time discusses also the nature of semantic "reference" in literary enunciation.
