Kshemendra

Kshemendra (c.990 – c.1070) was an 11th-century Sanskrit poet from Kashmir, India. His literary output includes still-studied works on poetics and prosody, apart from devotional and didactic verse, mordant social satire and a lost history of the kings of Kashmir. Eighteen of these works were recovered in the past century, and sixteen are known only through citations. They have established Kshemendra as a prolific and multifaceted writer on a wide variety of subjects and an important name in classical Sanskrit literature.
