Product Description

With the publication in English of this volume, the Venerable Olganwaththe Chndrasiri himi has made what amounts to a major contribution to both Sri Lankan social history and Sinhala literary studies. Through painstaking research, undertaken in the archives of Sri Lanka and Britain, he has provided us with the first comprehensive study of the new Sinhala pamphlet poetry that emerged in the second half of the nineteenth century.
