This paper presents an argument for a particular approach to translating Sanskrit drama for an audience unfamiliar with the conventions of classical Indian theatre, such as rasa theory. It illustrates the approach through an analysis of a well-known verse in Act Four of Kālidāsa’s The Recognition of Śakuntalā.
