The Story of Manu, by the early sixteenth-century - poet Allasani Peddana, is the definitive literary monument of Telugu civilization and a powerful embodiment of the imperial culture of Vijayanagara, the last of the great premodern South-Indian states. It is the story of Svarochisha Manu, who ruled over the previous cosmic age and who serves here as a prototype for the first human being. Peddana explores the dramatic displacements, imaginative projections and intricate workings of desire necessary for Manus birth and formation.
