Abstract

This paper mainly focuses on the typology of sea images spotted out in the Yuddhakanda of Ramayana. It aims to outline some sea imagery features in Indian pre-kāvya literature by the way of comparison with analogous images quoted from the Mahabharata and from some Kavya works. The war context is prevailing in the selected epic book. Therefore the ocean is quite regularly a second term of comparison for single warriors or for armies.
Figures of comparison; ocean imagery; epics and kāvya
