FIGUEROA, Óscar. “A Concise Typology of Desire” (rāgavibhāgopanyāsa). A Translation of Chapter Five in the Sanskrit Satire Mother by Contract (Samayamātṛkā) by Kṣemendra (11 th CE). Nova tellus [online]. 2019, vol.37, n.1, pp.99-131. ISSN 0185-3058.  http://dx.doi.org/10.19130/iifl.nt.2019.37.1.807.

This is the first Spanish translation of the fifth chapter in the Sanskrit satire Mother by contract (Samayamātṛkā), composed by the great Kashmiri poet Kṣemendra (11th CE). Entitled “A Concise Typology of Desire” (rāgavibhāgopanyāsa), this chapter is part of the lessons taught -according to the work’s plot- by a seasoned procuress to her young student in the oldest profession in the world. In a deeper sense, the chapter is a sort of theoretical digression about various types of lovers from the perspective of their manifested desire (rāga). This typology stands out for its style and contents, as well as for the absence of parallels in the Sanskrit corpus. In this context, the paper calls attention to the significance of the chapter and indicates topics for further research.
