Atyantātiśayokti (अत्यन्तातिशयोक्ति) refers to one of the varieties of Atiśayokti: one of the 93 alaṃkāras (“figures of speech”) mentioned by Jayadeva and Cirañjīva Bhaṭṭācārya (fl. 17th century) in his Kāvyavilāsa.—Atiśayokti is one of the important figures of speech admitted by almost all the famous Ālaṃkārikas (e.g., Bhāmaha, Rudraṭa, Daṇḍin, Kuntaka, Mammaṭa). Jayadeva has not given any general definition of atiśayokti, but he has defined and illustrated each of the six varieties of atiśayokti (viz. Atyantātiśayokti).
Whenever the above mentioned sequence of the cause and the effect becomes reverse the figure is atyantātiśayokti. Cirañjīva defines Atyantātiśayokti as follows:—“atyantātiśayoktistu paurvāparyavyatikrame”.—In this figure the reversal of the sequence is shown by the effect preceding its cause.
Example of the atyantātiśayokti-alaṃkāra:
mama tu mānamayī matirādito gatavatī bata tattanuvīkṣaṇāt |
anunayaṃ kṛtavānatha pādayoḥ sakhi! patan patireṣa punaḥpunaḥ ||
“Oh friend! from the very glance of this person my sense of sulky pride really had gone before. This my husband (afterwards) solicited importunately again and again by following on the feet”.
Notes: Here the effect that is the removal of the sulky pride of the heroine has been described as happening before the importunation of his beloved. So this is an example of atyantātiśayokti.
Natyashastra (नाट्यशास्त्र, nāṭyaśāstra) refers to both the ancient Indian tradition (śāstra) of performing arts, (nāṭya, e.g., theatrics, drama, dance, music), as well as the name of a Sanskrit work dealing with these subjects.
