Hanumannāṭaka (हनुमन्नाटक).—Śrī Dāmodara Miśra’s Hanuman-nāṭaka is a Mahānāṭaka (a fourteen act drama), dealing with the story of Rāma. Here is found the description of the events starting from Rāma’s birth up to the death of Rāvaṇa, Rāma’s coronation and Sītā’s exile. But some variations from the Rāmāyaṇa have been made in the construction of the plot of the drama.
