Kavyashastra (science of poetry)Source: Shodhganga: Bhismacaritam a critical study
Netā (नेता) refers to the “hero and other set of characters” and represents one of the primary or the principal characteristics of a Mahākāvya (‘epic poem’).—Netā is one of the primary elements of mahākāvya. The poet as a weaver weaves the beautiful web of plot just with the help of character. As in the drama the characters are the wheels of the vehicle of a plot, the same is the case with a mahākāvya. The characters act always as the mouthpieces of dramatist or the writer of mahākāvya. Whatever the poet wants to convey or put before the reader, he does it through his characters. The poet and the readers are separated generally from each other by several years and quite often even by several centuries. The characters are the only medium of bringing them together mentally. They, by their behaviour, help the reader in knowing what the poet had in his mind at time of projecting his work. The ideas, behaviour, beliefs and faith of the poet’s contemporary society can be brought to light only through the characters in his composition. The proper role of the characters in a story can make or mar the quality of a poem. Thus the characters hold a pivotal place in the structure of a mahākāvya.
Kavyashastra (काव्यशास्त्र, kāvyaśāstra) refers to the ancient Indian tradition of poetry (kavya). Canonical literature (shastra) of the includes encyclopedic manuals dealing with prosody, rhetoric and various other guidelines serving to teach the poet how to compose literature.
