Udbhaṭa (उद्भट) is the name of an important person (viz., an Ācārya or Kavi) mentioned in Rājaśekhara’s 10th-century Kāvyamīmāṃsā.—A famous rhetorician critic of Alaṃkāraśāstra, belongs to Kāśmīra. However he has composed three works: i. Bhamāhavivaraṇa, ii. Kumārasaṃbhava Kāvya and iii. Alaṃkārasāra-saṃgraha, but at present only one we can found. In the Rājataranginī, Kalhaṇa says that he has the sabhāpati (may be court poet) of king Jayapida and his salaries was one Lacks (hundred thousand) Dinner per day. His doctrine known as the name of Audbhata and Rājaśekhara cited Udbhaṭa’s view’s two times in the Kāvyamīmāṃsā.

Udbhaṭa’s name suggest that he was from Kashmir. He is believed to have been a minister to Jayāpīda (778-813 CE), the king of Kashmir. He is the author of the Kāvyālaṅkāra-saṃgraha which discusses 41 figures of speech (alaṅkāra). He also wrote the Bhāmahavivaraṇa, a commentory on Bhāmaha’s work on peotics. Udbhaṭa follows the views of Bhāmaha in most matters.Source: Kashmiri Overseas Association: Contribution to poetics and dramaturgy
Udbhata:—Apart front his typically Kashmirian name, he is stated by Kalhana to have adorned the court of king Jayapida (C. 779-813 A.D.) of Kashmir. Anandavardhana, in the middle of the 9th century, mentions Udbhata. Thus, Udthata may be placed in the period between the close of the 8th century and the beginning of the 9th.
Besides the lost Bhamaha-vivarana (also called Kavyalankaravivrti), a commentary on Bhamaha’s work, Udbhata appears, on the tesimony of Pratiharenduraja, to have composed a poem entitled Kumarasambhava which is no longer extant. Udbhata probably wrote also a commentary on Bharata’s Natya-sastra. Udbhata’s fame, however, rests on his Kavyalankarasamgraha which is written in six Vargas, or chapters. This work has two commentaries, viz one by Pratiharenduraja and the other by an unknown author.
