.The ninth-century literary criticAnandavardhanadeclared in his
 Dhvanyaloka
that “a single stanza of the poet Amaru ... may provide the taste of love equal to what’s found in whole volumes.”Its verses have been used by poets and critics as examples andstandards to judge other poems by.Andrew Schellingdescribes itas “love poetry original and vivid as that produced anywhere onthe planet”.
Its subject is mostlySringara(erotic love, romantic love) includingaspects such as love, passion, estrangement, longing,rapprochement, joy and sorrow, etc. Greg Bailey notes that it is “asmuch about the social aspects of courting, betrayal, feminineindignance and masculine self-pity as it is about sensuality”.
 Similarly, Schelling notes: “All the flavours or nuances of love aresaid to lie within the book, though you’ll notice that the emphasisfalls more on the bitter taste of separation or betrayal than on thesweetness of consummation.”
