Manilal Dwivedi (1858–1898)

The works of Manilal Dwivedi (26 September 1858 – 1 October 1898) consists of poems, plays, essays, adaptation of an English novel, book-reviews, literary criticism, research, editing, translations, compilations and autobiography that Gujarati writer and philosopher Manilal Dwivedi created over his lifetime.[1] Manilal's writing career started in 1876 with a poem, Shikshashatak, and continued till his death in 1898.[2] After Manilal's death, his most works were edited and published by Gujarati writer and scholar Dhirubhai Thaker, who is considered to be an authority on Manilal Dwivedi.[3]

Manilal's most writings appeared in his own monthlies Priyamvada and Sudarshan, which he edited from 1885 until his death. He translated several works into Gujarati from English, Sanskrit and Hindi. He offered critical editions with English translation of various Sanskrit and Prakrit works in the Gaekwad Oriental Series of Baroda.
