(Dates of birth and death unknown.) Ancient Indian author and theoretician of literature of the sixth and seventh centuries.

Dandin was the author of The Mirror of Poetry, a treatise on the theory of literature, and the novel Adventures of the Ten Princes, which is genetically connected with the fairytale epos of Gunadhya’s Brhatkatha. The novel Story About the Beauty From Avanti is attributed to Dandin. As a theoretician Dandin developed a theory of tropes and also worked out a theory of style. His concepts influenced the further development of the theory of literature and poetics in India, including the study of alankaras and the theory of dhvani.
