The aim of this work is to draw upon the fullness of the epic poem Madhuravijayam. An attempt to analyse the writings of Gangadevi carefully and systematically, shows that these writings are rich in historical accounts of Vijayanagar Empire. There is, of course, no dearth of research papers or book-lets on this epic poem; but a single and systematic study of the Madhuravijayam in its literary and historical perspectives, has, to my knowledge, not yet been undertaken. With this in view, it has taken up the work a literary study of the Madhuravijayam. Indeed, Gangadevi stands out among the poetesses in the field of Sanskrit literature. Intelligible in itself, Gangadevi writings need no further elucidation for the learned to understand and appreciate them. But, for further clarification of Alankaras, Rasa-delineation etc., the Sanskrit commentary "Bhavaprakasika" by Subrahmanya Shastri has been frequently referred in this work. This work attempts to show how Gangadevi's reinforces the historical facts and restores literary aspects. This is what may be considered to be the contribution of Gangadevi to the world of secular Sanskrit literature
