Kavitrayam - Errana

Errana was a great Telugu poet in the court of Prolaya Vemareddy (1325–1353), the founder of Reddy dynasty. Prolaya Vema Reddy established The Reddy Dynasty (1325–1424) with capital of Addanki of his Kingdom. Later it was shifted to Kondaveedu. Yerrana was also known as Yellapregada or Errapregada. He was honored with the title Prabandha Parameshwara (the supreme lord of Prabandha) and Shambudasusu. He belongs to the Kavitrayam (Trinity of poets) who translated the Mahabharata. He was a poet in Peda komati Vema Reddy's court. He completed the translation by finishing the remaining part of 3rd chapter.

The Sanskrit Mahabharata was translated into Telugu over a period of several centuries (11th to 14th centuries AD). Errana was one of the kavitrayam (the trinity of poets) who translated Mahabharatam. The other two poets were Nannaya and Tikkana. Nannaya translated two and a half parvamulu (Chapters) of Mahabharatam. Tikkana translated the remaining chapters starting from the 4th, leaving the half finished third parvam, Aranya Parvamu (the chapter of Forest), for Errana. Errana started the remaining half of the Aranya Parvamu with the style of Nannaya and ended it with the style of Tikkana as a bridge between the parts translated by Nannaya and Tikkana. He used half Sanskrit and half Telugu in his Telugu translation of Sanskrit Mahabharatam. (The chapters or divisions in RAMAYANA called as 'Kandams' and chapters or divisions of MAHABHARATAM called as 'Parvams')
