    Kamala Das as a poetess is Lawrentine, as she draws from flesh and blood contact, attraction and repulsion met in love, love and hate theme, give and take relationship. She is a poetess of the body, not the soul, but wants to liberate the soul of womankind. Her poetry is the poetry of love, the thirst of it. spiritually she may e sick, but is a poetess of the body.

    The politics of poetry and the poet, Kamala is one such name doing politics with poetry, writing the poetry of feminism, a media-savvy politician, a poetry-writer. Poetry as the politics of feminism and the feminist as a leader.

    Kamala dash truly represents the exact picture of how society treats with women and how it destroys their freshness, feelings of independence and freedom in the hand of male dominated society

An Introduction

I don't know politics but I know the names
Of those in power, and can repeat them like

Any language I like? The language I speak,
Becomes mine, its distortions, its queernesses
All mine, mine alone.
It is half English, halfIndian, funny ...
