Women’s Predicament in Selected Poems of Kamala Das

Feminism has been used and interpreted in numerous shades of meaning, but the core idea being one and the same that women should have equal rights, power and opportunity on par with men in a society. Kamala Das' quest for identity is directly the progeny of an old social set up, oriented towards the total annihilation of the feminine personality. Love is the major theme of her poetry but the depth of her distress seems to have left a constant sting in her soul and that leads to her identity with a certain tincture of pang. The ever-changing reality of life inevitably reflects itself in literature. The position of women in society is no exception to this characteristic. The place of woman all over the world particularly in India has been undergoing a rapid change today. This coincides with the starting and the growth of Indian writing in English.
