Abstract

Kamala Das is one of the most influential post-independent modern Indian woman poets who struck the core of the society with her very free and frank submission about her very personal longings and sufferings through her poetry. No other Indian poet could show such intensity of personal thought the way Das presented through her writing of verse. Her aggressive confession of her emotional and sexual life was unprecedented in Indian society during the 60’s and even today. She writes about herself to challenge the conventional ideas of the feminine identity by altering the collective view of the concept of womanly appeal. She efficiently dismisses the prevailing social power structures to create for herself a domicile in the male subjugated culture. She changes her existent ostracized place and decides to take her accurate role as a noteworthy part of the society. However, Death is one of the major themes of the poems of Kamala Das. At times she seems to be very much obsessed with the idea of death that she writes about the end of life opulently in a number of her poems in such a fashion that no other poet could express the same such penetratingly. Death serves to her as a liberating force from the sufferings of this man-made world.

Key Words
