Description

The present study, comprising three articles, attempts to highlight the cultural aspects essayed splendidly in the classical Sangam poems (c. B.C. 100–A.D. 250). Its first essay expressively deliberates on ‘Cāṉṟōr’ – a specific term of cultural significance. By expounding the contextual meaning of the recurring term employed in Tamil literary works since ancient times, the article brings forth the cultural mobility or shift that has taken place in the lives of Tamils. The second essay vividly dialogues on ethical principles of Tamils of bygone era. It poignantly deals with almost all ethics or virtues upheld by Tamils in their puṟam (exterior actions) lives which include food culture and their beliefs. The last essay addresses the nuanced appropriate akam (interior feelings) themes of Saṅgam poems. It demonstrates how some birds and beasts are skillfully and unequivocally depicted as codes/symbols just to essay the interior feelings of man and woman. The study, though not all-encompassing, speaks out certain fascinating facts about the culture of Tamils of ‘Heroic Age’ by considering and analyzing some excellent poems of five tiṇais viz. kuriñci, mullai, marudam, neydal and pālai.
