As a poet Kamala Das merits a place among the best women poets of the twentieth century. She has made enormous contribution to Indian poetry in English by adding a feminist dimension to it, although she is not inclined to admit it. Perhaps deriving her inspiration from her matrilineal background she celebrates womans body and pleads for its integrity in her poems. She writes poetry as only as woman can write and takes pride in the fact of being a woman and that is certainly the starting point of all kinds of feminism. The present volume puts together deeply perceptive articles which study various facets of her poetry from feminist and other perspectives and often with reference to her life, a confessional poet that she is.
