There is a number of problems connected with the study and teaching of any Oriental literature in general and of Tamil literature specifically which have to date been relatively ignored, although they are indispensable for a solid knowledge and correct interpretation and understanding of the literature in question. These include problems of authenticity and authorship, of transmission and tradition, writing tools and materials, of relationship of orality to literacy, of Sanskrit to Tamil, the prehistory of Tamil written literature, the numerous texts that have been lost, scholarly lineages and the rediscovery of ancient Tamil literature. The book deals with all these problems as well as with some specific Tamil cultural phenomena such as the concept of "threefold Tamil" or the relationship of literature ("marked") to grammar ("marker"), with the derivation of the term "Tamil" and with the history of Tamil literary historiography. It is an introduction to the study of more than 2000 years of Tamil literary history. By addressing questions which have thus far been almost completely neglected, it also has impact on the interpretative comprehension of Tamil literature and on the teaching of this rich heritage of verbal art.

Literature produced by historically marginalized communities has often been argued to function as an important tool for social change. However, much depends on how this literature is received and interpreted. Since the university operates a potential site for social change, it is significant to enquire whether such literature, specifically that produced by Tamil Dalits, has been incorporated into mainstream curricula. It is equally vital to explore how students respond to Dalit literature. This book traces the evolution of Tamil Dalit writing from the early decades of the twentieth century to the present, and explores its impact on academia. Furthermore, it analyses the literary works of Tamil Dalits and explores how students of Tamil and English literary studies have responded to Tamil Dalit literature and its English translations. The book addresses the following research questions: What were the socio cultural conditions that led to the emergence of contemporary Tamil Dalit literature? What are the dominant themes and trends in contemporary Tamil Dalit literature? Should Dalit Literature necessarily be included in the curriculum? If yes, at what level should it be included? How does academia respond to the emergence of Tamil Dalit literature? In particular, how do students respond to Dalit literature, a literature which has found a place in both English and Tamil literature curricula? How do students interpret the word "Dalit"? How is reception of Tamil Dalit literature influenced by the location and caste of the student? As a literature which has an ideological function, how is it received and understood by readers? In addition, this book provides a detailed examination of the ability of Dalit literature to bring about social change.
