Abstract


According to Toril Moi, In a general way, I see feminism as a political position, femaleness as a matter of biology, and femininity as a set of culturally defined characteristic. Many historians have categorized women wr iters in three categories. The first category consists of writers like Jane Austen, Bronte Sisters and others. The second category includes writers like Emily Dickinson, Virginia Woolf, Sylvia Plath and many others. The first category of writers have strug gled to be simply acknowledged in the intelligentsia while the second group has revolted against the male oriented society and sought to establish an isolated world away from the males. The third group has maintained a balance between the above two extreme s by being both feminine and feminist at the same time. This group of writers have also less talked about the social or political freedom and never visualized a world existing without men. Kamla Das is a part of this third category. In her poetic world thr oughout one could easily find a plea for understanding and compassion from the male counterpart. This paper attempts to find a blend between feminism and postmodernism in the poetry of Kamla Das.
