Beschrijving Sociology Through Literature

This book presents a comprehensive study of nearly 100 of Kaaroor’s short stories. Kaaroor Neelakanta Pillai is one among the Big Six of the New Wave in Malayalam literature which began in the mid-1940s. These writers wrote about the common man, peasants, fishermen, rickshaw pullers, under-paid school teachers — their lives, aspirations and vulnerabilities. By treating Kaaroor’s stories as case studies, the book takes a sociological approach to understanding the representation of a wide array of themes: romantic overtones; erotic pursuits; marital episodes; issues of family; behavioural patterns; shades of greed; the idea of spirituality and politics in New Wave Malayalam literature.



One of the first detailed English translations and commentary on Kaaroor’s work, this book will be useful to scholars and researchers of South Asian literature, English literature, linguistics, cultural studies and also to general readers interested in Malayalam literature and to the Malayali Diaspora across the world.
