Description
About the Book

The heterogeneous character of Thyagaraja's lyrics is a recurrent source of academic discourse. The lyrics present a socio-cultural unit and refer to a plurality of achievements. An uncontested view is that, Thyagaraja stands for a single ideal of the culture of devotion.

Prayer is the resultant of Bhakthi and Bhakthi establishes its due station as a Rasa. Prayer rests on and rises from the triple base of, music, devotion and poetry. Thyagaraja offered "Ragarathna malika" to Rama.

Lyrics do picture the environmental overturns. Political effervescence and cultural efflorescence characterise the period. Politics and Poetics, Money and Metaphysics are isolated and this operational scalene throws a challenge to the assumed theoretical dualism between material and cultural. Art becomes a social factor when society makes it one. Social realism is the realistic depiction in art of contemporary life as a means of social comment.
