A sociological study of Arun Kolatkar


Goutam Karmakar

After 1980s Indian English Poetry sees a rapid change both in form, content, style and theme. Poets during this period become more experimental and liberal in their expression and thought. They begin to write poetry with a modern view on their choice of subjects. Besides, they also want to show their motherland, its society, culture and tradition in their poetry. It means they always keep in their mind Indian ethos and sensibility. So many poets emerge in that period and Arun Kolatkar is one of them. He is a poet of common people. He is not like the other poets as his way of thinking depends on his scrutiny over everything as he judges from rational, logical and realistic pint of view. And in doing so, he also shows society, culture and people living in that society from his own points of view after his observation on these. This paper attempts to highlight Arun Kolatkar’s view and observation of the then Indian society and culture as seen that time.
