In Memory Of Edasseri Govindan Nair, Malayalam Poet & Playwright

The life and works of Edasseri Govindan Nair have assumed greater socio-literary significance after his death. Readers of Malayalam poetry now go back to him with renewed interest; critics recognize him as one of the most important poets of Malayalam. On the one hand, his works attempt to truthfully reflect the untold effects of socio-economic changes which metamorphosed the life of Kerala in the second and third quarters of this century; on the other, they also try to critically redefine - with an inimitable mix of anxiety, irony, humour and objectivity - its changed priorities and concerns. Steeped at once in the local mythological tradition as well as the pressures of modernisation, his poems also represent the ambivalent reaction of a Third World poet of his time. Spread as they are almost equally in the pre and post Independence eras his writings offer eternally valid commentaries on the Gandhian politics with notes of approval, admiration and dissent, evaluate the beginnings of socialist awareness in Kerala and analyse the pitfalls in the short term political strategies and long term economic policies of the Nehruvian era.
Edasseri's writings also afford a very different perspective of the various aspects of womanhood; he has been rightly called the bard of the heroic Motherhood. And long before ecology and environmental pollution were heard of in this state of Kerala, Edasseri has internationalised the impending problem and prophesied the inevitable doom. Now, practitioners of Feminist Literary theory and eco aesthetics have re-discovered in him a kindred spirit. Edasseri also ranks as a major playwright and eminent prose writer of Malayalam. Interestingly he is one poet who has inspired many of his successor poets as a subject of poetry.
