Both volumes are supported by a general introduction, introductions to individual sections and biographical notes on the authors.

The contents of this volume, drawn from poetry, drama and prose, demonstrate a creative struggle to rebuild tradition from a new perspective and signal a phenomenon that emphasizes the status of Malayalam as the language of social imagination.
