Abstract: Kamala Das was one the illustrious poets in the history of Indian English literature. She represented a typical middle class Indian woman’s dual conflict of ideas through the portrayal of her own persona with the backdrop of Indian life and culture in her versatile poetry. Kamala Das was a champion of woman’s secret longings, aspirations and desires. Her poems are full of her personal feelings as a woman and the realization of own self. The present paper focuses on the voice she lends for every woman agonized in marriage and the reawakening of her soul, which she submits to God.
Keywords: Aspirations, biographical elements, versatile poetry
