Abstract

Literature is a mirror of time. Sangam period literature to contemporary literature depicts the love and heroism that occupy an important place in the lives of Tamils. In addition, the traditions of parable, metaphor, imagination, implication, and flesh are dealt with. Thus, innovations that are considered contemporary literature also come out with image, content, and technique. This article is based on Meera's 'Oosigal' poetry, which traces the social ills, the tendency of politicians, and the rich to discriminate between rich and poor. The mockery of society is being created in the world of novel poetry with the expectation that reform will take place. This article makes it clear that the poet Meera's ‘Oosigal’ explores the social problems of poetry with humor. ‘Oosigal’ poetry may be situated to skin political, social, religious, and personal insults.
