Body and Mind in Kamala Das' works

Body and mind is described in different manner in Kamala Das’ works especially in her autobiography My Story and in its Malayalam version Ente Katha. What comes out in her works is the idea of body as a variable boundary, a surface whose permeability is politically regulated, or a signifying practice within a cultural field of gender hierarchy and compulsory heterosexuality as Judith Butler calls it. The paper is presented by Dr. Meena T. Pillai Associate Professor, Institute of English, University of Kerala.
