Comparative Literature serves as an intellectually stimulating endeavor in enhancing the value of literature in a broader context. And to find similarity in thoughts, concepts and cultural expressions across different lands and intellectual milleu is a rewarding exercise. Eliot would say that the artists of anytime form an unconscious community. British Metaphysical poets of the seventeenth century England and Tamil Classic Kallitokai poets of Cankam age form such an unconscious community through the intellectualisation of emotions of love. Both these anthologies were acclaimed as the delight of the learned as the poems render aesthetic and intellectual delight. The poems are endless profusions of the Dialectics of love which finds its finest expression through the images. The book explores the universal tendency in thoughts, emotions and literary style in these poems which postulates a lot of unities and harmonies against the dichotomies and diversities through the study of images.
