The ancient Tamil poetic corpus of the Cankam is at the same time a national treasure and a common battle ground for linguists and historians alike. Going back to oral predecessors from about the early first millennium, it became part of a canon, slowly fell into near oblivion and was finally rediscovered and printed in the 19th century. The present study follows up the complex historical process of its transmission through 2000 years.
The book addresses problems and topics which have so far been largely ignored, in spite of being of fundamental importance for successful teaching and correct understanding of Tamil literary heritage which spans some 2000 years of development.
