Naveen Kumar Pathak And Santosh Kumar Mishra

DOI : 10.9780/22307850, Published By : Laxmi Book Publication

Abstract :

'I don't have a philosophy I have a temperament' There are some authors who are more sensitive to their cultural scenario. The conception of art as growing solely from the ego, from artist without any reflection of social realities is obviously, a superficial view1.It seems that an artist always portrays culture with his multiple point of views. His comprehensive approach comes form his imagination and his faith in culture. This imagination might be linked to the people living outside native boundaries or their perseverance power for their culture which forms the rubrics of return.As Warren and Wellek says 'the writer has been a citizen, has pronounced on question of social and political importance, has taken part in the issues of his time'(Wellek 97).If art and society mirror each other, it is not merely the enjoyment which is reflected but the cultural web that makes art more pungent. Individual liberty and cultural instability have been the preamble of AghaShahid Ali's writings.
