The Perception of Power in Determining the Orature with Reference to Cennannurati
Arif Khan P Y
Abstract: The peculiarities of the oral text and the written text will constitute the utmost inquisition of this paper. The oral literary traditions are manifestations of a subjugated community with secondary or third rate status; then, what are the idiosyncrasies of those heroic epic songs about Chengannur Kunjathi, a slave, which has been circulating among the Parayas of Central Travancore, Also the paper tries to analyze it with the Foucauldian perspective of power/knowledge. In general, the verbal transcript of an orally performed traditional song has been problematized from a variety of angles by questioning its boundaries, apparent fixity, performative representativity, situational and cultural contextuality, co- textual and intertextual environment, discursive function and ideological bias.
