This English translation of a classical Tamil Cankam text by a Tamil scholar who worked at the Indology Department of the French Institute of Pondicherry from 1962 to 1967 is a rare example of a 'linguistic' translation meant for beginners and foreign students. A true Tamil scholar, the author does not conceal the actual obscurities in the text, but puts forward new readings and original suggestions. A few notes underline his musical fervour and his empathy for the region of Tanjavur where he situates certain poems.
