Devi leela

Malayalam literature

The term Malayalam literature refers to Literature written in Malayalam language. Malayalam is the language spoken by nearly thirty million people, mainly the inhabitants of the state of Kerala and the union territory of Lakshadweep Islands in India. Malayalam is a Dravidian language and thus has close association with the other Dravidian languages, especially Tamil. Historically, Kerala had been receptive to foreign influence and this has had effect on the Malayalam literature also, which has evolved over time.
