The Rise Of Marathi Literature
Marathi literature finds its roots in 10th century (or even before that). It began with religious writings that were owned by the Warkari sects. The early saint-poets like Mukundaraj & Vivekasindhu were at the forefront and these were succeeded by the very talented poets of the later period like Eknath, Mukteswar, Tukaram.
The Marathi Literature can be divided into two major sections – the old Marathi literature (1000-1800 AD) and the modern day Marathi literature (1800 onwards). The old literature majorly consists of devotional and religious poems. The poets of that era believed in following a rhyming scheme, a specific metre and those authentic choices of words. On the other hand the modern day Marathi literature has adorned various amazing history anecdotes along with the modern version of poetry. The current literature also covers technology and science. These days this Marathi literature is available in the form of books as well as Marathi e-books.
The British era witnessed a major transition in the Marathi literature. Prominent writers like Jyotiba Phule & Lokahitavadi came to forefront and started penning thoughts about various topics and their freedom fight in Marathi.
Marathi literature saw a new turn with the Marathi newspaper entering the scene. In the late 1800s and early 1900s Marathi prose and poetry was majorly based on depicting human emotions and various stages of human life.
Marathi drama began spreading its wings during 1960s and 1970s and today can boast of some fine scripts and movies based on the drama novels. Prominent writers such as Vasant Kanetkar, Kusumagraj and Vijay Tendulkar have been looked at when it comes to Marathi drama.
