Tamil Authors whose literary works are public domain



Literary works of Many 20th C Tamil Writers are in public domain


Tamilnadu has been fortunate to have several distinguished tamil authors enriching the Tamil literature during the 20th Century. Here we present the works of some of them. Tamilnadu Govt, through special arrangements with their legal heirs/families have placed the literary works of a select group of "tamil authors in public domain". .
