ntroduct|on W arnataka is the land that gave birth to seven Jnanapeeth award winners, the highest honour bestowed for ndian literature. W rom the period of Adikavi Pampa, who proclaimed his wish to be reborn as a little bee in the land of annada, annada poetry has come a long way to uvempu and Dattatreya Ramachandra Bendre.Pre-historyW annada poetry has been traced back to around 5th century A.D, though none of those early works have been found.W %he earliest extant poetry in tripadi meter are the appe Arabhatta records of 700 C.E. 5W %he first well known annada poet was Adikavi Pampa who wrote in an archaicstyle of kannada called Halegannada(literally "Old annada"). W His Vikramarjuna Vijaya is hailed as a classic even to this day. W ith this and his other important work Adipurana he set a trend of poetic excellence for the annada poets of the future.6W annada poetry called vachanas, were pithy comments on that period's social, religious and economic conditions. W ore importantly, they hold a mirror to the seed of a social revolution, which caused a radical re-examination of the ideas of caste, creed and religion. 7BhaktiW annada poets have the unique distinction of sowing the seeds of one of the richest forms of classical music: South ndian Carnatic music. %he Dasas or saints, around 15th century, sang the glory of God through poems. %hese poems called Padas were usually of 10 to 20 lines. %hey expressed the desire of the Bhakta or devotee to be one with God. 8W %he Haridasas spread the message of peace, love and bhakti in their Dasa Sahitya, which are also popularly known Devaranamas9anakadasaNavodaya W Navodaya literally means a new birth.W %his indeed was the reincarnation of annada poetry which was dormant for quite a few centuries in the face of British occupation of ndia. W %his period saw greats like Srikanthaiah, uvempu, Bendre, Shivaram aranth writing poetry. 10W t was B. . Srikanthaiah who started this movement of sorts with his translation of a few critically acclaimed English poems of the Romantic period. 11any educated annadigas, especially those were in the teaching profession, realised that they need to express themselves in their mother tongue and started writing poetry in annada. B . SRAN%HAAHW uvempu is a case in point who was convinced by his professor (of British origin) that he should write in his mother tongue. uvempu went on to become a Rashtrakavi(national poet). W His love of nature, realisation of the greatness of man's spirit and the vision to see the blend of nature and God made him more than annada's ordsworth. 12W Another interesting case is that of Shivaram aranth who was a man of great intellect, rock-solid convictions and a profound social sense.13Navya (New)ndian ndependence in 197 brought with itthe promises of freedom and a new genre sprouted in annada poetry. %he torch-bearer of this tradition was Gopalakrishna Adiga . %he Navya poets wrote for and liked disillusioned intellectuals. 1Gopalakrishna AdigaOther genresW annada poetry in the last 50 years has been closely related to social aspects.W %he cruel caste system gave rise to the Bandaya and Dalita genres of poetry. W %he atrocities against women and the general ill-treatment meted out to them in ndian society gave rise to the Stri (oman) genre of poetry.15AwardsW annada poetry has won seven Jnanapeeth awards, the highest for any other ndian language.W Sahitya Academy Awards are also given to annada for their eminent contributions to annada poetry. 16Jnanapeeth awardees 17KuppaIi Venkatappagowda Puttappa (Kuvempu)W ear = 1967 W 4rk = Sri Ramayana Darshanam18attatreya Ramachandra BendreW ear = 1973 W 4rk = Nakutanti (Naku %hanthi)19K.Shivaram KaranthW ear =1977 W 4rk = M44kajjiya Kanasugalu 20aasti Venkatesh AyengarW ear = 1983W ork = hikkaveera Rajendra21V.
