Such narratives were common in scholarship published in the late s and s. At this time scholars described musical traditions as autonomous entities that adapted to or survived the threat of Western impact. In Daniel Neuman suggested that an ethnomusicology of culture change would need to come to terms with Westernization.
In Amanda Weidman argued that South Indian classi- cal music was not threatened by Western modernity but reinvented due to eforts of social actors to negotiate colonial modernity.
Yet the division of the study of music and literature into two disciplines, I contend, is problematic because it discourages the analysis of the relationship between song and poetry. One thus begins to wonder whether the division of the study of music and literature into two disciplines tends to obscure rather than illuminate. Perhaps an even more signiicant problem in the scholarship of contemporary South Asia is the routine failure to account for regions outside of North and South 10 Introduction India and for languages other than major ones, such as English, Tamil, Hindi, Ban- gla, and Urdu.
It is thus easy to ind secondary scholarship about North and South Indian classical music, Hindi and Tamil poetry, or Indian literature written in English, but scholarship about song and poetry from countries such as Sri Lanka, the Maldives, or Bhutan is sparse if not completely absent.
Because Anglophone South Asian studies has tended to represent South Asia through the lens of North and South India, our understanding of literature and the performing arts through- out twentieth-century South Asia remains inadequate. Yet they remain inadequate be- cause they tend to center the attention on the dyadic relationship between India and the West.
Our understanding of literature and music in twentieth-century South Asia has thus remained somewhat blind to the power relations that existed within modern South Asia. When the middle class in Sri Lanka set out to modernize song and poetry, they did not do so exclusively in relation to the West. In this monograph I propose an asymmetric triadic model in which Sri Lankan songwriters and poets attempted to create works that responded both to the West and to North India, but more oten directly to North India.
Although Pollock reserves the term for the exploration of premodern literature, this study asserts that the concept has relevance for the twentieth century too. In the early twentieth century, Sinhalese playwrights modeled a new form of local theater nurthi from North Indian Parsi theater, while Sin- halese songwriters of gramophone song imitated the melodies and short and long syllables of Hindi ilm songs. In the s Sinhala songwriters modeled the radio opera on Sanskrit literature and North Indian classical music, while other songwriters ad- opted the theory of musical nationalism that Professor S.
Ratanjankar brought to the island from North India. R E SE A R C H Given the thousands of Sinhala songs and poems that could be excerpted in a study about song and poetry in the twentieth century, one of the biggest challenges was to decide which works to translate and discuss.
I also studied the songs as texts printed in compilations of song or Sinhala- language monographs and chapters in edited volumes that analyzed the lives and works of songwriters. Many of the examples of poetry found in this study were accessed in sources at the Sri Lankan National Library.
Others I found in edited collections of poetry, such as those edited by P. I also attempted to broaden my knowledge by studying other writings that the songwriters and poets authored in Sinhala newspapers, magazines, literary journals, and books published between and However, underlying all these contributions is a single noetic purpose: to provide their readers with a codiication of the world that is cognitively and aesthetically credible and, in so doing, to deine what is right and wrong with the universe, what is consequential, and what should be remembered.
During the colonial period, for example, many poets and songwriters attempted to cre- ate cynosures for public attention and raised consciousness about the necessity of practicing the local religion and reforming the local language.
At the end of the colonial period, which witnessed the commencement of World War II, poets and songwriters turned away from didacticism and entertained readers with romantic themes. In the postcolonial period poets and songwriters crystallized newer ways of looking at experience and sacralized or desacralized tradition by embracing or rejecting local folklore, North Indian culture, and modernist poetry.
Introduction 13 Another basic premise of this book is that twentieth-century songwriters, poets, and their works existed within a context simultaneously local, regional, and global. Absences speak as loudly as presences: as Tamil-Sinhalese relations wors- ened in the mid-twentieth century, Sinhalese songwriters and poets tended not to engage with South Indian culture despite a rich history of Sinhalese-Tamil musical interaction in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries.
Concerning the former, the chapters of this book are organized chronologically, according to the appearance of the primary examples.
I am convinced that peri- odizing is valuable when one wants to explore how what happened in the s and s impacted the trajectory of song and poetry in the s and s, which then inluenced the transformation of song and poetry in the s and s. I do not imply that the history of Sinhala song and poetry is a single-stranded chronol- ogy, nor do I make teleological assumptions that suggest what happened in chapter 6 was destined to occur because of what happened in chapter 1. Within each chapter I juxtapose works created by songwriters with contemporaneous poems composed by poets.
I hope to show how Sinhalese songwriters and poets in the twentieth century tended to draw inluence from the same contexts. Consequently, they either questioned the norms of their respective art forms in similar ways and for similar reasons chapters 1, 2, 3, 5 , or advocated the opposite of the contemporaries chapter 4.
Chapter 1 analyzes how songwriters and poets encouraged the Sinhalese to return to Buddhism and reject Westernization. Here I attempt to explore an overlooked form of cultural nationalism, one fueled more by capitalism than the desire to cul- tivate patriotic sentiment or ethnic loyalty. Chapter 2 turns to the songwriters and poets who emphasized the importance of language over religion and launched their attack against North Indian inluences. Chapter 3 centers on a school of songwriters and poets who rejected didacticism and sought to entertain their readers through works that engaged with Bengali, English, and French literature about romance.
Part 2 moves on to the songwriters and poets who rose to prominence ater independence. Chapter 4 investigates the emergence of two new genres that aimed to restore a measure of authenticity to Sinhala song and poetry through what I describe as neoclassical and modernist aesthetics, re- spectively.
Chapter 5 turns to the way one songwriter and one poet asserted that the authentic culture of the Sri Lankan nation was rural folklore.
Some scholars may take issue with my use of the terms neoclassical or modern- ist. Perhaps they believe that such European terms should not be used to discuss Sri Lankan cultural forms. I too endorse this view, but with re- straint. I thus believe my use of these terms is appropriate. For example, I use the term modernism in chapter 4 to describe the verse composed by Sinhala poets such as Siri Gunasinghe, who measured themselves against the standards of excel- lence championed by modernist poets such as T.
Eliot and Robert Frost. Further, scholars who believe that the terms modernism and romanticism should not be applied to South Asian culture have failed to take note that a consensus is growing among scholars of modern Indian literature that the thematic development of Hindi, Urdu, and Bangla poetry was consistent to a considerable extent.
I use the term consistent to refer to the transitions between and from didacticism to romanticism to modernism and social realism. Alwis Perera and his colleagues chapter 3. Finally, I turn to the modernism or social realism of Siri Gunasinghe chapter 4 , Gunadasa Amarasekera chapter 5 , and Mahagama Sekera chapter 6.
Yet, in my judgment, the term nicely refers to the creation of both poetry and song. Today the ields of ethnomusicology and musicology share many topics and goals. I therefore see no reason to shy away from evoking a topic that is also central to Western musicology.
