A.N. KRISHNARAO (1908-71), Kannada novelist, short story writer, playwright, biographer, essayist and critic, wrote nearly two hundred and fifty books. But it is as novelist that he is best remembered. A prolific author who produced a new novel practically every month, his experiments with form and style influenced a whole generation of writers and helped in establishing novel as the most important medium of expression of the modern writer in Kannada.
His novels deal with a variety of interrelated themes-the organic community based on traditional values and its disintegration under the pressures of modern life; the family and its breakdown; sex and marriage; the artist and his world; evils of society like prostitution and commercialization of values unrolling a vast panorama of a changing society caught in the conflict of tradition and modernity in the first half of the twentieth century Karnataka.
Krishnarao wrote for the people, dreamt their dreams and shaped their myths. He is a writer's writer and his language has, in the words of Ta Ra Su, 'variety, intensity, speed and sensu ousness'. H.M. Nayak has aptly observed that the fourth decade of this century in Kannada would go down in history as the Krishnarao decade.
