    The Tirukkural is one of tile most important works in the Tamil language. This is reflected in some of the other names by which the text is known: Tamil Marai (Tamil Vedas); Poyyamozhi (words that never fail); and Deiva nool (divine text). Silappatikaram has many references to historical events and personalities, although it has not been accepted as a reliable source of history by many historians because of the inclusion of many exaggerated events and achievements to the ancient Tamil kings. Manimekhalai is a Tamil epic, the sequel to the Shilapaddikaram, which lies been dated by various scholars between the second and sixth centuries CE. The Shilapaddikaram, a verse    epic, narrates die story of Kovalan and Kannaki, a married couple. Tolkappiyam, deals with orthography, phonology, morphology, semantics, prosody and the   subject matter of literature.
