All the ancient Tamil poets of the ancient time were intrigued by the nature of the world without compromising on it. They were amazed at the beauty of the world. Instead of distorting the nature of the world in a way that suited their mental state, they enjoyed expanding and explaining their memory to suit their knowledge through the beauty of the worldly nature. Thus it is the Sangam literatures that add pride to Tamil literature. One of those descriptions is that the hero of Kurunthogai and it explains his feelings. The mental unity of the lovers is the lifeblood of the Agathinai. If the stolen norm of stolen lovers is marriage, it is called morality. (C. Maheswari, Society in Paripathal, pp. 4, 5). Thus, this review article reveals how songs that highlight the leader’s psychology have been incorporated and explored into the psychological theory of psychologist Sigmund Freud.
