Bengaluru: Veteran critic and versatile writer Dr G S Amur died here on Monday due to age-related ailments, family sources said.

He was 95 and the end came at his residence, they said.

The literateur, known for his proficiency in both Kannada and English, was a recipient of several prestigious honours, including the Sahitya Akademi Award, Rajyotsava Award and Bharatiya Bhasha Award.

His much-acclaimed books in Kannada include ‘Are Kannada Kadambariya Belavanige’, ‘Arthaloka’, ‘Vyavasaya’ and
‘Kaadambariya Swaroopa’.

Amur’s English works included ‘Forbidden Fruit, Views on Indo-Anglian Fiction’ and ‘Colonial Consciousness in
Commonwealth Literature’.

In his condolence message, Chief Minister B S Yediyurappa said Amur got his doctorate for his thesis on ‘The Concept of Comedy: A Re-statement”.

“Amur had equal command over English and Kannada. He was the leading figure in critiquing the modern Kannada
literature,” he said.
