Description

This antiquarian book contains a collection of three hundred and twenty short poems by Rabindranath Tagore. Translated from Bengali into English by Tagore himself, these beautiful poems – somewhat reminiscent of Haiku – will appeal to any discerning lover of poetry. They constitute a beautiful compendium of poesy worthy of inclusion in any collection. Rabindranath Tagore (1861 – 1941) was a Bengali polymath who reformed Bengali literature and music through his employment of ‘Contextual Modernism’ in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. We are republishing this antiquarian volume now complete with a specially commissioned new biography of the author.
