Book description

Even as his 150th birth anniversary draws near, Rabindranath Tagore remains quite under-explored. Nirad C. Chaudhuri predicted that the difficulty in translating Tagore’s work would ascertain that in future his work will lie ‘like a buried city in the past’. The difficulty of translating him in any of the European or modern Indian languages and his position as a cult figure in India contributed to this gap between adulation and understanding. Recent revival of interest in the West in Tagore’s work only partly redresses this imbalance. For, much of Tagore’s central claim to greatness lies in his social thought.
