9780140183665: Selected Poems (Twentieth Century Classics)

Acclaimed by Forster and Pound, for Yeats the poet whose poetry 'stirred my blood as nothing has for years', Tagore was and remains India's greatest writer this century. Prolific and innovatory as a poet, novelist, dramatist, musician and painter, he was also a leading figure in the Nationalist movement, an intimate of Gandhi, a vastly influential educationalist and philosopher and a luminary in world culture. William Radice's selections and translations from the Bengali reintroduce Tagore to a new generation of Western readers.

Review:

The Oxford translations present an opportunity to take stock of Tagore's achievement and its historical moment. The series not only gives us an overview of the vast range of his work but is a fresh attempt to assuage the anxiety that Tagore has seldom been well translated ( Amit Chaudhuri, London Review of Books)

Book Description Penguin Books India, 2000. Softcover. Book Condition: New. The poems of Rabindranath Tagore are among the most haunting and tender in Indian and world literature, expressing a profound and passionate human yearning. His ceaselessly inventive works deal with such subjects as the interplay between God and mortals, the eternal and the transient, and the paradox of an endlessly changing universe that is in tune with unchanging harmonies. Poems such as "Earth" and "In the Eyes of a Peacock" present a picture of natural processes unaffected by human concerns, while others, as in "Recovery14," convey the poet`s bewilderment about his place in the world. And exuberant works such as "New Rain" and "Grandfather`s Holiday" describe Tagore`s sheer joy at the glories of nature or simply in watching a grandchild play Printed Pages: 208.
