9780140183665: Selected Poems (Twentieth Century Classics)

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

Product Description:

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.
