9780140188547: Selected Short Stories (Penguin Twentieth Century Classics)

Poet, novelist, painter and musician, Rabindranath Tagore (1861 1941) is the grand master of Bengali culture. Written during the 1890s, the stories in this selection brilliantly recreate vivid images of Bengali life and landscapes in their depiction of peasantry and gentry, casteism, corrupt officialdom and dehumanizing poverty. Yet Tagore is first and foremost India's supreme Romantic poet, and in these stories he can be seen reaching beyond mere documentary realism towards his own profoundly original vision.

The very best of [his verse and short stories] convey a great strength and uplifting courage, while containing some of the finest evocations of childhood and natural beauty to be found in 20th century Romantic writing' - The Times.

About the Author:

Rabindranath Tagore (1861-1941), Nobel laureate for literature (1913), was one of modern India's greatest poets and writers
