Book Description Indialog Publisher, 2002. Softcover. Book Condition: New. The progress of our soul is like a perfect poem. It has an infinite idea which once realised makes all movements full of meaning and joy. But if we detach its movements from that ultimate idea, if we do not see the infinite rest and only see the infinite motion, then existence appears to us a monstrous evil, impetuously rushing towards an unending aimlessness. Gitanjali, Tagore`s Nobel winning masterpiece was first published in 1912. These immensely touching verses were written in Bengali in 1910, after he lost his father, wife, second daughter and youngest son. Later he translated these verses when he set sail for England a third time. He showed the translations to his friend William Rothenstein after much persuasion. Rothenstein subsequently showed it to William Butler Yeats, who went on to write the Introduction for the book. Renowned for its lyrical beauty and spiritual poignancy, Gitanjali is a classic in its own right, which won Tagore the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1913. Printed Pages: 120.

Book Description Prakash Books, 2011. Softcover. Book Condition: New. Gitanjali or the ?Song Offerings` in English translation (1911) is a volume of 103 poems selected by Tagore form his several Bengali books of poetry. It was when he learned from William Rothenstein of western interest in them that he translated them into English. Chiefly for this volume, Tagore became the first non-European to win the Noble Prize in Literature in 1913. W. B. Yeats, in the introduction to Tagore`s Gitanjali, Writes that his volume has "stirred my blood as nothing has for Years." He explains, "These Lyrics. display in their thought a world i have dreamed of all my life long." Yeats tells us that Tagore`s songs are not only respected and admired by the scholarly class, but also that they are sung in the fields by peasants. Gitanjali is poetry of life-affirmation: life with its colour and abundance, melancholy and mystery. It is a record of the poet`s intimate response to the splendour of the universe. His poetry in translation was viewed as spiritual, and this together with his mesmerizing persona gave him a prophet-like aura in the west but this "elegant prose and magical poetry" still remains largely unknown outside the confines of Bengal. Key Feature * Rabindranath Tagore`s Most widely-read Poetry Collection. * Includes beautifully written poems about love, life-affirmation, Philosophy and Spirituality. * One of Tagore`s best works that won him the Nobel Prize for Literature. * Fascinating read for all, Specially Poetry Lovers. Printed Pages: 124. Bookseller Inventory # 28380

Book Description Peacock/ Atlantic Publishers & Distributors (P) Ltd., 2011. Softcover. Book Condition: New. The initial fame of Rabindranath Tagore (1861-1941) who received the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1913 was due to Gitanjali which was published from London in 1912, although Tagore had published another Gitanjali in Bengali in 191. Deeply rooted in the Indian soil and steeped in the Upanishadic thoughts as the poems were, nevertheless the reception of the book in the West was simply overwhelming. Great poets like W.B. Yeats, Ezra Pound sang paean to it. Yeats was visibly excited over the arrival of a great poet, whom he hailed as ?greater than any of us?, while Pound too was moved by ?the saner stillness? of the poems as opposed to ?our clanguor of mechanisms? While eminent critics have put on record their genuine admiration of the translation through the past hundred years, devotion of the heart and simplicity of the song seem to be mutually complementary in the poems. The simplicity may have been informed by the very mood and tenor of most of the poems, which is one of utter and humble submission; a happy contentment of surrender and union that brings him to the realization that the loudness and flashiness of ?ornaments? are not only redundant but out of tune at such a moment. Gitanjali, with its ideas, images, its music of utterance, its divine joy, and also its occasional dark clouds of sorrow and anguish, seems to run through the interstices of Tagore?s stories, plays, songs, dance-drama, and even non-fictional prose till the end. After going through the volume every time the reader too would (like Wilfred Owen) perhaps feel like singing in unison with the poet ?what I have seen is unsurpassable? The new edition of Gitanjali: Song Offerings will offer a stimulating reading to the lovers of Tagore all over the world. A comprehensive Introduction has been given to provide deeper insights into the poet and his great work. Contents : Foreword?Mohit K. Ray; Introduction?Rama Kundu; Gitanjali: Song Offerings; Original Introduction to Gitanjali (1912)?W.B. Yeats; Sketch of Tagore?William Rothenstein Printed Pages: 48. Bookseller Inventory # 68992
