About this Item: Penguin Books India, 2000. Softcover. 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.

About this Item: Penguin Books India, 2011. Softcover. Condition: New. First edition. Poet, novelist, painter and musician Rabindranath Tagore created the modern short story in India. Written in the 1890s, during a period of relative isolation, his best stories?included in this selection?recreate vivid images of life and landscapes. They depict the human condition in its many forms: innocence and childhood; love and loss; the city and the village; the natural and the supernatural. Tagore is India?s great Romantic. These stories reflect his profoundly modern, original vision. Translated and introduced by William Radice, this edition includes selected letters, bibliographical notes and a glossary. Printed Pages: 352. Seller Inventory # 20659

About this Item: Visva-Bharati, 2008. Hardcover. Condition: New. Putting two works together in a single volume can bring out contrasts but also unexpected connections between them. On the one hand, we have here two very different plays by Rabindranath Tagore: Dakghar, (?The Post Office?, 1912) is poignant, tragic, even bleak in some of its implications. In his portrait of the dying boy Amal, Rabindranath must have had in his mind the Grief and bereavements he had suffered in the preceding ten years, culminating in the Death of his younger son Samindra in 1907. Anyone looking for undercurrents of agnosticism and despair in Rabindranath?s deep Religious Faith can certainly find them in Dakghar. The visionary promise of the arrival of the King, and of Amal?s Employment beyond death as the king?s postman, is not shared by all the characters. ?What use is starlight to me?? cries Madhab Datta as Amal dies; the letter from the King that the Headman has handed to the boy is a blank sheet of paper; and we cannot feel wholly convinced when Thakurda claims to be able to read the King?s Writing on it. Taser desh (?Card Country?, 1933, revised and expanded 1939) is, by contrast, cheerful, humorous, satirical; as infused with the spirit of life as Dakghar is dominated by death. Printed Pages: 334.
