About this Item: Tuttle Publishing, United States, 2004. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English. Brand new Book. Awarded the Noble Prize for Literature in 1913, Rabindranath Tagore (1861- 1941) is considered the most important poet of modern-day India. He was also a distinguished author, educator, social reformer, and philosopher. Today, Tagore along with Mahatma Gandhi is prized as the foremost intellectual and spiritual advocates of India's liberation from imperial rule. This inspiring collection of Tagore's poetry represents his "simple prayers of common life." Each of the seventy-seven prayers is an eloquent affirmation of the divine in the face of both joy and sorrow. Like the Psalms of David, they transcend time and speak directly to the human heart. The spirit of this collection may be best symbolized by a single sentence by Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan, the renowned philosopher and statesman who served as president of India: "Rabindranath Tagore was one of the few representatives of the universal person to whom the future of the world belongs.".

About this Item: Independently Published, United States, 2019. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English. Brand new Book. Rabindranath Tagore (1861-1941) was the first Asian to win a Nobel Prize. Nationalism is based on lectures delivered by him during the First World War. While the nations of Europe were doing battle, Tagore urged his audiences in Japan and the United States to eschew political aggressiveness and cultural arrogance. His mission, one might say, was to synthesize East and West, tradition and modernity. The lectures were not always well received at the time, but were chillingly prophetic. As Ramachandra Guha shows in his brilliant and erudite Introduction, it was by reading and speaking to Tagore that those founders of modern India, Gandhi and Nehru, developed a theory of nationalism that was inclusive rather than exclusive. Tagore's Nationalism should be mandatory reading in today's climate of xenophobia, sectarianism, violence and intolerance. Seller Inventory # APC9781070765631

About this Item: Echo Library, United States, 2020. Paperback. Condition: New. Reprint of an Earlier ed. Language: English. Brand new Book. Romain Rolland (1866-1944) was a French dramatist, novelist, essayist, art historian and mystic who was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1915. He was a leading supporter of Stalin in France and also noted for his correspondence with and influence on Sigmund Freud. Accepted into the Ecole normale superieure in 1886, he first studied philosophy but his independence of spirit led him to abandon that so as not to submit to the dominant ideology. He received his degree in history in 1889 and after spending two years in Rome returned to France in 1895 where he received his doctoral degree. Over the next two decades he taught at various lycees in Paris before directing the newly established music school of the Ecole des Hautes Etudes Sociales from 1902-11. In 1903 he was appointed to the first chair of music history at the Sorbonne, and through his advocacy for a 'people's theatre' he made a significant contribution towards the democratizaation of the theatre. As a humanist he embraced the work of the philosophers of India, publishing works on both Rabindranath Tagore and Mohandas Ghandi, and he was also a lifelong pacifist. However, he was first and foremost a writer and, assured that literature would provide him with a modest income, he resigned from the university in 1912, and as a novelist he is best remembered for the 10-volume sequence Jean-Christophe (1904-1912), the hero, a musical genius, becoming a vehicle for Rolland's views on music, social matters and understanding between nations. His book on Ghandi, published in 1924, contributed to the Indian leader's wider reputation and the two men met in 1931. This English language edition, translated by Catherine D. Groth, includes a frontispiece portrait of Ghandi. Seller Inventory # AAV9781847021052

An early advocate of sexual freedoms, he had an influence on both D. H. Lawrence and Aurobindo, and inspired E. M. Forster's novel Maurice Born in Hove in Sussex, Carpenter was educated at nearby Brighton College where his father was a governor. His brothers Charles, George and Alfred also went to school there. When he was ten, he displayed a flair for the piano. His academic ability appeared relatively late in his youth, but was sufficient enough to earn him a place at Trinity Hall, Cambridge. Whilst there he began to explore his feelings for men. One of the most notable examples of this is his close friendship with Edward Anthony Beck (later Master of Trinity Hall), which, according to Carpenter, had "a touch of romance." Beck eventually ended their friendship, causing Carpenter great emotional heartache. Carpenter graduated as 10th Wrangler in 1868. After university he joined the Church of England as a curate, "as a convention rather than out of deep Conviction." In 1871 he was invited to become tutor to the royal princes George Frederick (late King George V) and his elder brother, Prince Albert Victor, Duke of Clarence, but declined the position. The job instead went to his lifelong friend and fellow Cambridge student John Neale Dalton. Carpenter continued to visit Dalton while he was tutor, and was presented with photographs of themselves by the princes. Seller Inventory # APC9781535080545

About this Item: Columbia University Press, United States, New York, 1995. Paperback. Condition: Very Good. Mahatma Gandhi's ideas and achievements rank preeminent among leaders of the twentieth century. Dennis Dalton's study of Gandhi's life and thought identifies the crucial link between his political philosophy and his activism and sets forth new ideas about Gandhi's inclusive style of politics. Dalton begins by tracing Gandhi's formative experiences in South Africa between 1893 and 1914 where his method of nonviolent resistance, or satyagraha, was born and melded with his concept of swaraj - personal and political liberation. After examining Gandhi's emergence as a national leader in India between 1919 and 1922, Dalton provides an indepth analysis of two of his signal triumphs: the 1930 civil disobedience campaign against the British and the 1947 Calcutta fast for Hindu-Muslim unity. Dalton brings fresh insight to these important years by culling information from unpublished sources and interviews with numerous participants, including those who joined Gandhi's Salt March to the sea. Dalton places Gandhi's ideas within the historical context of his interaction with the British government and with the religious communities of India. He pays particular attention to the role of religious faith in Gandhi's social reform, how his views on the caste system affected his political activism, and his debates with the Marxist theoretician M. N. Roy and the Nobel laureate Rabindranath Tagore. Dalton concludes with a stirring comparison of Gandhi to Martin Luther King, Jr. and Malcolm X and assesses the lasting importance of Gandhi's ideas. "His claim to uniqueness rests both on the originality of his thought and even more on his uncanny ability to put his theory into practice, " writes Dalton. "Because key ideas like freedom and power so concerned him, the creative ways that he translated them into action remain exciting today, almost fifty years after his death.". The book has been read, but is in excellent condition. Pages are intact and not marred by notes or highlighting. The spine remains undamaged. Seller Inventory # CIN000426829

About this Item: Createspace Independent Publishing Platform, United States, 2018. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English. Brand new Book. Edward Carpenter (29 August 1844 - 28 June 1929) was an English socialist poet, philosopher, anthologist, and early activist for rights for homosexuals. A poet and writer, he was a close friend of Rabindranath Tagore, and a friend of Walt Whitman. He corresponded with many famous figures such as Annie Besant, Isadora Duncan, Havelock Ellis, Roger Fry, Mahatma Gandhi, Keir Hardie, J. K. Kinney, Jack London, George Merrill, E. D. Morel, William Morris, Edward R. Pease, John Ruskin, and Olive Schreiner. As a philosopher he was particularly known for his publication of Civilisation, Its Cause and Cure in which he proposes that civilisation is a form of disease that human societies pass through. An early advocate of sexual freedoms, he had an influence on both D. H. Lawrence and Sri Aurobindo, and inspired E. M. Forster's novel Maurice. Early life: Born in Hove in Sussex, Carpenter was educated at nearby Brighton College where his father was a governor. His brothers Charles, George and Alfred also went to school there. When he was ten, he displayed a flair for the piano. His academic ability appeared relatively late in his youth, but was sufficient to earn him a place at Trinity Hall, Cambridge. Whilst there he began to explore his feelings for men. One of the most notable examples of this is his close friendship with Edward Anthony Beck (later Master of Trinity Hall), which, according to Carpenter, had "a touch of romance". Beck eventually ended their friendship, causing Carpenter great emotional heartache. Carpenter graduated as 10th Wrangler in 1868.After university he joined the Church of England as a curate, "as a convention rather than out of deep Conviction". In 1871 he was invited to become tutor to the royal princes George Frederick (late King George V) and his elder brother, Prince Albert Victor, Duke of Clarence, but declined the position. The job instead went to his lifelong friend and fellow Cambridge student John Neale rpenter continued to visit Dalton while he was tutor, and was presented with photographs of themselves by the princes. In the following years he experienced an increasing sense of dissatisfaction with his life in the church and university, and became weary of what he saw as the hypocrisy of Victorian society. He found great solace in reading poetry, later remarking that his discovery of the work of Walt Whitman caused "a profound change" in him. (My Days and Dreams p. 64).

About this Item: Miniature Masterpieces, United States, 2018. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English. Brand new Book. The Short Stories Of Rabindranath Tagore, Volume 1. The short story is often viewed as an inferior relation to the Novel. But it is an art in itself. To take a story and distil its essence into fewer pages while keeping character and plot rounded and driven is not an easy task. Many try and many fail. In this series we look at short stories from many of our most accomplished writers. Miniature masterpieces with a lot to say. In this volume we examine some of the short stories of Rabindranath Tagore. And with him we venture to the East. To meet the poet and story teller who speaks a common language of love and mysticism which continues to convey valuable insights into universal themes in contemporary society. Rabindranath Tagore (1861-1941) who was a gifted Bengali Renaissance man, distinguishing himself as a philosopher, social and political reformer and a popular author in all literary genres. He was instrumental in an increased freedom for the press and influenced Gandhi and the founders of modern India. He composed hundreds of songs which are still sung today as they include the Indian and Bangladesh's national anthems. His prolific literary life has left a legacy of quality novels, essays and in this volume his shorter works. Gitanjali, one of his most famous works, earned him the distinction of being the first Asian writer to receive the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1913. Many of the poems are also available as an audiobook from our sister company Portable Poetry. Many samples are at our youtube channel http: /user/PortablePoetry?feature=mhee The full volume can be purchased from iTunes, Amazon and other digital stores.

About this Item: Rapid Press, India, 2014. Paperback. Condition: New. 2nd ed. Language: English. Brand new Book. This collection contains some of the best stories of Tagore who put India on the literary map of the world. Translated from Bengali to English, these stories depict the human condition in its many forms: innocence and childhood, love and loss, the city and the village, the natural and the supernatural. Prominent among the stories are the famous 'The Cabuliwallah', which has also been adapted as a movie. The book also gives an insight into the socio-economic conditions prevalent in Colonial Bengal. About the Author: Rabindranath Tagore (1861-1941) was the youngest son of Debendranath Tagore, a leader of the Brahmo Samaj. He was educated at home and although at seventeen he was sent to England for formal schooling, he did not finish his studies there. In his mature years, in addition to his many-sided literary activities, he managed the family estates, a project which brought him into close touch with common humanity and increased his interest in social reforms. He also started an experimental school at Shantiniketan where he tried his Upanishadic ideals of education. From time to time he participated in the Indian nationalist movement, though in his own non-sentimental and visionary way; and Gandhi, the political father of modern India, was his devoted friend. Tagore was knighted by the ruling British Government in 1915, but within a few years he resigned the honour as a protest against British policies in India. Tagore had early success as a writer in his native Bengal. With his translations of some of his poems he became rapidly known in the West. In fact, his fame attained a luminous height, taking him across continents on lecture tours and tours of friendship. For the world he became the voice of India's spiritual heritage; and for India, especially for Bengal, he became a great living institution. Although, Tagore wrote successfully in all literary genres, he was first of all a poet. Among his fifty and odd volumes of poetry are Manasi (1890) {The Ideal One}, Sonar Tari (1894) {The Golden Boat}, Gitanjali (1910) {Song Offerings}, Gitimalya (1914) {Wreath of Songs}, and Balaka (1916) {The Flight of Cranes}. The English renderings of his poetry, which include The Gardener (1913), Fruit-Gathering (1916), and The Fugitive (1921), do not generally correspond to particular volumes in the original Bengali; and in spite of its title, Gitanjali: Song Offerings (1912), the most acclaimed of them, contains poems from other works besides its namesake. Tagore's major plays are Raja (1910) {The King of the Dark Chamber}, Dakghar (1912) {The Post Office}, Achalayatan (1912) {The Immovable}, Muktadhara (1922) {The Waterfall}, and Raktakaravi (1926) {Red Oleanders}. He is the author of several volumes of short stories and a number of novels, among them Gora (1910), Ghare-Baire (1916) {The Home and the World}, and Yogayog (1929) {Crosscurrents}. Besides these, he wrote musical dramas, dance dramas, essays of all types, travel diaries, and two autobiographies, one in his middle years and the other shortly before his death in 1941. Tagore also left numerous drawings and paintings, and songs for which he wrote the music himself. Seller Inventory # AAV9789380914770
