Read full description of the books:
Poet, novelist, painter and musician, Rabindranath Tagore (1861-1941) is the grand master of Bengali culture, and in the 1890s he concentrated on creating a new form, the short story. Many of his best stories were written during a period of relative isolation spent managing his family's estates in the riverlands of Bengal and they have been acclaimed as vivid portraits of Bengali life and landscapes, brilliantly polemical 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.
This edition, which has been extensively revised, includes a full introduction, selected letters and a glossary, and forms a companion volume to Tagore's Selected Poems, also edited and translated by William Radice.

Read information about the authorAwarded the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1913 "because of his profoundly sensitive, fresh and beautiful verse, by which, with consummate skill, he has made his poetic thought, expressed in his own English words, a part of the literature of the West."
Tagore modernised Bengali art by spurning rigid classical forms and resisting linguistic strictures. His novels, stories, songs, dance-dramas, and essays spoke to topics political and personal. Gitanjali (Song Offerings), Gora (Fair-Faced), and Ghare-Baire (The Home and the World) are his best-known works, and his verse, short stories, and novels were acclaimed—or panned—for their lyricism, colloquialism, naturalism, and unnatural contemplation. His compositions were chosen by two nations as national anthems: India's Jana Gana Mana and Bangladesh's Amar Shonar Bangla.
