Gitanjali or the 'Song offerings' in English translation is a volume of 103 poems selected by Tagore from his several Bengali books of poetry. It was largely the 'Gitanjali' poems the book the Western World by storm and brought him worldwide recognition. Introducing this slim volume W.B. Yeats wrote: "… (the poems) have stirred my blood as nothing for years…".

It is poetry of God as an experience and God for Tagore is almost a genius of the place, the soul of the seasons the cycle of existence. It is also poetry of life-affirmation: life with its color and abundance, melancholy and mystery, despondency and joy of fulfillment. The poems are a record of the poet's intimate response to the beauty and splendor of the universe.
