Description

With Lipika, written in 1921 but never before published in English, Tagore introduced a new genre into Bengali literature-That of the unrhymed prose poem – and set a fashion which many young writers were to follow.

In a series of short sketches, based on themes from myths, fairy tales and incidents from the everyday world, he distilled his wisdom about human nature, about love, death and the pursuit of life’s goals, making his point with delicacy, subtle humour and the assured touch that springs from deep understanding.
