Description

This anthology, edited and translated from Tagore's original writings in Bengali by Amitabha Chaudhury, comprises a selection of some of Tagore's essays on art, literature, religion and human nature. Going beyond the usual contours of aesthetics — meaning and contexts of art — this book imbued with Tagore's unique philosophy on aesthetics — is a celebration of life itself.

After all Tagore was not a formal philosopher and categorically abhorred academicism — and he was not interested in building a coherent theory of literature or art. This anthology is in a way essence of his views on aesthetics and is a must-read for all those who wish to understand the life and mind of Rabindranath Tagore and his artistic legacy, better.
