Description

Rabindranath Tagore Selected Essay is a collection of the author’s acclaimed essays. In Creative Unity (1922) we have some of the finest and wisest of Tagore’s collected essays in English. Essays like The Poet’s Religion and The Creative Ideal reveal some of his fundamental tenets of art and aesthetics, of life and religion, and of the religion of the poet. The essays in Sadhana (1913) tell us of the ancient spirit of India, as revealed in our sacred texts and manifested in the life of today. Man consists of a lecture delivered in 1933 at Andhra University.

It speaks about the Supreme Man, who is an immediate object of the most intimate awareness and challenges man to strike after perfection. Personality (1917) is a more structured exposition of Tagore’s spiritual thoughts. In Nationalism in India (1917) he criticize the nation-state in both East and West and offers his vision of a society independent of it. Crisis in Civilisation (Sabhyatar Samkat) was the last public address delivered by Tagore on 14 April 1941. The essays incorporated from The religion of Man (1941) are an extensive and commanding exposition of Tagore’s understanding of the meaning and significance of religion in the cultural history of man. Greater India (1921) deals with the Swadeshi Movement in Bengal, one of the turbulent periods in Indian history.
