Description

This second volume in a three part serial includes nine plays and four stories translated by Tagore and also five prose works distinguished by profundity of thought and expression.

These works made a great impact on readers belonging to different countries and cultures. They are still fresh and challenging. For the first time Tagore's English writings are presented with scholarly annotations and information about the historical contexts to which they belong.

Rabindranath Tagore (1861-1941) became an international figure when his Gitanjali, an anthology of lyrics, originally written in Bengali and translated into English by the poet himself, was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature - - the first ever to an Asian - - in 1913. Since then he came to be known not only as a great writer but also as an able spokesman of modern India. Till today he is the most widely read Indian writer.

Although his reputation outside the Bengali-speaking area rests largely, if not entirely, on his English writings, no attempt had been made to put them together. Shanty Akademi has now brought out a complete collection of Tagore's writings in English - - original as well as translations done by him- - in three volumes.

The corpus of Tagore's English writings, large and diverse, forms a substantial part of his total work. The first volume of this 3-part series includes all the poetic works translated by Toga and the poems he wrote originally in English. The second volume consists of plays and stories translated by him, as well as five prose work. The third volume is a collection of different genres of his writings.
