Glimpses of Bengal / Selected from the Letters of Sir Rabindranath Tagore

Rabindranath Tagore (1861–1941) who was a gifted Bengali Renaissance man, distinguishing himself as a philosopher, social and political reformer and a popular author in all literary genres. He was instrumental in an increased freedom for the press and influenced Gandhi and the founders of modern India. He composed hundreds of songs which are still sung today as they include the Indian and Bangladesh’s national anthems. His prolific literary life has left a legacy of quality novels, essays and in this volume his shorter works. Gitanjali, one of his most famous works, earned him the distinction of being the first Asian writer to receive the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1913. At the end of the poems you will find a longer biography of Tagore, specially written for this volume. Many of Tagore’s other works are also available as audiobooks or e-books from our sister company Portable Poetry.
