These prose translations from Tagore have stirred my blood as nothing has for years,' wrote WB Yeats in 1912. A year later, Tagore was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature; and his works were translated into dozens of languages. This new anthology edited by Tagore's biographers is an authoritative selection which provides a fine introduction to his work, new translations from Bengali and a perfect balance between the diverse genres in which he worked. Collected here are a play, short stories, extracts from a novel, poems, songs, epigrams and paintings, as well as memoirs, letters, essays and conversations. From his celebrated play, The Post Office to his fantastic paintings and drawings, this is the first anthology to show clearly the literary sophistication, emotional power and intellectual range of Tagore's whole achievement. 'Krishna Dutta and Andrew Robinson bring the whole of Tagore into sharper focus. But they also offer a deep insight into the making of modern India. The essays, letters, conversations and poems of Tagore retrace a journey made by a builder of modern consciousness in India' - New Statesman
