    Description

    Gora is perhaps Tagore’s most determined work which develops against the enormous, vibrant milieu of Bengal during the British rule. It is his fifth novel and is considered as one of his masterpieces.

    Summary of the Book

    Gora is about a separated society striving hard to visualize an emerging country. It is a classic tale of India's nationalist emerging, appealing the social, cultural, religious and political life of the nineteenth century urban middle-class in Bengal. The story is viewed through the eyes of a young man who is an orthodox Hindu, who expresses himself in contradiction of the British imperialist culture. He gradually finds himself approaching his pro-home rule individuality through the prism of systematized religion. Gora interrogates the doctrines and conjectures integral in nationalist thought, which not many books have dared to. The novel is perhaps an expression of Tagore’s own evolution from Hindu revivalism to a whole new thought of universal brotherhood, from nationalism to a world without borders and boundaries, from Hinduism to the religion of humanity, one mankind. Gora was translated into English by W.W. Pearson in the year 1924.
