  • Description
    This collection of Tagore's short stories, translated into English is the first title in a major and prestigious project undertaken by the Oxford University Press in collaboration with Visva-Bharati to publish new English translations of a wide range of Tagore's writings, including his poetry, non-fiction prose and fiction. The short stories included in this selection are representative not only of Tagore's range, but they also enable us to revise the conventional view of Tagore as a short story writer. Writing them at a time when the form was not yet popular, Tagore eschewed the romantic strain prevalent in his day. His stories are fables of modern man, where fairy tale meets hard ground, where myths are reworked, and the religion of man triumphs over the religion of rituals and convention, where the love of a woman infuses the universe with humanity. He writes with concern about such issues as the Hindu revivalism in the late nineteenth century and the bondage of women. The rhythms of daily life, his rural encounters and childhood reminiscences, unfold in his tales, as does a sense of history, the reality of the political situation and its impact on individual lives.Tagore wishes to see the world of humanity not only reflected in his own life but also actualized in Bengali literature. His profound sensibility led him beyond the merely regional, his humanity stretching across east and west, fulfilling the purpose of his Jibandebata, his life's deity, Edited by Sukanta Chaudhuri, a well-known scholar and translator, this is an authoritative and readable translation of Tagore's short stories. An essential Tagore for the collector, it is one that will find its place on every discerning reader's shelf.

    Awful service

    Have ordered several items from Flipkart earlier but never faced such awful service. I stopped using Flipkart a while back bcoz of slow delivery and usually noncompetitive prices but this time a book I was looking for was available here so i made tHE MISTAKE of ordering. I ordered 2 books from Flipkart on 6 Aug to the same address. One got delivered - albeit Flipkart normal delivery takes way longer time than an amazon or several others. The max. time for delivery for the other one (the book ...

    The most beautiful book I have ever read.

    Always wanted to read a Rabindranath Tagore book but never found a good translation untill this one. I love this book, its one of the few I will read over and over again.

    The stories transport you to another world and the translation in English is excellent.

    The introduction too is very informative.
