Modernism and Tagore
Modernism and Tagore
Description
From the Back of the Book

Modernism and Tagoreis a major critical attempt that tries to evaluate Tagore's literary genius in the background of modernism which according to the author chiefly consists in a single-minded preoccupation with the body of poetry with the consequent belief in the self-sufficiency of language and in an oppressive and overwhelming consciousness of evil in the world. The author tries, following the great poet's own view of criticism, to understand the way in which the world expresses itself in the body of Tagore's poetic creation. He examines how the poet moves from romantic effusion and melancholy to the self-possessed tranquility of divine love and fro there towards Western humanism on the one hand and to a realization of the gracious aspect of the terrible on the other.

Thank you so much for shipping Ma Shitala.  She arrived safely today on Buddha Purnima.  We greeted Her with camphor and conch blowing, and she now is on Ma Kali’s altar.  She is very beautiful.  Thank you for packing Her so well. Jai Ma
