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.

Your website store is a really great place to find the most wonderful books and artifacts from beautiful India. I have been traveling to India over the last 4 years and spend 3 months there each time staying with two Bengali families that I have adopted and they have taken me in with love and generosity. I love India. Thanks for doing the business that you do. I am an artist and, well, I got through I think the first 6 pages of the book store on your site and ordered almost 500 dollars in books...
