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.

Ina, Germany
The books arrived today and I have to congratulate you on such a WONDERFUL packing job! I have never, ever, received such beautifully and carefully packed items from India in all my years of ordering. Each and every book arrived in perfect shape--thanks to the extreme care you all took in double-boxing them and using very strong boxes. (Oh how I wished that other businesses in India would learn to do the same! You won't believe what some items have looked like when they've arrived!) Again, thank you very much. And rest assured that I will soon order more books. And I will also let everyone that I know, at every opportunity, how great your business and service has been for me. Truly very appreciated, Namaste.
