About the Book

‘Studies in Rabindranath’s Prosody and Bengali Prose-Verse’ is a combination of two papers—‘Studies in Rabindranath’s Prosody’ and ‘Rhythm of Bengali Prose and Prose- Verse’, first published in the Journal of the Department of Letters of the University of Calcutta in 1938 and 1939. There two papers are a follow-up of his Premchand Raichand Studentship thesis ‘Principles of Bengali Prosody’. The latter was published in Bengali in book-from-a pioneering scientific study of Bengali Prosody. Now it runs to ninth edition and published by the University of Calcutta. We hope this combination of the aforesaid papers will be great help to the admirers of Tagore and those who study Rabindranath’s prosody and prose-verse.

Book II

 

Preface

An attempt has been made in the following pages to study the character and constitution of rhythmed prose and prose-verse in Bengali. Incidentally some of the fundamental questions on the nature of prose and verse have been touched or discussed. The discussions have generally proceeded on a basis of comparison between analogous forms in English and in Bengali. The views given here are put forward with a certain degree of diffidence as the author had not the advantage of comparing his views with those of any previous writers on the same subjects. So far as he is aware, he is the only writer to have studied them up till now. His labours will, however, be amply rewarded if they lead to further investigations in the same field. The author’s views on prose rhythm are to some extent based upon an article of his, published in the Bengali quarterly PARICHAY in Magh 1339 B. S.

Testimonials
Kailash Raj’s art, as always, is marvelous. We are so grateful to you for allowing your team to do these special canvases for us. Rarely do we see this caliber of art in modern times. Kailash Ji has taken the Swaminaryan monks’ suggestions to heart and executed each one with accuracy and a spiritual touch.
