  • The years between 1892 and 1900 comprised the most prolific phase of Rabindranath Tagore's literary career, during which he wrote several extraordinary dramatic poems. Included in this collection are Chitrangada, Viday Abhishap, Gandharir Avedan and Karan-Kunti Samvad¬¬, all based on the great Indian epic, the Mahabharata. They reflect Tagore's technical mastery, erudite vision and unique poetic style, exploring the depth of human character and the perennial questions that plague mankind, questions of beauty, love and human relationships. Translated from Bengali by Shailesh Parekh, these dramatic poems retain the melody, mood, meaning and essence of the original.

    Rabindranath Tagore

    One of India's most cherished figures, Rabindranath Tagore (1861-1914) was a novelist, short-story writer, poet, essayist, painter, educationist and thinker, the first non-European to be awarded the Nobel Prize for literature in 1913. He modernised Bengali literature, moving it away from its rigid classical form and strict linguistic structure. Known for works such as Gitanjali (Song Offerings), Gora (Fair-Faced) and Ghare-Baire (The Home and the World,) his novels, short stories and verse are considered part of the greatest of world literature, famous for their exploration of the political and the personal.
