Knockings at My Heart is a first ever collection of Rabindranath Tagore’s unpublished short poems – the autograph poems he started writing for the first time during his visit to China and Japan between 1916 and 1929.
A Nobel laureate , Tagore was often requested by his admirers to write these short poems while signing autographs . Influenced by the precision, depth, power and intensity of Japanese haiku poetry, Tagore’s short poems are a tour de force of his lyrical simplicity.
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.
