  • As a young man, Rabindranath Tagore wrote a series of letters to his niece during what he described as the most productive period of his life. By turns contemplative and playful, gentle and impassioned, Tagore's letters abound in incredible insights - from sharply comical portrayals of English sahibs to lively anecdotes about family life, from thoughts on the nature of poetry to spiritual contemplation and inner feeling and coursing through all these letters, like a ceaseless heartbeat, is Tagore's deep love for the natural splendor of Bengal. In this manner, this volume also serves as a prose companion to his magnificent work Gitanjali.                                                                                                               Letters from a Young Poet shimmers with wit and warmth and offers unforgettable vignettes of the young poet in those happy days before extraordinary fame found him.

    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.
