Gitanjali

Rabindranath Tagore

  • $ 1434


My songs have taken me From place to place In time and space. Described by Rabindranath Tagore as revelations of my true self, the poems and songs of Gitanjali established the writers literary talent worldwide. They include eloquent sonnets such as the famous Where the mind is without fear, intense explorations of love, faith and nature Light, oh where is the light? and tender evocations of childhood When my play was with thee. In this new translation to mark Tagores one-hundred-and-fiftieth birth anniversary, William Radice renders with beauty and precision the poetic rhythm and intensity of the Bengali originals. In his arrangement of Tagores original sequence of poems alongside his translations, Radice restores to Gitanjali the structure, style and conception that were hidden by W. B. Yeatss edition of 1912, making this book a magnificent addition to the Tagore library.
