Selected writings on literature and language

Rabindranath Tagore ; general editor, Sukanta Chaudhuri ; advisory editor, Sankha Ghosh ; introduction by Sisir Kumar Das ; notes by Sisir Kumar Das and Sukanta Chaudhuri

While Rabindranath Tagore needs no introduction, his place as a critic has been partially eclipsed by his fame as a creative writer. One of the founders of modern Bengali critical thought and among the most perceptive analysts in the language, his corpus of critical writings spanning almost his entire literary career, comprises more than one hundred pieces of varying length. This volume is part of 'The Oxford Tagore Translations' series, a prestigious project undertaken by Oxford University Press in collaboration with Visva-Bharati to publish English translations of a wide range of Tagore's writings including his poetry, non-fiction prose, and fiction. The volume includes essays which reveal Tagore's engagement with the central issues of criticism, as well as with literary theory and aesthetics. Bringing together an authoritative selection of Tagore's critical writings, most of which have not been translated before, this book also includes a detailed introduction and extensive notes.
