RABINDRANATH
TAGORE



Rabindranath Tagore at 53, portrait

Tagore signature

Portrait of Rabindranath Tagore, age 53, recipient of the Nobel prize for literature in 1913 and perhaps India's most renowned poet.

"In all his poems there is one single theme: the love of God. When I tried to find anything western which might compare with the works of Tagore, I thought of ‘The Imitation of Christ,’ by Thomas a Kempis. It is like, yet between the work of the two men there is a world of difference. Thomas a Kempis was obsessed by the thought of sin; he wrote in terrible imagery. Mr. Tagore has as little thought of sin as a child playing with a top. His poems have stirred my blood as nothing has for years."
William Butler Yeats

These photographed excerpts are from Basanta Koomar Roy's 1916 biography of Tagore entitled Rabindranath Tagore, The Man and His Poetry.
