Seventy years after his death, Tagore's genius still provides ample scope for critical analyses of his writings, especially in the English language and outside the subcontinent. A collection of thirteen essays, The Poet and His World: Critical Essays on Rabindranath Tagore enhances critical literature on Tagore. Looking at different aspects of Tagore's life and philosophy, the chapters in this volume are sequenced from the more general to the specific. They analyse the poet’s life and relationships, his moral, educational, political and dramaturgical philosophy, and finally provide textual analysis of select individual works like the novels Gora and The Home and the World, and a short story, “The Laboratory”. Eminent scholars like Sukanta Chaudhuri, Martin Kämpchen, William Radice, Bharati Ray, Kathleen M. O‘Connell, Uma Das Gupta, to name a few, have contributed to this volume. Brought out on the 150th birth anniversary of the poet, this book will be an unputdownable read for students and scholars of literature and culture studies.
