An Idealist in India: Selected Speeches and Writings of Sister Nivedita

Amiya P. Sen (Author)

This book puts together representative speeches and writings of Sister Nivedita. Posterity has often judged Margaret Elizabeth Noble (1867-1911), better known as Sister Nivedita, and her guru, Swami Vivekananda (1863-1902), in sharply different ways. Opinion remains divided over whether or not the Swami was more a patriot than prophet, and Nivedita’s biographers have read her life and work in widely different ways, aided perhaps by the fact that she remained deeply committed to the memory of her Master and his ideas even as she was increasingly drawn to a life of active politics, which, paradoxically, had been forbidden by none other than the Master himself. Suitably annotated, this book covers a wide array of subjects, ranging from the education of Indian women, Hindu religion, and mythology to issues born of the burgeoning Indian nationalism of the times. A substantive introduction comments upon and contextualizes the selections included.
