Rabindranath Tagore: One Hundred Years of Global Reception

Martin Kampchen (Editor) Imre Bangha (Editor) Uma Das Gupta (Translator)

The book examines how Rabindranath Tagore has been received globally from 1913, when he received the Nobel Prize for Literature for his English translation of Gitanjali, to this time. The essays arranged region-wise and continent wise deal with the translation of his writings, the impact of the poet’s visits to different countries and his subsequent standing in the world of letters. They show that his reception underwent dramatic metamorphoses and different political and social contexts and cultural movements responded to him differently. Quoting from the writings of his critics and other thinkers who examined Tagore’s works and with respect to many works of Tagore, they explore aspects like appreciation of ideas of Tagore in practical fields like educational philosophy, the role of personality of Tagore in disseminating his ideas, and response to his philosophy and notions such as his anti-war and anti-nationalist sentiments.
