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.
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.
