Kindle (US version), Kindle, ePub (US version), ePub

Affectionately known as the Bard of Bengal, Rabindranath Tagore was also a celebrated novelist, short-story writer, essayist and playwright, who introduced new prose and verse forms into Bengali literature, freeing it from traditional models based on classical Sanskrit. Highly influential in introducing Indian culture to the West, Tagore is generally regarded as the outstanding creative artist of early twentieth century India, becoming the first non-European to receive the Nobel Prize for Literature. The Delphi Poets Series offers readers the works of literature’s finest poets, with superior formatting. This volume presents Tagore’s collected works, with related illustrations and the usual Delphi bonus material. (Version 1)
