Om Gitanjali - Song Offerings
This vintage volume comprises the English translation of Rabindranath Tagore's 'Gitanjali', a collection of one-hundred-and-three poems first published by the 'India Society of London' in 1912. This beautiful collection, translated by Tagore himself, is sure to be enjoyed by a wide range of poetry-lovers, and is a veritable must-read for anyone unfamiliar with the seminal work of Tagore. Rabindranath Tagore was a Bengali polymath who single-handedly reformed Bengali literature and music through 'Contextual Modernism' in the late-nineteenth and early-twentieth centuries. Many antiquarian books such as this are increasingly rare and expensive, and it is with this in mind that we are republishing this vintage book now in an affordable, modern edition complete with a new prefatory biography of the author.
