Rabindranath Tagore (Bengali: রবীন্দ্রনাথ ঠাকুর) sobriquet Gurudev, was a Bengali polymath who reshaped his region's literature and music. Author of Gitanjali and its "profoundly sensitive, fresh and beautiful verse", he became the first non-European to win the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1913. In translation his poetry was viewed as spiritual and mercurial; his seemingly mesmeric personality, flowing hair, and other-worldly dress earned him a prophet-like reputation in the West. His "elegant prose and magical poetry" remain largely unknown outside Bengal. Tagore introduced new prose and verse forms and the use of colloquial language into Bengali literature, thereby freeing it from ... more »

    Westerners reading Tagore's poems here in English translation will not fully understand his true poetic genius. His poems in original Bengali are a musical and aesthetic delight. Tagore was not only a poet, but also a painter and singer. He used to sing his poems in his melodious voice. His words emanate from the very depth of human heart and speak universal truth. Here is a poet of utter compassion, in whose compositions you will never find a tinge of narrowness or bigotry. Like the legendary Soma and Homa birds of the Vedas, his consciousness remained always aloft.
