Gitanjali Reborn: William Radice's Writings on Rabindranath Tagore (Paperback)
Not Yet Published
Radice, himself a recognized English poet and erudite scholar, delved into the deeper meaning of Tagore's poems and songs, and discussed his ideas on education and the environment with an insight probably no other Westerner has. He also translated Tagore's short stories and short poems, and finally was able to make a complete breakthrough by translating Gitanjali afresh and restoring Tagore's original English manuscript. Martin K mpchen lives in Santiniketan, West Bengal and Germany and is a reputed Tagore scholar and writer.
