Description:
For the lovers of literature, Rabindranath Tagore remains a poignant read. Rereading Tagore is a revisit to the excerpts of Tagore’s work—poetry and prose, and pulls the immortal tunes from the memory. The real power of this essay is that it lives up to the title and makes us reach out and read the unabridged Tagore. This collection dissects some of his famous works such as Gora, The Post Office, and Jogajog among others. It contextualizes some of Tagore’s other works such as Muktadhara and Char Adhyay.

Rereading Tagore also provides us an insightful backdrop on what influenced Tagore’s famous works,for instance,The Post Office performed by Tagore himself in Jorasanko in 1917.Tagore had later seen a German production of the play at Berlin in 1921, but was not enthused by the interpretation.The play was performed again in 1939 in Shantiniketan with the addition of a new song.

Reviews:

‘The book makes it obvious how elaborately Dev has studied Tagore’s works. The former professor of Comparative Literature at Jadavpur University is clearly a Tagore fan-boy who, through this book, is trying to establish the subtleties that made Tagore a legend in the first place’. Free Press Journal

‘This book, despite the absence of a critical take on Tagore, will make you reach out to Tagore and his seemingly simple yet complex creations 150 years after his birth. The real fun of Tagore after all lies in reading and re-reading him, in every stage of life to discover newer sides to the legend’. The Print
