Book Summary of A POET'S DEATH: Late Poems of Rabindranath Tagore

The poems presented in this volume are from the last four years of his life. They were written after two spells of serious illness. The shadow of approaching death is prominent, although one should not be misled into thinking that death is the only topic of his late creation. The poems are chosen to give the volume a thematic unity. The volumes from which the collection is selected are: Prantik (1938), Rog-Sajyay (1940), Arogya (1940), Janmadine (1941) and Sesh Lekha (1941).

The translator, Dr Dipak Mazumdar is an academic economist who has had long careers in teaching at the London School of Economics and in research at the World Bank. He currently is researching at the University of Toronto.

One of India's most cherished renaissance figures, Rabindranath Tagore (1861-1941) put India on the literary map of the world when his Gitanjali was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1913. Myriad-minded, he was a poet, short story writer, novelist, dramatist, essayist, painter and composer of songs. His worldwide acclaim as a social, political, religious and aesthetic thinker, innovator in education and a champion of the 'One World' idea makes him a living presence

Rei April 03, 2011 review from Goodreads

The only thing I had read from Tagore before this was his novel "Gora". I have to say I am not fond of his prose, but I am in love with his poetry. Not since Basho have I been so touched by poetry, so immersed in the beauty of his words. The fact that these are poems taken from his death bed make...

India June 12, 2008 review from Goodreads

In my opinion Tagore is an important historical figure whose contribution to India's fate nearly equals that of Gandhi's. This is, in part, due to his writings, which include poetry. However, taken out of their historic context, the poems don't fare as well as one would wish. Today they seems alm...
