Book Summary of Gitanjali Song Offerings

Gitanjali or the ‘Song Offerings' in English translation (1911) is a volume of 103 poems selected by Tagore form his several Bengali books of poetry. It was when he learned from William Rothenstein of western interest in them that he translated them into English. Chiefly for this volume, Tagore became the first non-European to win the Noble Prize in Literature in 1913.

W. B. Yeats, in the introduction to Tagore's Gitanjali, Writes that his volume has "stirred my blood as nothing has for Years...." He explains, "These Lyrics.. display in their thought a world i have dreamed of all my life long."

Yeats tells us that Tagore's songs are not only respected and admired by the scholarly class, but also that they are sung in the fields by peasants.

Gitanjali is poetry of life-affirmation: life with its colour and abundance, melancholy and mystery. It is a record of the poet's intimate response to the splendour of the universe. His poetry in translation was viewed as spiritual, and this together with his mesmerizing persona gave him a prophet-like aura in the west but this "elegant prose and magical poetry" still remains largely unknown outside the confines of Bengal.

There lived a pair of eyes in whose serenity the dawn and dusk merged, in whose voice the wise found their nerves, in whose heart even hatred turned love and in whose thoughts, a nation found their own.Arguably one of the finest poets of all times, Rabindranath Tagore was an authorial voice in th...
