A Taste of Tagore brings together a selection of the magical poetry, elegant prose, prayers and contemplations of Rabindranath Tagore, India's first Nobel Laureate. Tagore believed in the essential oneness of humanity, and worked to bring about cohesion and harmony between religions, cultures and countries. In his own lifestyle he embraced simplicity and moderation in consumption. This new selection of his writings shows the diversity, depth and spirituality of this remarkable man. The publishing of this book coincides with UNESCO's declaration of 2011 as the Year of Tagore to celebrate the 150th anniversary of his birth in Bengal.
Rabindranath Tagore (1861-1941) was a Bengali poet, novelist, musician, painter and playwright. His lyrical poetry and novels have gained him worldwide acclaim, and he was the first Asian to receive the Nobel Prize for Literature, primarily for his work 'Gitanjali'. He wrote over one thousand poems; eight volumes of short stories; almost two dozen plays; eight novels; and many books and essays on philosophy, religion, education and social topics. His other great love was music, and he composed more than two thousand songs, both the music and lyrics.
