This is a reader’s book. It looks at Tagore through his texts. It reads his novels Gora and Jogajog in depth, and Char Adhyay as a crucible of our time. His plays Dakghar and Muktadhara are taken up briefly but succinctly. That he is above all a poet is amply illustrated, not by his poems alone but songs—a principal thrust in these pages. His love of Nanak along with other medieval Sants is part of his vision of India.
