Selected poems by Rabindranath Tagore( Book )

33 editions published between 1985 and 2005 in English and Undetermined and held by 668 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The poems of Rabindranath Tagore are among the most haunting and tender in Indian and world literature, expressing a profound and passionate human yearning.

Particles, jottings, sparks : the collected brief poems by Rabindranath Tagore( Book )

5 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 67 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Witty, lucid, and profound, Rabindranath Tagore's (1861-1941) brief poems have not enjoyed the prominence they deserve. Originally published in three separate volumes, they are central to his poetry and personality and span his entire career. The voice of the Bengali poet is always spontaneous, friendly, and accessible in these poems. In this collection William Radice, the leading English-translator of Tagore and himself a poet, brings these pieces together for the first time. He also provides an in-depth introduction and three prose writings by Tagore, translated into English for the first time, relating to poetry and the writing of the brief poems. --Dufour Editions

The recognition of Shakúntala by Kālidāsa( Book )

3 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 31 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The play Shakuntala was one of the first examples of Indian literature to be read in translation in Europe. Shakuntala's story is a leitmotiv that recurs in many works of Indian literature and culminates in the master Kali-dasa's drama for the stage." "The virtuous heroine is forgotten by her betrothed, the king Dushyanta, only to be refound thanks to a distinguishing signet ring discovered by a fisherman in the belly of one of his catch. The final act distills the essence of human forgiveness, in Shakuntala's gracious release of her husband from his guilt."--Jacket
