Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Gitanjali: Offerings of Song and Art (Hardcover)
I can only second the previous reviewer's comments about the beauty of the book itself. The art is a joy to contemplate and fully complements the presentation of the writing.
Much as I adore Rabindranath Tagore I feel that he didn't do justice to his own poetry in his translation from the Bengali. For a more literal, just as poetic, and complete rendering of "Gitanjali" I highly recommend James Talarovic's SHOW YOURSELF TO MY SOUL Show Yourself To My Soul.
Even so, GITANJALI: OFFERINGS OF SONG AND ART is a deeply spiritual, exquisite book, made all the more so by the miniatures by artist Mark W. McGinnis. I will be buying additional copies of this book in the belief that they will find their way into the hands of those who will cherish the book as I do.
