Editorial Reviews

Review

Praise for the hardcover:

*One has waited a very long time for a biography of Tagore that did justice to a far more complex and curious mind and life than simply respectful and circumspect accounts allowed. Here it is: thorough, fair, balanced, intelligent, and addressing every aspect of a truly astonishing artist, his life and times.* -- Anita Desai

*This seems to exemplify a sort of biography little dared anymore; an enquiry into the spirit and mind of a man whom the authors trust and admire and do not presume to overinterpret.* --Independent on Sunday

*Enjoyable, astute and highly readable.* --Amit Chaudhuri, Spectator

*Judicious, sympathetic and exceedingly well documented.* --The Times

*A painstaking, informative, well-written biography.* --Daily Telegraph

*Excellent… admirably straightforward, readable, lively, informative.* --Financial Times

*Dutta and Robinson’s lively narrative steers clear of facile categories...so revealing the subtle nuances of East and West in the poet’s sensibility.* --Guardian

*The entire book was a revelation to me… it brings out very clearly that Tagore was intellectually more perceptive than Gandhi.* --Subrahmanyan Chandrasekhar, Nobel Laureate

*A fascinating book about a fascinating man, a work that addresses the profound conflict between eastern spirituality and western rationality.* --Ilya Prigogine, Nobel Laureate

*An excellent book… as an elegantly argued and subtly shaded portrait it will be difficult to supersede.* --Literary Review

‘This book offers a very detailed and perceptive portrayal of a man and his times and, since it is co-written by an Englishman and an Indian, it provides an understanding and appreciation from both perspectives.’ - John Green, MORNING STAR, 9 March 2009

‘An ambitious and altogether brilliant biography… exceptionally fair-minded.’ -- Sunday (Calcutta)

‘Krishna Dutta and Andrew Robinson have established themselves as the pre-eminent Tagore scholars.’ -- K. Natwar Singh, Asian Age

Book Description

The acclaimed bio of the great Indian poet and first Asian Pulitzer Prize winner.
