Mystic Tagore - Transcreations from Tagore’s Poetry

  • ₹ 309.00

The book explores the interweave of Rabindranath Tagore's poetic ethos and mystic vision through one hundred and twenty-three poems strewn across Tagore's Gitanjali (Songs Offerings), Geetabitaan, and other works. The central motif that runs like a thread through the transcreated poems is the great sage poet's quest for man's spiritual redemption from the abrasive materialism and monadic culture that grips humanity unshakeably ever since WWII. These transcreations assorted in the book recapture the essence of Tagorean nuances of melody typical of his poetry in as much as they blend into a profound philosophy on the existential enigma of man's life and sufferings vis-a-vis the universe, which is answerless to all the elemental questions confronting man and rankling at the back of his inquisitive mind. In transcreating Tagore, Jay Basu permeates his personality and life-vision into the transcreated artefacts to the point of an uncanny finesse that readers must presumably appreciate.
