THE HOME AND THE WORLD by Rabindranath Tagore

June 13, 2023 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

featuring Pamela Lothspeich, Associate Professor of South Asian Studies


The first non-European to win the Nobel Prize in Literature

Tagore’s vivid historical setting, realistically portrayed characters, and philosophical insights form a compelling drama of the clash between old and new, realism and idealism, and good and evil.Dover Publications

The Home and the World reveals Tagore’s inner struggle between his embrace of Western culture and his opposition to it.—

—Initially known in the West as a mystical poet, Tagore was among India’s most important social critics and thinkers; his depiction of the limits of women’s lives is especially acute.—Martha Nussbaum, New Statesman

A man of prodigious literary and artistic accomplishments, Tagore played a leading role in Indian cultural renaissance and came to be recognized, along with Mohandas Gandhi, as one of the architects of modern India.—Poetry Foundation

Tagore’s themes were as varied as his forms, including love, politics, humor, appreciation for the beauty of nature, and a profound sympathy for the perspectives of women, children, and the poor.—Everyman’s Library
