About the Book

Glimpses of Bengal is a selection from the letters of Tagore written in Bengali during the years 1885–95. This is an intimate record of a sensitive young man’s response to man and nature around him. In the letters, one can trace the genesis of many of his short stories and poems and find delightful descriptions of rural Bengal. They breathe a spirit of abundance and uninhibited freedom ‘under the shelter of obscurity’ as Tagore puts it, which he enjoyed.
