Rabindranath Tagore's Gitanjali is a sublime expression of the divine in nature.Tagore was one of the greatest poets of modern India. He drew upon a rich and varied tradition, ranging from Sanskrit writings to Western literature, and enriched Bengali culture with his compositions. He received the Nobel Prize for literature in 1913.
Tagore attempted to express in his poetry the divine spirit that he glimpsed in nature. W.B. Yeats noted that his poetry had "an innocence, a simplicity that one does not find elsewhere in nature." It touches the soul with its serenity and lyrical quality. Gitanjali is truly a treasured companion on life's long journey.
