Gora (1910) is Tagore's fifth novel and is generally considered his masterpiece. With its epic dimensions and the broad canvas of the social, cultural, religious and political life of the nineteenth century urban middle class Bengal, it was a landmark in the history of the Bengali novel. The novel is believed to be an expression of Tagore’s own transition from Hindu revivalism to universal brotherhood, from nationalism to internationalism, from acceptance of rigid Brahmoism and Hinduism to the religion of man. It was translated into English by W.W. Pearson in 1924.
One of India’s most cherished renaissance figures, Rabindranath Tagore (1861-1941) put us on the literacy map of the world when his Gitanjali was awarded the Nobel Prize for literature in 1913. A poet’s poet, he is a maker of not only modern Indian Literature but also the modern Indian mind. Myriad-minded, he was a poet, short story winner, novelist, dramatist, essayist, painter and composer of songs. Gandhi called him the ‘Great Sentinel’. His World-wide acclaim as a social, political, religious and aesthetic thinker, innovator in education and a champion of the ‘One World’ idea makes him a living presence.
