The Oxford India Illustrated Children's Tagore

Edition : Paperback
Volumes : 1

In this collection, comical, whimsical, and at times serious tales of everyday life and childhood fantasy engage and entice young readers and Tagore fans alike. Delightful nonsense poetry, translated from the original Bengali, short stories and nostalgic childhood recollections evoke a magical world.

The sheer wit and brilliance of Tagore s prose creates stories within stories, as is found in That Man , which encloses tales of fabulous characters stepping in and out of two separate worlds. Doodles, sketches and paintings by Tagore and his talented colleagues at Shantiniketan complement the text and create an atmosphere of their own.

A treasure trove of funny, colourful writing and evocative illustrations, The Oxford India Illustrated Children s Tagore is designed to appeal to those who know and love Tagore s writings as well as to introduce him to young readers who will enjoy the writing and delight in the illustrations.
