Farewell Song free pdf A landmark in Bengali literature, Farewell Song has been described as Nobel laureate Rabindranath Tagore's masterpiece. Amit Ray, an Oxford-educated intellectual who aims to overthrow the old order of Indian literature, is on holiday in the Shillong hills when his car hits that of Labanya, a scholarly local governess. Unharmed, he immediately succumbs to her charms, and they embark on an erudite and passionate love affair, but their hilly idyll is threatened by ghosts from Amit's more sophisticated past. This celebrated work is Tagore's triumphant response to those who criticised his supremacy in Bengali literature. Interweaving original verse and beautiful yet playful prose, he writes of earthly love and, in doing so, creates timeless literature.
