Tagore and China PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Tagore and China free pdf Tagore and China is the first full account in English of Rabindranath Tagore's visit to China and its civilizational import. Perhaps for the first time, exhaustive material related to the visit has been collected. The book charts Tagore's 'grand visit' in 1924 undertaken in response to China's 'Tagore fever' and the series of talks he gave there, their antecedents as well as impact. Also discussed is the foundation of Cheena-Bhavana at Visva-Bharati-and thereby of Chinese studies in India-and Tan Yun-shan's lifelong dedication to it and the Sino-Indian love it held. This well-researched book unearths new material from Chinese sources to confirm the devotion of Tagore's interpreter, poet Xu Zhimo, to him and Tagore's affection for Xu Zhimo. Tagore's two personal visits to Xu Zhimo, preceded by the latter's visit to Santiniketan, have also been detailed. Supplemented by several rare photographs, Tagore and China is a fitting tribute to Tagore's 150th birth anniversary and is going to be of abiding value to Sino-Indian understanding.
