  • Book Details

A fresh and idiomatic translation of the Nobel Laureate's enchanting memoir of his childhood, this volume forms an ideal introduction to the work of Rabindranath Tagore, one of India's most acclaimed poets and thinkers.

Rabindranath Tagore is famous for the school and university he founded in the Bengal countryside, but he spent much of his early childhood in Calcutta. Seen through the amused eyes of a precocious young boy, Tagore's memoir describes the joint family he grew up in, the city he played in, and the school he was sent to - much against his will. Boyhood Days is an exquisite portrait of both Tagore's childhood, and his country, India, at a turning point in its history.
