The Post Office
About the book
Originally written in Bengali in 1912, The Post Office, rich in symbolism and allegory, is a play about man's passionate cry for the faraway, for the call of the awakening in the world of spiritual freedom. Mahatma Gandhi was enraptured to witness the play in 1917 and W.B.Yeats thought it a masterpiece.
One of India's most cherished renaissance figures, Rabindranath Tagore (1861-1941) put India on the literary map of the world when his Gitanjali was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1913. Myriad-minded, he was a poet, short story writer, novelist, dramatist, essayist, painter and composer of songs. His worldwide 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.
