By: Rabindranath Tagore
Rabindranath Tagore reinvented the Bengali novel with Farewell Song, blurring the lines between prose and poetry and creating an effervescent blend of romance and satire. Through Amit and Labanya and a brilliantly etched social milieu, the novel addresses contemporary debates about good and bad writing, the nature of love and conjugality, and the influence of Western culture on Bengali society. Set against the idyllic www.penguinclassics.com backdrop of Shillong and the mannered world of elite Calcutta society, this sparkling novel expresses the complex vision and the mastery of style that characterized Tagores later works.
