Abstract

Rabindranath Tagore is a perennial fountain of immaculate imagination which is the soul of poetry. His poetry has element of truth and reckoning force to affect men, mind, social surroundings, etiquette of the citizen of the country and humanistic approach towards life—live and let live. Unequivocally, we would say his poetry is high order of excellence. Had Watson, Wilson, Eliot, Saintsbury, Tillotson, Allott, Arnold, F. R. Levis, Richard alive they would have glorified versification, imagination, diction, melody, substance, style, regularity, uniformity, balance, and precision of Rabindranath Tagore. Romanticism of Wordsworth, Shelley, Keats, Byron, witticism of Donne, Crashaw, Vaughan classicism of Dante, and Homer, criticism of Arnold, satire of Dryden beautiful and smooth verse flow of Chaucer all are quite apparent in the Nobel Laureate Rabindranath Tagore. Who says significance of poetry is no more and future of poetry is buried. As long as pain and pleasure, sorrow, suffering and merry-making, cruelty and enmity, humanity and fraternity, honesty and humility, demon and Solomon, hypocrite and pious, battle and consequences are alive in the universe, mines of verses are treasure-trove for the vibrancy and survival of human beings. It has brightness of the sun, twinkling of stars, fragrance of flowers, height of mountains, depth of the seas, and palpitation of the human hearts definitely melodious voice of nightingale, innocence of lamb, and strength of tiger, who can forget it as a finer spirit of all knowledge.
