The bard wrote at the conclusion of his sixth letter, "Then the Sun-god having contained his thousand rays laid out his tired head on the bed of multitudinous clouds leaning on sunset's peak and closed his sleepy crimson eyes; the birds returned to their respective nests. The lowing herd headed for the cow-house tracing the cowboy's steps. We began our journey for London." ...more

Amal ismindeki küçük ve hasta bir çocuğun evlatlık verildiği bir ailedeki yaşamını sembolik bir şekilde tüm insanlığa çevrilerek anlatıldığı klasik hint dünyası örgüsüne sahip, normalde çocuk tiyatrosu hüviviyetinde ama çocuklardan daha çok büyüklerin hissesine payların düştüğü bir eser.

কবির সতের বছর বয়েসে লেখা ভরমণকাহিনী হিসেবে অনেক পরিপকব। ভাষা পরাঞজল, যথারীতি কাবযময় কিনতু কিছুকষেতরে অতি সংসকৃত বযবহারে জরাজীরণ। সথানীয় ইংরেজ এবং ইঙগবঙগদের আচরণ, বিলেত আর ভারতবরষীয় রীতিনীতি ইতযাদি বিষয়ে তার অনতরদৃষটি অনেকখানিক আধুনিক এবং নিরপেকষ।
সরাসরি নাম বযবহার না করে সাংকেতিক নাম বযবহার করায় মনে হয় রচনা যেন সবতঃসফূরত নয়, উদগীরিত।
সরবোপরি কবির একানত নিজসব ভাবনাকে টাইমলাইন ধরে বোঝার জনয চমৎকার বই।

Awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1913 "because of his profoundly sensitive, fresh and beautiful verse, by which, with consummate skill, he has made his poetic thought, expressed in his own English words, a part of the literature of the West."

Tagore modernised Bengali art by spurning rigid classical forms and resisting linguistic strictures. His novels, stories, songs, dance-dramas, and ess
