Temporarily out of stock. I am a lifelong devotee of Rabindranath Tagore (RNT), of whom I tell my children, "Human evolution reached its perfection when it created Tagore- the greatest human being ever to have lived on this earth. I stand behind this assertion. With my Bengali background, indeed, I am fortunate to have been naturally exposed to the priceless life and works of Tagore.

Tagore was renowned throughout much of Europe, North America, and East Asia. Over 500 books were kept in the library and all the rooms have been decorated with rare pictures of Rabindranath. He co-founded Dartington Hall School, a progressive coeducational institution; in Japan, he influenced such figures as Nobel laureate Yasunari Kawabata.

Rabindranath Tagore was born on May 7, 1861 in Calcutta, India. In 1915, he was knighted by King George V, but Tagore renounced his knighthood in 1919 following the Amritsar massacre of 400 Indian demonstrators by British troops. He attended University College, at London for one year before being called back to India by his father in 1880. During the first 51 years of his life, he achieved some success in the Calcutta area of India with his many stories, songs, and plays. He primarily worked in Bengali, but after his success with Gitanjali, he translated many of his other works into English.

Most of the poems in The Crescent Moon focus on the love in a mother-child relationship and its development over the years as the child grows up, with a lot of nature imagery sprinkled in the verses. There are a lot of beautiful visual references to his homeland, India. Summary by Anusha Iyer.

I am glad I downloaded these beautiful poems in this book.

Tagore the great indian poet.

This is one of the more exquisite texts of Nobel winner Tagore. The reader shoud be aware, though, that this one is an abridged edition where some of the allegedly more beautiful chapters are missing.

I have read several of Tagore's works but nothing has ever touched me as deeply as the lines in these poems about children and their loves. The one on the death of a child is my favorite. I lost my own child with leukemia several years ago and thought the tears had all dried up but these touching words of this great poetic master found some still tender areas. If these poems are so very beautiful in their English translations, I can only guess what they must sound like in the original rhythmic and lyrical Bengali language. Thank you for allowing me to review and recommend this book

I am a lifelong devotee of Rabindranath Tagore (RNT), of whom I tell my children, "Human evolution reached its perfection when it created Tagore- the greatest human being ever to have lived on this earth." I stand behind this assertion.

With my Bengali background, indeed, I am fortunate to have been naturally exposed to the priceless life and works of Tagore. As Abby from LA writes- it is absolutely true that Tagore's Bengali creations surpass by far what is carried over to English. Sitting by Tagore's feet, I frequently regret that the entire world does not have access to the poems, songs, essays, drama and all other literary creations he left behind in Bengali.

The issue I have with this edition of The Crescent Moon (which RNT dedicated to Sturge Moore, Britain's poet-laureate nominee in RNT's time) is that on the cover, the name of Deepak Chopra, who has compiled this collection, is displayed more prominently than that of RNT himself. Sadly, this smacks of self-promotion, a common phenomenon in this age of crass commercialism and materialism, something RNT (similar to Thoreau in this country) spoke out stridently against throughout his life. Thus I justify the 4 stars.

As the correspondent from Mexico correctly observes, any seeker expecting to discover Tagore in the original, needs to find earlier, more pristine editions of the book (and others by RNT). I assume that Abby's Mom must have seen/felt and read Tagore from the original, and not from an edited product.

So respected has Bengali poet Rabindranath Tagore's writings and philosophy been that he was the first Easterner to win the Nobel Prize. Though "Gitanjali" and "The Gardener" rank among his most famous works, this little gem is not to be overlooked. Tagore shows a sympathetic understanding of children's feelings and fantasy akin to Robert Louis Stevenson ("A Child's Garden of Verse"), Janusz Korczak ("King Matt" and "When I Am Little Again"), and Federico Garcia Lorca ("The Cricket Sings") in such poems as "The Home" and "Cresent Moon." Tagore's voice is one of patience, empathy, and tenderness.
