Rabindranath Tagore

Bengali poet and philosopher


Why is this person notable and influential?

Rabindranath Tagore , also known by his pen name Bhanu Singha Thakur , and also known by his sobriquets Gurudev, Kabiguru, and Biswakabi, was a Bengali poet, writer, music composer, and painter from the Indian subcontinent. He reshaped Bengali literature and music, as well as Indian art with Contextual Modernism in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Author of the “profoundly sensitive, fresh and beautiful verse” of Gitanjali, he became in 1913 the first non-European to win the Nobel Prize in Literature. Tagore’s poetic songs were viewed as spiritual and mercurial; however, his “elegant prose and magical poetry” remain largely unknown outside Bengal. He is sometimes referred to as “the Bard of Bengal”.
