Review

A masterpiece of Tagore, a great spirit of India. Through the conflict between orthodox Hinduism and Brahmo Samaj, this books shows us what the true faith is, and what the true religion is. About translation. Since I can't read Indian language, I don't know how well this translation preserves the beauty of the original. But one is clear, that this translation is readable. One thing that this books lacks: this book provides no annotations at all. Expressions like "param brahmani jojitachittah" appear. The author may have preserved the original text so that its delicate meaning would not be distorted, but this makes some sentences not understandable.. --By Baek Sosung on February 13, 2014

Although the title is very old, the values it teaches are still applicable today. Translation has preserved the Indian cultural background. Excellent story which shows how social barriers can be overcome by maturity, love and tolerance. --By Amazon Customer on September 26, 2012

I had heard of Tagore over the years but had no real idea what a great human being he was. The Indian references were difficult for me but I really got the idea that he understands the human condition, the politics, freedom, hope, love, family and the rest of it. I wish we had one of these people around today. --By Benedict on October 6, 2014

Product Description

Vast in its scope and rich in thought Gora has been acclaimed as a monumental work in the history of Bengali fiction. The story reflects the social, political and religious scene in Bengal at the turn of the century. The forces that were operating in Bengal at that time were one of the intense nationalism and revival of ancient spiritual values and also that of liberal western thought. What makes Gora a great prose epic is not only its social content but also its brilliant story of self-searching, of resolution, of conflicts and of self discovery.
