The first Asian author awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature, Indian philosopher Rabindranath Tagore (1861-1941) wrote in a wide range of literary genres - poetry, drama, fiction and non-fiction.
This collection of four plays features Sacrifice, a philosophical work exploring conflict in ancient times "when human sacrifice is claimed by the Goddess of War."
All four works in this anthology - Sacrifice, Sanyasi the Ascetic, Malini, The King and the Queen - present examples of Tagore's apparently simplistic style of writing while also showing his deeply rooted insight into the universal human condition.
This hardcover book, published in 1963, is available in the Prospero's Bookshelf Collection at ProsperoLane.com.
