POEM: At The Last Watch by Rabindranath Tagore

March 10, 2015

Jason McCrossan

Rabindranath Tagore was a Bengali polymath who reshaped Bengali literature and music, as well as Indian art with Contextual Modernism in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Author of Gitanjali and its "profoundly sensitive, fresh and beautiful verse",[3] he became the first non-European to win the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1913.[4] In translation his poetry was viewed as spiritual and mercurial; however, his "elegant prose and magical poetry" remain largely unknown outside Bengal. Every Saturday morning on 106.9 SFM's Saturday Breakfast with Jason McCrossan - Gill Fraser Lee reads poems in Tranquil Time - poetry on the radio today. Today she reads Rabindranath's poem "At The Last Watch".
