This volume situates Rabindranath Tagore's iconic Gora in his times and ours, examining contexts that produced it and reasons that make it acutely relevant today. It revisits this foundational text from perspectives as varied and interdisciplinary as textual and genre studies; translation and reception studies; narratology, gender, race and caste studies. It also situates Gora within spacio-imaginative configurations such as nation, desh, rashtra, mulk, swadeshi samaj, swaraj, ramrajya, and as engaging with questions of hospitality, philoxenos and xenophobia. Significantly, it provides new readings with regard to the complex operations of religion and 'formations of the secular' in times of colonial modernity. Moreover, this volume is distinctive in providing a translation of Tagore's essay Atmaparichay and Buddhadev Bose's Bangla essay on Gora. Printed Pages. 244.
