Knockings at My Heart

Rating
Knockings At My Heart is the first ever collection of Rabindranath Tagore's unpublished short poems - the autograph poems he started writing for the first time during his visit to China and Japan between 1916 and 1929. A Nobel laureate, Tagore was often requested by his admirers to write short poems while signing autographs. Influenced by the precision, depth, power and intensity of Japanese haiku poetry, Tagore's short poems are a tour de force, demonstrating his lyrical simplicity.
