The Heart of a Rebel Poet (Letters of Michael Madhusudan Dutt)
The Heart of a Rebel Poet (Letters of Michael Madhusudan Dutt)
Description
About the Book:

Michael Madhusudan Dutt's exclusive role in carrying forward Bengali literature-especially poetry and drama - into the modern era, remains uncontested. He continues to be remembered not only for his contribution to Bengali language and literature, but also for the unique place he occupied in the cultural history of Bengal. His life not only helps us understand the dynamics of what is often called the Bengal Renaissance, but also the socio-cultural and literary history of nineteenth-century Bengal.

Dutt's letters offer an excellent point of entry into the heart and mind of this great poet. Nowhere else did he express himself as freely as he did in his letters which provide invaluable insights into his life, character, and, above all, his art.

Although originally written in English, no standard edition of his letters is in existence. The present volume, edited by Ghulam Murshid, provides extensive annotations to individual letters, brief biographical sketches of their recipients, as well as glimpses of the poet's life.

This book should be of interest to scholars and the general reader alike.

About the Author:

Ghulam Murshid has published more than a dozen books on subjects ranging from Bengali language and literature to the socio-cultural history of Bengali. His book Reluctant Debutante: Response of Bengali Women to Modernization (1983) was a pioneering work in women's studies in India. He is the author of Lured by Hope: A Biography of Michael Madhusudan Dutt, translated by Gopa Majumdar (OUP, 2003)

Fantastic! Thank You for amazing service and fast replies!

I’ve started receiving many of the books I’ve ordered and every single one of them (thus far) has been fantastic - both the books themselves, and the execution of the shipping. Safe to say I’ll be ordering many more books from your website :)

I received the kaftan today via FedEx. Your care in sending the order, packaging and methods, are exquisite. You have dressed my body in comfort and fashion for my constrained quarantine in the several kaftans ordered in the last 6 months. And I gifted my sister with one of the orders. So pleased to have made a connection with you.
