In Tagore, Rilke, Gibran Dr Rosy Singh deals with the recurrent metaphysical theme of love, harmony and peace in an age when social realism and western materialism had all but swept away any literary interest in mysticism. These three poets of East and West reflect on the destiny of Man in correspondence with the Divine Nature in all its sublimity and serenity.
After her doctorate on the Existential Situations in Franz Kafka from Jawaharlal Nehru University DR. ROSY SINGH teaches German at Delhi University. Her recent publication is Rilke, Kafka, Manto -the Semiotics of Love, Life and Death.
Tagore, Rilke, Gibran-a Comparative Study by Dr. Rosy Singh of Delhi University is an Associate of the UGC Inter-University Centre at the Indian Institute of Advanced Study. She deals with three very significant metaphysical poets of east and west at the turn of the century when Nietzsche's proclamation of the Death of God and Marxist social realism had all but swept away academic interest in mysticism. The lyrics of these poets kept the melody of love, harmony and peace tuned to the imagination of humanity. I am happy to present this incisive study as Occasional Paper of Inter-University Centre to the students of comparative literature and philosophy.
