In this Song Offerings to the Creator, Tagore uses modernised images from classical Indian love poetry to symbolise his yearning to merge with God. So, the mud-stained traveller, the parched summer earth, the bride awaiting the return of her lord, the first monsoon shower, the flowers, the rivers and the conch are images which gain a mystical depth in these poems.
Included in this edition is W B Yeats introduction to the first edition of Tagores English rendering of this collection.
