A renaissance figure and marvel that Rabindranath Tagore has been, an analytical predilection of philosophy is hardly enough for comprehending his phenomenal creativity and expression of the highest values of will and feeling.

It is easier to deride the high and naked peaks of synoptic insight and opt for the worship...
