Swami Vivekananda : The Known Philosopher The Unknown Poet

by Radhika Nagrath

Average Customer Rating ( Read Reviews | Write a Review )

Quantity:

The present book presents the study and information of Swami Vivekananda which evinces him a better poet than a thinker and a philosopher. It is by the dint of his supersensible order of life, and also the preaching that scholars have missed to explore his poetic excellence as well as its significance.

Amongst the tremendous works available on Swami Vivekananda, this book has a place of special significance as the issues and aspects evinced are those which the critics have never taken into account.

The author has unearthed the hidden aspects of the magnanimous personality of Vivekananda: the orator, the thinker, the conversationalist and the patriot saint through his poetic endeavour which does not over shadow his philosophic Being but paves way for the balance between the two. The approach of the author in analyzing the poetic traits of Vivekananda is the first ever one in the world.

The most amazing crux reached at by her is the influences of P.B. Shelley on Vivekananda as a poet, which he succeeds by transforming the Romantic Reality into a Classical vision. The uniqueness of the work is that it broadly highlights Vivekananda’s pursuit of the supersensible order or element as the theme of his poems other than the natural objects. Where most of the people feel surprise to hear about Vivekananda as a poet, the author has finally explored Vivekananda’s efforts of resolving the psychological ills of the world through the philosophical solutions in his poems such that the metaphical propensities seem to be more vital than the physical ones.

About the Author:

Ms. Radhika Nagrath is the scholar of a high repute. It was the result of the author’s long concentrated studies that she could find a theme on poetic endeavours of Swami Vivekananda, whom most of the people take as a philosopher and a thinker.

She is a regular contributor to the esteemed newspapers like the Hindustan Times, The Tribune and The Pioneer.
