Sacrifice, Sanyasi, Malini, King and Queen by Rabindranath Tagore 1963
Sacrifice, 1963, by Rabindranath Tagore is a hardcover collection, featuring 4 plays:
- Sanyasi the Ascetic
- The King and the Queen
Sacrifice shows the human conflicts during those ancient times of human sacrifice and is dedicated to those who stand for peace "when human sacrifice is claimed by the Goddess of War."
In this volume the four plays suggest the seemingly simplistic style of writing in which Tagore presented symbolic tales revealing the depth of his insight into human conditions and his understanding of humanity.
The vintage hardcover book, published in 1963, appears to be the only copy of this edition available for purchase online, making it a rare and highly collectible addition to any well-rounded personal library.
It has 256 pages and measures 5 inches by 7 1/4 inches. It is unmarked and in good condition. The colorful dust jacket shows some wear at the edges but is also in good condition.
