Gitanjali: Song Offerings

(1914)

Carpenter's song cycle Gitanjali: Song Offerings features the poetry of Bengali writer Rabindranath Tagore (1861-1941), a contemporary of Carpenter. Tagore won the Nobel Prize in 1913 for the 103 poems of Gitanjali and translated the poems into English himself. Carpenter's song cycle, featuring six of these poems, was published a year later.
