Rabindranath Tagore was a Bengali polymath who won the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1913. He was a poet, visual artist, playwright, velist, educationist, social reformer, nationalist, business-manager and composer. Gitanjali (Song Offerings), Gora (Fair-Faced), and Ghare-Baire (The Home and the World) are among his best-kwn works. The King of the Dark Chamber was written in 1914. The play is an allegory of an individual's spiritual and personal awakening in their quest for beauty and truth. The relationship between Sudarshana, the Queen and the King is symbolic for the relationship between man and the Divine.
