Letters from a Sojourner in Europe


In 1878, Rabindranath accompanied by his brother, Satyendranath, sailed for England. Fortunately, we get glimpses of this trip from the letters he wrote home and which were published serially in the family periodical, Bharati. The letters give a lively account of the trip with interesting details; there are accounts of his impressions of people and events that take place. He continued to write these letters throughout his stay and they give a frank account of English life as he saw it in middle-class and upper middle-class homes. He also writes about the life of Bengalis in England. The letters, full of wit and the swagger of juvenile sophistication, are an interesting and authentic record of the impact English culture had on Bengalis at the height of the British Empire.
