胡適與泰戈爾;A Nobel Tradition: Rabindranath Tagore





胡適《追憶太戈爾在中國》(《胡適文集 七》北京大學出版社,頁626-27。)中,談到《華嚴經》的《回向品》所記:…”盡人而悅之是不可能的。「回向」是大乘佛教的一個思想,即已成菩薩道的人,還得回向人間,為眾生努力。

新月集 73-140

泰戈爾作品和一些因緣


Did you know that Bob Dylan wasn't the first songwriter to win the Nobel? Calcutta-born poet Rabindranath Tagore was awarded the prize in 1913:
"Tagore was a true multi-disciplinarian. He was a performer, essayist, artist, poet, as well as a lover of music and a fine, prolific writer of songs. He wrote in both Bengali and English and translated his own work. The title of his most famous creation, a collection of 103 lyric poems published in 1912, is Gitanjali: 
 Song Offerings. Tagore had translated the work on his sick bed in Bengal, feeling too ill to work on new material. As the title suggests, much of the material contained therein are songs, albeit songs that Tagore converted into compositions that are meant to work as poetry without music. This collection — a small slice of his oeuvre, which includes 60 books of verse — almost certainly secured Tagore the prize. It throws into question the claim that Dylan is the first songwriter to win the Nobel in Literature. If this really was a collection of songs, then that’s it — Tagore had Dylan beat by over a century. And yet."
