Never Not an Educator: Tagore as a Poet-Teacher
AbstractTagore was an educator in everything he wrote and did. He was also always a poet, in his novels and plays as well as his poetry. The dÃ©nouement of his novel YogÄyog can be faulted on novelistic grounds, but is understandable if one relates it to his sometimes oppressive sense of his own destiny. His play MuktadhÄrÄ shows that he was well aware of the perils of charisma and gurugiri. His educational experiment at Santiniketan, which rested so heavily on his own charisma, may therefore have had some inherent dangers. Visva-Bharatiâ€™s chequered history may in time lead one to ask whether there were problems with the Poetâ€™s dream itself.
