Universalist hopes in India and Europe: the worlds of Rabindranath Tagore and Srečko Kosovel

Ana Jelnikar, the author of the book published at Oxford University Press, presents and compares the worlds of Rabindranath Tagore (1861 – 1941) and our own Srečko Kosovel (1904 – 1926). With the texts of both poets she presents connections, common references and historical circumstances that unexpectedly joined one of the greatest thinkers of modern India with the mental and emotional world of young Kosovel, who was strongly inspired by his Indian contemporary. Beyond doubt, Kosovel knew Tagore well and has read him, while Ana Jelnikar discovers some of Kosovel’s features that have so far not been researched in Slovenian literary history. (KKH)
