Red Oleanders is rather confused in its action and obscure in its dialogue, but there is no ambiguity either about the role of Nandhini or about the indictment delivered by the play or about the significance of the title. From the delightful warm exchanges between Nandhini and the Professor and later from the transporting soliloquy of Bishu in the opening sequence of the play, it is evident that the import behind the symbol of the blossoming Red Oleander in its association with freedom and death, the bracelet of which is finally to roll in dust as with freedom itself.

Tagore's treatment of caste culture, bureaucracy and poverty paint a vivid portrait of nineteenth century India and all are interwoven with Tagore's perceptive eye for detail, strong sense of humanity and deep affinity for the natural world. Tagore's stories continue to rise above geographic and cultural boundaries to capture the imaginations of readers around the world. This collection contains some of the best stories of Tagore who put India on the literary map of the world.

The plays Muktadhara (The Waterfall) and Raktakarabi (Red Oleanders) show his liberal thoughts. These two plays centers on the conflict between machine and human freedom and deal with the other side of love and sacrifice. 118+ million publications.

Written immediately after his visit to the US in 1923, Tagore's creative stimulation behind this play was his response to the increasingly materialistic society that he had experienced first-hand in the States. He thus created an imaginary land Yakshapuri, a city full of wealth and riches where human beings are reduced to machines as they toil though their lives to cater to the insatiable greed of their ruler, the King. It is against this backdrop that the protagonist Nandini appears who dares to point a finger at the dominating authority eventually bringing about a change in the King while leading the soulless citizens to the discovery of happiness in its truest form. However, this liberation comes at a cost.With the degradation of humanistic values and the specter of another World War looming large before them, the Western society found much relevance in Tagore's vision of the revolutionary world portrayed in this piece of translated literature. However, despite this topical allusion, the greatness of this book remains unchanged and continues to be a source of inspiration for the free-spirited, independent-minded readers even today.
Comments to eBook Red Oleanders
nadness
Reminds me of Waiting for Godot or Come and Go in that it's premise and execution are simplistic, but there's a whole ocean of depth. Heartstring-pulling and thought-provoking.

Classic work still good to read!
