Who are you, reader, reading my poems an hundred years hence?
from “The Gardener 85” by Rabindranath Tagore
The New York Times travels to Rabindranath Tagore’s Shantiniketan, or “Abode of Peace,” a refuge and school founded by the poet—it became a college in 1921. Today, 6,000 students attend.
Tagore became the first non-Westerner to win the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1913 and published a series of poems in Poetry’s June 1913 issue.
