About the book

This three-volume English translation by Ratan Kumar Chattopadhyay called Selections from Galpaguchchha is a collection of sixty-one of Tagore’s short stories broadly grouped under the themes of parting of ways, the relationship between men and women, and the power within the woman, respectively. In Volume 2 we find the ever- popular ‘Ramkanai’s Folly, The Ghats Story Woman Bereft of Jewels, Grandfather, and ‘The Matronly Boy among other stories. The travails of a timid man of indomitable honesty who attains a tragic heroism are narrated in Ramkanais Folly, while the theme of ‘The Ghat’s Story is the unstated, forbidden love of a young woman for a hermit who may or may not be her long-lost husband. The frisson in the haunting climax of the ‘Woman Bereft of Jewels’, a horrifying morality tale of egotism and greed, is justly famous.
