A Play needs a plot, even as a house needs a firm structure. But how about a house that is no house, the shelter of a tree of a bush? How about the logic of dream sequences? A Play, doubtless needs a plot, characters, dialogues, sentiments; but if all even to become sentiments; but if all ever to become symbols.
Numerous writers make user of symbols in their writings. These symbols are used as a tool to understand the various problems of the appropriate manner to convey their ideas and philosophy towards life.
This book highlights different views of Tagore and his Philosophy towards life through different symbols such as spiritual cannot be achieved without understanding temporal, conflict between sensibility and self-indulgence and grandeur, triumph of the beauty, conflict between man and machine, etc.
It is no exaggeration to say that the use of symbolism is the very soul of Tagore’s plays. A detailed critical study of symbolism in Tagore’s Plays is a very fruitful piece for learners
