The Short Stories of Tagore included in this volume of translations cover a variety of characters, settings emotions and issues which highlight the complexity of human life. They contrast urban sophistication with rural innocence, provide a taste of the supernatural, and reflect upon the prevailing social orthodoxy and its impact on women.

Rural life in Bengal is portrayed vividly in these stores through the people and their concerns, the landscape the rivers, and the changing seasons.
