Talks in China (1925) has been put together from the lecturers delivered by Tagore in 1924 in China where he went at the invitation of the Beijing Lecture Association. The poet gave innumerable talks, most of them delivered informally without any written notes.

It is interesting to note that his China visit was the most tempestuous of all his foreign trips. He met with organized hostility from the members of the Communist Party and was labeled as a reactionary and ideologically dangerous. Talks in China was dedicated to Susima (indianisation of Xu Zhimo), noted Chinese poet, who acted as his interpreter in China.
