Chaturanga: A Novel

by Rabindranath Tagore Ashok Mitra

This book is called CHATURANGA (Quartet). It has four parts: Uncle, Sachis, Damini and Sribilas. The Bengali quatrain or payar, itself based on the primal rhythm of the Santal drum, and the classical four-part musical form were of inexhaustible interest to Tagore. Creator of the world's largest and most varied corpus of lieder and song cycles, he constructed many of his stories and novellas in four parts: exposition, development, variation and recapitulation. He was deeply attached to this form, its varying rhythms and speeds, and used it repeatedly not only in his early stories but in the most powerful novella of his early fifties (1914-15), Chaturanga.
