RBWF Lecture: 'Robert Burns and Rabindranath Tagore’

RBWF Lecture 14th April Thursday, 7:30 : 'Robert Burns and Rabindranath Tagore’ Delivered by Prof. Bashabi Fraser CBE.

To Book on Eventbrite -

The RBWF Lecture series resumes with an excellent talk in April from Bashabi Fraser on 'Robert Burns and Rabindranath Tagore’. Rabindranath Tagore was the principle poet of the Indian people and winner of a Nobel Prize, but it is less known that he was a fan of the poetry of Robert Burns and attributed some of his poetic ideas to the influence of Robert Burns. Professor Bashabi Fraser has set as the full title the following 'The Golden Thread of Poetry: Robert Burns and Rabindranath Tagore, the National Bards of Scotland and India'. Dr Bashabi Fraser, CBE is an award winning poet, children’s writer, editor, translator and academic. She is Professor Emerita of English and Creative Writing and Director, Scottish Centre of Tagore Studies (ScoTs) at Edinburgh Napier University, a Royal Literary Fund Writer and an Honorary Fellow at the Centre for South Asian Studies at the University of Edinburgh. Bashabi is the Chief Editor of the academic and creative peer-reviewed international e-journal, Gitanjali and Beyond. Details of the lecture and enrolment will be available shortly on Eventbrite and on the RBWF website. Sign up for a wonderful experience.

Had the great good fortune to visit the Cunninghame Aisle at St Maurs in Kilmaurs with my friends Roger Griffith and Alan Beck. What a fascinating place, well worth a visit.
