English author and Royal Society member Sturj Moore nominated Rabindranath for the Nobel Prize.
In 191 Tagore Song Offerings (English: Song Offerings) was published in the anthology. The book of poems Gitanjali by Rabindranath Tagore himself and some contemporary translation was published. Rabindranath Tagore won the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1913 for English poems.
The translations were often radical, leaving out or altering large chunks of the poem and in one instance fusing two separate poems (song 95, which unifies songs 89,90 of Naivedya). The translations were undertaken prior to a visit to England in 1912, where the poems were extremely well received. In 1913
Rabindranath Tagore was a great humanist, painter, patriot, poet, playwright, novelist, storyteller, philosopher, and educationist. As a cultural ambassador of India, he gave voice to the country and became an instrument in spreading the knowledge of Indian culture around the world. India's first Nobel laureate, Tagore won the 1913 Nobel Prize for Literature.
The word gitanjali is composed from "git", song, and "anjali", offering, and thus means "An offering of songs". The songs of Gitanjali reveals in-depth philosophy, compassion and quest for truth. It goes beyond any structured religion and invokes rational thinking.
In translation his poetry was viewed as spiritual and mercurial; his seemingly mesmeric personality, flowing hair, and other-worldly dress earned him a prophet-like reputation in the West. His "elegant prose and magical poetry" remain largely unknown outside Bengal. Tagore introduced new prose and verse forms and the use of colloquial language into Bengali literature, thereby freeing it from traditional models based on classical Sanskrit. He was highly influential in introducing the best of Indian culture to the West and vice versa, and he is generally regarded as the outstanding creative artist of modern India.
