    One thought on “শেষের কবিতা”

    1. Tagore’s ‘The Last Poem’ is a real treat to read. He wrote this novel at the later stage of his life but the rhythm is as usual and which is always reflected from his writings. It’s a love story between Amit and Lavanya. The plot had been sketched in the beautiful hill station of Shillong. The protagonists met because of a small motor accident and soon they found an intense chemistry between them. They discovered philosophy through their poetry. ‘The last Poem’ is a very modern story [...]

    2. আমি মুগ্ধ! বিমোহিত! "শেষের কবিতা" সব দিক দিয়ে অসাধারণ সৃষ্টি বাংলা সাহিত্যের! লাবণ্যর প্রেমে পরে গেছি! নাকি নিজের ভিতর লাবণ্যর ছায়া দেখতে পেয়েছি?!সে যাই হোক! জয় হোক কবি গুরুর! :D

    3. When first time I read Shesher Kobita probably 15 to 16 years back, it seemed to me that it was nothing more but an average rated book. However, I didn't know why I felt interested to read it again. Then I started again to read and I read it 4 times at a stretch. The more I read the book, the more I felt that there was something more in the depth. Still, today whenever I get a chance I open the book at any page and read and get the same feeling again and again.

    4. Wanted to read the Hindi translation, but couldn't get it anywhere and had to settle for English. Enjoyed the transcreations from this blogwhich did an excellent job. Rich prose, having a filmy love story, albeit unconventional with a different level of emotions and understanding. Wish I could comprehend the poetry parts in Bengali, as translations strip them off their magical wordplay.Some noteworthy quotes.On culture and education: "The crude stone from whence the glittering diamond is cut is [...]

    5. গভীরতাহীন বেহুদা তরল পাকনামি- প্রত্যেকটা চরিত্র একই দোষে আক্রান্ত !

    6. An amazing and exceptional book is the one that you feel to re read once again from the 1st page after you have completed it. It is a very rare feeling which occurs to any reader after reading a book and Tagore's "The Last Poem" is one such gem. It is a saga, an epic love story. Tagore has brilliantly weaved poetry with prose and made every page of the book beautiful. The novel is deep, witty and extremely romantic. It is the type of book that will linger in the minds of the readers for long. Th [...]

    7. "কালের যাত্রার ধ্বনি শুনিতে কি পাও? তারি রথ নিত্যই উধাও জাগাইছে অন্তরীক্ষে হৃদয়স্পন্দনচক্রে পিষ্ট আঁধারের বক্ষ-ফাটা তারার ক্রন্দন।"কিছু বই আছে যা খপ করে গিলে ফেলতে হয় না, ধীরে সুস্থে আয়েশ কর [...]

    8. Okay, I finally read Shesher Kobita. It took me a long time to pick up the book for I was daunted by the difficulty of the language. And that's exactly why it took me over a month to complete reading this fantastic book. Now, what a book! It's more than just a love story. The dialogues between the lovers were culturally and ideologically rich alongside being romantic (which, by the way, may seem a little corny at this point in time). Some of the concepts discussed are way ahead of its time. The [...]

    9. 'Shesher Kobita' translated as the 'The last poem' is an unique amalgamation of poetry with prose. A quietly thought provoking love story, through which Tagore brings forth his philosophy on what defines love, its bindings and ultimately what it takes to find true liberation in that all encompassing emotion of the heart. The exchanges between Amit and Lavanya, through poetry, is magical, though I am sure to have missed out on what was lost in translation. At times like this, I feel truly sorry f [...]

    10. Sadly, even with an updated translation, the poetry --so essential to the novel's plot--remains stilted and awkward in English. The premise of the book, and it's relation to Tagore's own literary status in Bengal at the time, make this a treasure of world literature and definitely marks him as an experimentalist and high modernist of the first order.

    11. A beautiful lyrical narrative from Tagore ,the eminent writere characters Amit and Labanya remains eternally etched in our hearts A must read , a book to be read and re-read to be forever treasured!

    12. A poetic, thought-provoking and way-ahead-of-its-time story! The story set in Shillong painted a pretty picture, promising self-discovery, healing and the warmth of love. It's difficult to root for the central characters though, one of whom seems convinced that she cannot have a conventional happy ending, and the other doesn't seem convinced about anything. (view spoiler)[The central characters couldn't even see through their promising fantasy of forever till the end. (hide spoiler)] Some would [...]

    13. শেষের কবিতা পড়ার প্রতি আমার একটা অনীহা ছিল। স্কুলে পড়ার সময় স্যার একবার কারণ জানতে চাইলেন। ক্লাস নাইন পড়ুয়া আমি খুবই বিতৃষ্ণা নিয়ে বললাম, 'কনসেপ্টটাই তো কেমন! প্যাঁচের কারণটাই তো বুঝি নাহ!" স [...]

    14. Reading this book for the second time reminds me of revisiting "Srikanto" of Sharat Babu at different ages. Amit-Labonno, or dearly called Mita- Bonna, characterised our dwindling priorities and preference over one another. This phlegmatic book will indulge you to judge their decision and how their characters evolves over time to be settled with their choice, their believes to be suited. An epic depiction of Mr. Tagore's excavation of our secret side of minds that eventually transpires its delus [...]

    15. Book: The Last PoemAuthor: Rabindranath Tagore translated by Dilip BasuRating: 3/5 ⭐️⭐️⭐️Poetry is 'life's commentary in verse'.This book stands testimonial to these words. Life and love are best explained in poetry. Mathew Arnold has called poetry the "criticism of life". I feel poetry is appreciation of life, even sadness, ugly and tragedies in poetry become beautiful. Rabindranath Tagore is known for his various feats as an artist and philosopher - but it was poetry that reflected [...]

    16. A beginning, which was only a means to a completely different beginning. The author gave us such a beginning to a journey, which somehow turned out to be a part of a journey that had already begun in the far recesses of time. He gave us a love which was only a means to attain another love; yet the seed of this another love had had already been sown somewhere back in time. Somehow, only a love could make our protagonists see the presence of another love.It isn't very uncommon to see a person fall [...]

    17. প্রথমবার পড়তে গিয়ে দাঁতে দাঁত লেগে গিয়েছিল, দ্বিতীয় বার বেশ উপভোগ করে পড়লাম। আহ প্রেম, অসাধারণ।

    18. The book is about a platonic love of a matured couple. The protagonist Amit, a confident, self-occupied, unyielding being who loves to attack people around him by his witty talks, but doesn't consider them capable of getting him, finally finds his worth a million listener, a girl named Labanya. Labanya, on the other hand, had always devoted herself to the study and was never interested to rise her eyes from the books until she met Amit through a car accident which bound them together. The Shillo [...]

    19. I was fifteen. Love was around the corner. In fact, everywhere around me. Just then, I discovered that love exists within me and the object of love is nearly immaterial for the intensity of feelings. Nibaran is Amit but Amit can't be Nibaran. One is about understanding life and the other about experiencing it. Lavanya and Ketaki are but two forms of devotion. One that possesses and the other that reveres. And I remain to this day torn between love that inspires life and life that makes it seem w [...]

    20. This book was picked up because of its name – ‘shesher kobita’. I’m a huge of Rabindranath Tagore. This book portrays a great amalgamation of prose and poetry. The love that blossoms between Amit and Lavanya amidst the hills of Shillong and exchange of poetry between them is exceptional. With this, I’ve another book of Thakur Da added to my shelf.

    21. one of the best books i have ever readofcourse i have read it twice at a same time becoz i have read its every line twice my eyes went to the first eord of every line n automaticaly my eyes read the lines twice . Gurudev has written the large dimension of love in ink which a few people can get experiencedbut those few people never can write down it in words

    22. 'It has repeatedly occurred to me, when I've read about love in literature, that love becomes a tragedy when human beings, even while recognizing each other's need for independence, have refused to be content with this realisation. They have tried to remould, recreate each other in the way they desire, they have forcibly wanted to graft their own desires to someone else.'

    23. বাংলা সাহিত্যের অন্যতম কালজয়ী উপন্যাস এটি । অমিত ও লাবণ্য চরিত্র দুটি অত্যন্ত তাৎপর্যপূর্ণ । এদের বিচ্ছেদের মাধ্যমে হৃদয়ে এক ধরনের শূণ্যতার হাহাকারের সৃষ্টি হয় ।Readers would like to read this kind of book again and again.

    24. Probably the best romantic novel I have ever read the way Tagore defined the depth of love through the sweet love story of Amit & Labonno is Incredible there are so many lines that touched my heart really a nice Novel by R.Tagore

    25. Rabindranath was 63 years old when he wrote this beautiful novel,it brings a new philosophy of Love when the novel described the pletonic love between Amit & Labonya

    26. I probably would have enjoyed this work a lot more if I had a better grasp of the Bangla language. I think I might read it again sometime in the future.

    27. কালের যাত্রার ধ্বনি শুনিতে কি পাও?তারি রথ নিত্য উধাও।জাগিছে অন্তরীক্ষে হৃদয়স্পন্দনচক্রে পিষ্ট আধারের বক্ষ-ফাটা তারার ক্রন্দন। ওগো বন্ধু,সেই ধাবমান কালজড়ায়ে ধরিল মোরে ফেলি তার জালতুলে নি [...]
