TAGORE’S IDEA OF NATIONALISM IN GORA: A STUDY OF THE NOVEL AND THE CHARACTER

Ashik Ikbal.

Abstract
Rabindranath Tagore‟s pre-independence novel Gora highlights the role of history in the narrative of the Nation. The novel is set in the era of the Swadeshi Movement and echoes Tagore‟s political concerns. The novel revolves around the issues of nationalism, patriotism, identity and self – discovery. Throughout the novel, a search for identity in the colonized space through introspection and self questioning is propagated, rather than an aggressive nationalism. Tagore through his character Gora proclaims defining India as a cultural abode of unity and amalgamation. The sublimation of the character of Gora resonate the sublime thought process of Tagore, which go into making Gora to be his longest novel.

Key words: Nationalism, Swadeshi, Identity, Nation, Patriotism, Traditions, Culture, Amalgamation.
