About The Book

Two Sisters (Dui Bon, 1933) was first published in 1943 (translated ky Krishna Kripalani) and is one of Tagore’s last three novels. It is about the eternal conflict that arises when a man does not find a mother figure and a sweetheart in the same person. He needs the former and desires the latter, Man draws strength from the mother in a woman and inspiration from the beloved in her. When the two do not meet in the same individual, his heart is torn asunder, The poignancy and the tender irony of its theme makes Two Sisters one of the finest Tagore novels.
