Originally written in Bengali in 1912, The Post Office, a play rich in symbolism and allegory, is about man’s (represented by a boy) passionate cry for the faraway, for the call of the awakening in the world of spiritual freedom. 

 

Product Description

 

 

In appearance, said Anita Desai, the play is as modest as a dewdrop; in effect, it is as profound as the ocean. Mahatma Gandhi watched it in Calcutta in 1917 and was enraptured; W.B. Yeats thought it a masterpiece. In 1940, on the evening before Paris fell to the Nazis, Andre Gide’s French translation of the play was read to Parisians over the radio.

 

A rare combination of simplicity and sophistication, its unfailing appeal has made The Post Office a world classic.
