Gora is the fifth in order of writing and the largest of Rabindranath's twelve novels.

Gora is more than a mere novel; it is an epic of India in transition at a crucial period of modern history when the social conscience and intellectual awareness of the new intelligentsia were in the throes of a great churning.

No other book gives so masterly an analysis of the complex Indian social life with its teeming contradictions or of the character of Indian nationalism which draws its roots from renascent Hinduism and stretches out its arms towards universal humanism. Despite the abundance of the polemics in the book - inevitable in the nature of the theme -Rabindranath Tagore does not lose the thread of the main narrative whose interest is sustained to the end.

Rabindranath Tagore

Rabindranath Tagore, sobriquet Gurudev, was a Bengali polymath who reshaped Bengali literature and music, as well as Indian art with Contextual Modernism in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Author of Gitanjali and its “profoundly sensitive, fresh and beautiful verse”, he became the first non-European to win the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1913.He is sometimes referred to as “The Bard of Bengal”.
