Rabindranath Tagore’s glorification of God and his straightforward approach to life in Gitanjali reveal his holistic aesthetic thought. His aesthetics of wholeness is strongly colored by Eastern culture and the philosophical concept of life, and differs markedly from the Western pursuit of totality in the same period. However, the emphasis on wholeness in literature and art at the aesthetic level in both East and West cannot escape from the universal problems of modern human society behind it.
