Bengali polymath Rabindranath Tagore reshaped Bengali literature and music with Contextual Modernism in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Commonly referred to as "The Bard of Bengal", Tagore became the first non-European to win the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1913. A prolific writer, his novels, stories, songs, dance-dramas, and essays spoke to topics both political and personal. Most of the lyrics in The Gardener appeared previously in Tagore's best-known work Gitanjali.
