Tagore's destiny was settled in 1913, when he won the Nobel Prize for Literature for a book of poems transposed from Bengali into English and edited by Yeats. In Britain and in France, which he visited several times, meeting famous writers and giving lectures, he built up a solid reputation. His work aroused an ambivalent reaction of fascination and repulsion, which, after coverage in the media unprecedented for an Asian writer, spread outside elite circles. The division between supporters of Tagore and his opponents arose within a wider ideological rift in which the points at issue were the mysterious, mystical and spiritual East, that was then puzzling many intellectuals; a synthesis of East and West for which Tagore was specifically calling; and colonisation, which was then threatened by Indian nationalists. The opposing reactions that Tagore provoked were less a matter of literature than of ideology and politics, at a peculiar time when mankind was about to become immersed in two world wars and subjected to dictatorships, and when India, led by Gandhi, was fighting for its freedom. From 1912 until 1930, Tagore, the writer, artist and educator, had become a public figure whose words were often distorted, whom people tried to manipulate for political reasons and who might therefore appear inconsistent. Between the symbol and the myth, rationalism and mysticism, the aura of Tagore has to a large extent remained as part of the world's collective memory: still very lively in Bengal, it has ceased to bewitch France, where little effort has been made to revive it
