Originally published in Bengali in 1912, this account of the first 27 years of Rabindranath Tagore life was published in English in 1917. Starting with an account of his Spartan upbringing in a large joint family, Tagore describes the early years of education, his first real acquaintance with his ascetic father on a trip to the Himalaya, his apprenticeship in poetry, music and theatre under the tutelage of his remarkable cousin, his first visit to England, and the composition of his earliest works. The book ends with an important death which deeply affected Tagore's poetic personality.

Rabindranath Tagore was born May 7, 1861 in Calcutta, India into a wealthy Brahmin family. Tagore received his education at home. He was taught in Bengali, with English lessons in the afternoon. Tagore spent a brief time at St. Xavier's Jesuit school, but found the conventional system of education uncongenial. In 1879, he enrolled at University College, at London, but was called back by his father to return to India in 1880. During the first 51 years of his life, he achieved some success in the Calcutta area of India where he was born and raised with his many stories, songs and plays.
