"[Rabindranath Tagore] is quite as good as Yeats on the way that the imagination can entrap the soul before ever managing to liberate it; and he would agree with Yeats that nationalist enthusiasm can be one kind of such poisonous fantasy. 'The idea of the Nation is one of the most powerful anaesthetics that man has invented,' Tagore told his American lecture audience." Seamus Perry • TLS
