History of Bengali Literature (An Old and Rare Book)
Description
About the Book

In the introductory chapters of the book linguistic and literary affinities of New Indo-Aryan speeches have been sketched and the origin and development of the Bengali language as well as of the Bengali script has been given in outline. The author's terminus ad quem is 1941, the year of Rabindranath Tagore's death.

About the Author

Dr. Sukumar Sen, the author of the book, has received several honours and recognition for his outstanding researches on the Bengali language and literature. The Fellowship of the Sahitya Akademi, the nation's highest literary Honour, was conferred on his in 1973.
