About This Book
First published in 1905, "The Golden Threshold" is a beautiful collection of Indic poetry by activist and poet Sarojini Naidu (1879– 1949). Contents include: "Folk Songs", "Songs for Music", and "Poems". Naidu was a staunch proponent of women's emancipation, civil rights, and anti-imperialistic ideas, playing an important role in India's struggle for independence from colonial rule. Her work as a poet includes both children's poems and others written on more serious themes including patriotism, romance, and tragedy, earning her the sobriquet "Nightingale of India". Her most famous work is "In the Bazaars of Hyderabad" (1912), which remains widely read to this day. Other notable works by this author include: "The Bird of Time: Songs of Life, Death & the Spring" (1912) and "Muhammad Jinnah: An Ambassador of Unity" (1919). This classic work is being republished now in a new edition complete with an introductory chapter from 'Studies of Contemporary Poets' by Mary C. Sturgeon.
