Buddhadeb Bose | Brief Biography

Buddhadeb Bose was a Bengali author, poet, and literary critic who is considered one of the most prominent literary figures in modern Bengali literature. Born on August 21, 1908, in Faridpur, Bengal Presidency, British India (now in Bangladesh), he was the son of a lawyer.

Bose studied at Scottish Church College in Kolkata and later at the University of Calcutta, where he earned his master’s degree in Bengali literature. He began his literary career as a poet and soon became known for his unique style, which combined the traditional and the modern. His first collection of poems, “Khudhito Pashan” (Hungry Stones), was published in 1934 and was well-received by critics and readers alike.

In addition to his poetry, Bose was also known for his criticism, particularly his essays on modern Bengali literature. He was a founding member of the Kallol movement, a literary movement in Bengal that sought to modernize Bengali literature and break free from the traditional style of writing. Bose was also a prominent member of the Hungry Generation movement, which was a cultural and literary movement in Bengal that sought to challenge the social and cultural norms of the time.

Bose was a prolific writer and his works covered a wide range of topics, including politics, culture, and social issues. He wrote novels, short stories, plays, and essays, and his works were translated into several languages, including English, French, and Russian. Some of his most notable works include “Ganadevata” (People’s God, 1946), “Jibansmriti” (Memoirs, 1977), and “Shikha” (Flame, 1981).

Throughout his life, Bose was actively involved in various cultural and literary organizations, and he was a strong advocate for the promotion of Bengali literature. He was awarded several honors for his contributions to Bengali literature, including the Padma Vibhushan, India’s second-highest civilian award, in 1985.

Buddhadeb Bose passed away on December 7, 1974, in Kolkata, India. His legacy continues to influence Bengali literature and his works are widely read and revered by literary enthusiasts and students of Bengali literature. 0 0 0.
