Abstract:

Rabindranath Tagore's longest short story is “The Hungry Stones”. It is a blendof 'Three isms'-Lyricism, Realism and Supernaturalism. A solitary marble palace builtby Emperor Mahmud Shah II for his pleasure and luxury about 250 years ago is thebackground of the story. The atmosphere in the palace is full of “unrequited passions”and “lurid flames of wild blazing pleasure” which raged within that palace centuriesago.
