An important name in India’s history, Sarojini Naidu was the first Governor of the United Provinces after India declared its independence, and she was a key figure in Gandhi’s movement.

Although her legacy as a politician is certainly more enduring than as a poet, her verse was highly acclaimed upon publication, and when The Golden Threshold, her first collection, came out in 1905, contemporary poets queued up to offer recommendations.

Republished here in a smart new livery, this edition seeks to show the modern reader how Naidu earned her epithet, the ‘Nightingale of India’.
