Abstract
The paper analyses symbols and references related to freedom lost and finding by the human being, with the sample of Rabindranath Tagore’s literary work, Indian poet, philosopher and painter (1861-1941). Through those elements a symbolic framework is built, showing a certain conception of true freedom, always related to transcendence. That conquest is desired and feared at the same time, as a contradiction that presents itself as a reflection of human nature.
