The Home and the World, Paperback / softback Book

The Home and the World Paperback / softback

Edited by William Radice

Paperback / softback

Description

Set on a Bengali noble's estate in 1908, this is both a love story and a novel of political awakening.

The central character, Bimala, is torn between the duties owed to her husband, Nikhil, and the demands made on her by the radical leader, Sandip.

Her attempts to resolve the irreconciliable pressures of the home and world reflect the conflict in India itself, and the tragic outcome foreshadows the unrest that accompanied Partition in 1947.
