Home and the World: Ghare Baire

Rabindranath Tagore (Author) Sreejata Guha (Translator)
Synopsis Set against the backdrop of the partition of Bengal by the British in 1905, Home and the World (Ghare Baire) is the story of a young liberal-minded Zamindar Nikhilesh, his educated and sensitive wife Bimala, and Nikhilesh's friend Sandip, a charismatic nationalist leader whom Bimala finds herself attracted to. A perceptive exposition of the difficulties surrounding women's emancipation in pre-modern India, and a telling portrayal of the chasms inherent in the nationalist movement, Home and the World has generated endless debate and discussion. This classic novel by Nobel Prize--winner Rabindranath Tagore, first published in Bengali in 1916, is now available in a lucid new translation.
