Devdas and Other Stories by Sarat Chandra Chatterjee

V.S. Naravane (Translator)
Synopsis This volume contains translations of some of the best stories by Sarat Chandra Chatterji, one of the greatest figures in modern Indian literature. Apart from Devdas and Srikanta, famous novels presented here in an abridged form, the selection includes some deeply moving stories which have not thus far been accessible to the English reader. In his introductory essay, the translator, has given a brief outline of Sarat Chandra's life and discussed the distinctive features of his art and technique. DEVDAS, written in the early decades of the twentieth century, still captivates readers, and has been filmed several times - testament to its endurance and class. One of Sarat Chandra Chatterji's finest novels, it reveals the best there is in Indian romantic literature. The classic, heart-touching story of unrequited love, of a man's fall from grace and his tragic end offers an insightful and compassionate portrayal of men and women in love. This abridged translation of Divas and Srikanta and six of Sarat Chandra's short stories brings to English readers a careful selection of the writer's best.
