Publisher's Summary

This masterwork by the Nobel Prize-winning author explores a traditional Indian marriage upended by the influences of modernism and revolution.

Nikhil is a passive landowner. His houseguest is Sandip, a headstrong anti-imperialist. Between them is Nikhil’s wife, Bimala, dutiful to her conventional husband yet drawn to the fiery independence and bold flirtations of the charismatic Sandip. As Bimala questions her role as a woman and the possibilities for her life outside marriage, the three undergo an emotional struggle that will change their lives forever—just as their country undergoes a radical upheaval of its own.

Written when the impact of the West was sparking fierce debate, The Home and the World charted the philosophical and emotional currents of the time with humanism, eloquence, and astonishing clarity.

Revised edition: Previously published as The Home and the World, this edition of The Home and the World (AmazonClassics Edition) includes editorial revisions.
