The Home and the World by Rabindranath Tagore
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.

    What we're about

    We mostly read the "classics", but we are always asking ourselves what qualifies as classic. We are a group of literature fans who are dedicated to looking at great books in new ways. We believe that classic literature can be interpreted throughout time in diverse and relevant ways.

    This is the place to read books you always meant to read, or re-read ones you never understood in high school! Some authors we have read so far include: Fitzgerald, Woolf, Conrad, Shelley, McCarthy, Achebe, Wells...
