T1 The home and the world A1 Tagore, Rabindranath,, Tagore, Surendranath,, PB Penguin Books PP London; New York YR 2005 SN 0140449868 9780140449860 AB "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."--Publisher description.
