First published as a serial in the monthly journal Bangadarsan in 1882, Debi Chaudhurani had a profound impact in invoking India’s nationalistic spirit against British colonial rule. Set in late eighteenth-century Bengal, Debi Chaudhurani —the second in a trilogy of novels—revolves around Debi and her transformation from a dutiful young Brahmin housewife rejected by her in-laws to a hardy bandit queen and social benefactress. Later Debi returns to her husband’s home in the role of a virtuous wife and mother symbolizing the emergent motherland, glorified famously in Anandamath. Here Bankimchandra dwells on a woman’s conduct in private and public spheres as she copes with existing realities to find a room of her own. Further, the novel focuses on caste, and what it means to be an ideal Brahmin housewife. Translated with an Introduction and Critical Apparatus by Julius J. Lipner, this volume places the novel in the socio-political context of late eighteenth and early nineteenth century colonial India. Detailed explanatory notes and maps add value to this edition. The ideas expressed in the novel—considered revolutionary at the time—are still relevant in present times. Printed Pages: 289.
