In Karmabhumi Premchand explores the complex world of human relationships while firmly grounding his characters in the social and political realities of his times. Through his protagonists and their yearnings, love, laughter, tears, trials, and tribulations, the author subtly brings alive the India of the early decades of the twentieth century, while at the same time delivering a powerful social and political message. With its focus on the nationalist movement and strong political and social overtones, the novel will interest general readers, as well as students and scholars of literature, Indian literature in translation, and social history.
