In the nineteenth century, Bengal witnessed an extraordinary intellectual flowering. Bengali prose emerged, and with it the novel and modern blank verse; old arguments about religion,society, and the lives of women were overturned; great schools and colleges were created; new ideas surfaced in science. And all these changes were led by a handful of remarkable men and women. Forthe first time comes a gripping narrative about the Bengal renaissance recounted through the lives of all its players from rammohun roy to Rabindranath Tagore. Immaculately researched, told with color, drama, and passion, awakening is a stunning achievement.
