Rajmohan s Wife, first serialized in 1864, marked Bankimchandra Chattopadhyay s debut as a writer. He went on to write fourteen novels in Bengali, including the epochal Anandamath and the verse Vande Mataram , which became the national song of India.
The beautiful and passionate Matangini, married to a villainous man and in love with her sister s husband, represents the vitality of women who remain strong in the face of brutality and the confining expectations of middle-class society. Bankimchandra s vivid descriptions of the routine of Bengali households provide a revealing portrait of life in the nineteenth century.
Rajmohan s Wife continues to be relevant for its universal themes of love and romance and resonates even today for its portrayal of strong women.
