Anandamath was one such text written during the colonial era "which showed the frustrated readers a way out of their anguish and inferiority through the path of action and hope.
Devdas is marked by an unevenness that may be attributed to the fact that it was an apprentice work. In the UK, which had had its Oliver Cromwell moment some centuries ago and was in no mood to repeat it, the reaction was along the lines of, Jolly good yarn.

It is in fact a stark narrative, with an understated beginning and a ruthless end. What would be your cover story? Who shall have babies, who shall claim and raise those babies, who shall be blamed if anything goes wrong with those babies? Article continues after advertisement I recall that I was writing by hand, then transcribing with the aid of a typewriter, then scribbling on the typed pages, then giving these to a professional typist: Whatever external changes might have taken place in the 21st Century, evidently these male fantasies still endure.
His novels serialised in various Bangla magazines created such a huge demand for the work of this new writer that publishers got hold of his earlier writing from his friends and began to print them indiscriminately. There are page counts; I had a habit of writing down the pages completed as a way of urging myself on.
Similarly, I allowed my Handmaid a possible escape, via Maine and Canada; and I also permitted an epilogue, from the perspective of which both the Handmaid and the world she lived in have receded into history.
