"Premchand is the most famous name in modern Hindi fiction, and 'Godaan' is Premchand's most celebrated novel. Economic and social conflict in a North Indian village are graphically portrayed in the story of Hori, a typical Indian farmer, and his family's struggle for survival and self-respect. Grinding poverty is the Indian farmer's greatest enemy, and Hori fights it to the bitter end of his life. As does every Hindu, Hori cherishes the desire to make the gift of a cow to a Brahman at the time of his death, for it is common belief that this gift enables him to enter heaven." -- Cover text.
