MaitreyiEnchanted by his host's daughter the lovely and inscrutable Maitreyi a precocious young poet and former student of Tagore What follows is a charming tentative flirtation that soon against all the proprieties and precepts of Indian society blossoms into a love affair both impossible and ultimately tragic This erotic passion plays itself out in Alain's thoughts long after its bitter conclusion In hindsight he sets down the story uoting from the diaries of his disordered days and trying to make sense of the sad affair A vibrantly poetic love story Bengal Nights is also a cruel account of the wreckage left in the wake of a young man's self discovery At once horrifying and deeply moving Eliade's story repeats the patterns of European engagement with India even as it exposes and conde.

    REVIEW Î Maitreyi MaitreyiI hate him He gets what he wants then leaves doing all kinds of stupid stuff because suffering for love is just so poetic and everybody just loves a sad hero Or in the beginning when he just couldn't admit what he really thought and mocked everything Indian so that he wouldn't look bad And in the end he just HAD to be such a cynic about that girl's thoughtsI don't feel like rating this There were some things I liked but I can't remember them because I'm too furious I shall rate it in the future when I may be less subjective I just kind of hated everything about this story The language was extremely sickeningly sweet and over affected The story line was somehow good

    REVIEW Î Maitreyi Maitreyi Really Alain how could you fall for a Bengali They're disgusting I was born here I know these women better than you do They're dirty and there's nothing doing believe me no uestion of love That girl will never look at you I read this book two years ago and my feelings about it haven't changed for the better How to describe it best I think I've asked myself that multiple times over this time How do I put it into words how awful I felt about this book How it only proved the colonial mentality of Eliade's and not so much about the customs of our land that Eliade merely made a mockery of it all calling it all savageryThe racism in the story is blatant what's worse is that hate is thinly veiled as love The back story as you all know is of his time in India and his relationship with Surendranath Dasgupta and his family notably his daughter Maitreyi Devi Thinly veiled I mean as the protagonist is called Alain while the heroine is insulted repeatedly on her lack of

    REVIEW Î Maitreyi MaitreyiThis is just pure trash that I wish I didn't have to read for school and that it wasn't presented as the greatest love story Romania's ever damned seen Here's the plot Allan is a fetishist pig that mystifies India abuses his power as an older man and manipulates an inexperienced 16 year old to fall in love with him and wishes she would get raped so that she could be only his after she's cast out by her family gets jealous over everything A TREE HE GETS JEALOUS

    REVIEW Î Maitreyi MaitreyiI love it and I hate it at the same time if that is at all possible I just finished reading it for the second time and I don't really remember anything like this after reading it the first time but it hit something inside me wherever and whatever that is and a very weird combination of feelings surfaced I suppose Eliade succeeded in making the reader or at least me feel as close as possible to what he must have felt back then if not towards Maitreyi at least towards the book itself Being able to penetrate to its core this obviously touching and disturbing at the same time story I find myself judging him a lot for his stupid actions and his lack of judgment

    REVIEW Î Maitreyi MaitreyiI was planning on reading this book for a very long time and now that we were asked to read it for our Romanian class I thought that this was the perfect opportunity I actually think that this book is one of very few that I'm really glad that it is included in the scholarly program because to be honest the other books and authors are really lame Or maybe it is just my unconditional love for Eliade's literatureWhat I liked most about this book was that I could actually see the love growing in front of my eyes Maitreyi ha
