She was 16 then. To imagine that she remembered every detail of their time together even though she was writing this memoir many years later clearly showed her undying love. I would have normally rated this book to a 4 star value instead of 5, but I think it deserves greater recognition and respect if only for setting the story straight. Thus it qualifies for a genuine, poignant romance that incurs true passion.

Reading this book first will I still have the same emotions that Mircea Eliade ‘s book Maitreyi have brought up in me, but in a much smaller amount because Maitreyi’s book brings a lot of understanding of her, the situation in general and moare-maitreji much appreciated understanding of Eliade and his dagostea, during and after It doesn’t stop me from still liking a great deal of his works, but it’s in spite of his personal character, and definitely not an endorsement of it.

The ending was weird. She asked a friend to translate the novel from French and was shocked to find how it depicted their relationship. Mircea wrote a very transparent novel called “Bengal Nights”. I am so touched by the depth of this book. Precocious, a poet, a philosopher’s daughter, Maitreyi Devi was sixteen years old in when Mircea Eliade came to Calcutta fevi study with her father.
You will be given the chance to experience their encounter from both perspectives, something that is rare, even in literature. In her account, Maitreyi Devi was intrepid and set an example as a confident author doing justice to not just literature but to herself by catharsis.
It Does Not Die is Devi’s response. I still have the same emotions that Mircea Eliade nnu book Maitreyi have brought up in me, but in a much smaller amount because Maitreyi’s book brings a lot of understanding of her, the situation in general and a much appreciated understanding of Eliade and his actions, during and after It’s fascinating to see the same events through different eyes, especially when they have allowed time and maturity to provide a more nuanced take.

Taken together, the New York Times describes the two novels as “an unusually touching story of young love unable to prevail against an opposition whose strength was tragically buttressed by the uncertainties of a cultural divide.
But here Maitreyi shows a young Mircea as someone I could believe she did fall in love with, however young and inexperienced they both were. Moare-maitdeyi still don’t think very highly of him, though.

Devi later wrote “We were two good exhibits in his museum”. What followed was scandal and a life-long separation.
Only a woman [wife: Well, at least after reading this book I don’t blame ‘Allan’ from ‘Maitreyi’ so much Her relationship with Mircea while he was living in her house and studying under her father forms the core of the book, both for what it meant at the time and for how it effected her life afterwards.
How does one read and comment on poetry, when, at least for me, it is first and foremost an hu experience.
Feb 18, Shromona Dasgupta rated it it was amazing. Somewhat difficult to read because of the absence of editing, but a thoughtful and at times poetic must-read response to Bengal Nights. She confronted him about the lies he wrote in his book and as a result Mircea promised the book would not be published in English in her lifetime.

The book was definitely not as well written as “Maitreyi” drgaostea, according to Maitreyi herself, it was much closer to the real story. Aug 07, Anda T.
