Hilda: A Story of Calcutta; Sarah Jeanette Duncan, first published in 1898. Drawing from her own experiences during her stay in British-ruled India, these novel can be a brilliant voyage for those who are in search of lost time. With vivid descriptions and a study of manners of the then Calcutta society, this is a detailed look into a city that served as the capital of India during the British Raj. And for lovers of the ‘city of joy’, this is an essential read. For a generation that didn’t take too kindly to an opinionated woman, her satirical writing and argument for bringing realism in literature drew huge attention. Having lived in India for 25 years under British rule, her writing demonstrated the effects of British imperialism on colonial culture and the clash of idealism and conformity. Written with astonishing attention to detail, The Imperialist and Cousin Cinderella, both among her greatest achievements, are considered landmarks of Canadian literature.
