Set in 1930s Calcutta, this is the story of Allan, ambitious young French engineer, who arrives in India full of colonial pride and prejudice, and cocooned in European habits and preconceptions. Accepting his Indian employer's hospitality, he meets Maitreyi, the beautiful daughter of the house, who seems to embody all the strangeness and enchantment of his new world. Bewitched by her mystery and power, he falls in love violating every taboo - they begin an affair which cannot transcend the rules of Indian society, which must, inevitably, lead to a tragic conclusion. The novel is based on Eliade's own experiences. "Bengal Nights" is a classic novel about coming of age and about the indestructible differences of culture. Written in 1933 and originally published in Rumanian, it appeared in French in 1950 as "La Nuit Bengali". The film, "Les Nuits Bengali" was made in 1987.
