Novels in Assamese

Assamese literature entered the era of novels/fictions in the late 19th century. The influence of British literature at that time can not be denied. The first novel in the count is Padmanath Gohain Baruah's "Bhanumati". It was published in 1890 in series in the Assamese journal "Bijuli". After couple of years he wrote another novel Lahori (1892). Another contemporary Assamese novelist was Rajanikanta Bordoli. His novel "Miri Jiyoree"(1895) has the same status as "Romeo Juliet" in Assamese literature.
