1936 ರಲ್ಲಿ ಮೊದಲ ಮುದ್ರಣ ಕಂಡ ಕುವೆಂಪು ಅವರ ಮೊದಲ ಕಾದಂಬರಿ. 2011 ರಲ್ಲಿ ಹದಿನೆಂಟನೆಯ ಮುದ್ರಣ ಕಂಡಿದೆ.

ಕುವೆಂಪು ಅವರು ಅರಿಕೆ ಮಾಡಿದಂತೆ ಕೃತಿ ರಚನೆಯಂತೆಯೆ ಕೃತಿಯ ರಸಾಸ್ವಾದನೆಯೂ ಒಂದು ಸೃಷ್ಟಿಕಾರ್ಯ . ಸೃಷ್ಟಿಕಾರ್ಯವಲ್ಲದ ಸರ್ವ ಕರ್ಮಗಳೂ ನೀರಸವಾಗುತ್ತವೆ.
ಅವರು ಹೇಳಿದಂತೆ ಕೋಲಾಹಲದಲ್ಲಿ ಓದದೇ ಸಾವಧಾನವಾಗಿ ಸಚಿತ್ರವಾಗಿ ಸಜೀವವಾಗಿ ಓದಿಯೇ ಸವಿಯಬೇಕಾದ ಸುಮಾರು 590 ಪುಟಗಳ ದೀರ್ಘ ಕಾದಂಬರಿ ಇದು.

From Kannada’s first Jnanpith award winner, a landmark of modern fiction that documents a vanishing world. When Hoovayya and Ramayya return from their studies in the city to their ancestral home, much has changed, throwing the even tenor of village life out of joint. The entry of Subbamma, the young wife of much-married Chandrayya Gowda into the House of Kanooru, sets in motion an irrevocable chain of events which signify the coming of age of a resolutely traditional society. Acutely conscious of the burden of their education amidst the torpor of manorial life, the brothers are forced to witness the descent into cruelty of Chandrayya Gowda, who breaks old familial ties, and demands an impossible fealty. The petty meanness of the Gowda s old age and the idealistic vitality of youth confront each other when Hoovayya and Ramayya both fall in love with Seethe, their childhood playmate, with disastrous consequences for the manor house of Kanooru. The epic conflicts of a decaying feudal order are seen through a multiplicity of characters, and voices that refuse to be silenced. The first stirrings of change in the lives of the Belas, the highland plantation workers and their labouring women, the proud Shudra landowners, the secretive and predatory Agrahara of the Brahmins, are dramatized by a humane eye sensitive to the slightest nuance. The House of Kanooru is ultimately a moving tribute by one of Kannada s greatest writers to the spirit of modernity. Translated from the Kannada by B.C. Ramachandra Sharma and Padma Ramachandra Sharma.
