Mulk Raj Anand's novels, The Village, Across the Black Waters and The Sword and the Sickle popularly known as the Latu Trilogy, are unique in the entire range of lndo- Anglian fiction. The trilogy has not attracted as much critical attention as it deserves. Though published about five decades ago, it remains as relevant to-day as it was then. This paper examines the trilogy as Anand's protest against the exploitation of the peasant whom he describes as the "most important man in India." Thematically conceived as an epic, the trilogy is a great artistic achievement. Anand's magnum opus is a peasant saga par excellence.
