प्रेमचन्द हिन्दी के सर्वाधिक लोकप्रिय उपन्यासकार हैं और उनकी अनेक रचनाओं की गणना कालजयी साहित्य के अन्तर्गत की जाती है। ‘गोदान’ तो उनका सर्वश्रेष्ठ उपन्यास है ही, ‘गबन’, ‘निर्मला’, ‘रंगभूमि’, ‘सेवा सदन’ तथा अनेकों कहानियाँ हिन्दी साहित्य का अमर अंग बन गई हैं। इनके अनुवाद भी भारत की सभी प्रमुख तथा अनेक विदेशी भाषाओं में हुए हैं। इन रचनाओं में…
