गोदान प्रेमचंद की सर्वोत्तम कृति है, जिसमें उन्होंने ग्राम और शहर की दो कथाओं का यथार्थ रूप और संतुलित सम्मिश्रण प्रस्तुत किया है।

गोदान होरी की कहानी है। उस होरी की जो जीवन भर मेहनत करता है, अनेक कष्ट सहता है, केवल इसलिए कि उसकी मर्यादा की रक्षा हो सके और इसलिए वह दूसरों को प्रसन्न रखने का प्रयास भी करता है किन्तु उसे इसका फल नहीं मिलता फिर भी अपनी मर्यादा नहीं बचा पाता। अंततः वह तप-तप के अपने जीवन को ही होम कर देता है। यह केवल होरी की ही नहीं, अपितु उस काल के हर भारतीय किसान की आत्मकथा है। इसके साथ ही जुड़ी है शहर की प्रासंगिक कहानी। दोनों कथाओं का संगठन इतनी कुशलता से हुआ है कि उसमें प्रवाह आद्योपांत बना रहता है। प्रेमचंद की कलम की यही विशेषता है।

It was first published in 1936 and is considered the greatest Hindi novel of modern Indian literature, although originally written in Urdu. Themed around the socio economic deprivation as well as the exploitation of the village poor, the novel was the last complete novel of Premchand. Its English translation first published in 1968, by Gordon C. Roadarmel is now also considered a classic by itself 
The protagonist, Hori, a poor peasant, desperately longs for a cow, a symbol of wealth and prestige in rural India. In a Faustian twist of fate, Hori gets his cow, but ends by paying for it with his life. After his death, the village priests demand a cow from his widow to bring his soul absolution, and peace (Godaan). The narrative can be said to represent the existence of the average Indian farmer under colonial rule, with the protagonist facing cultural and feudal exploitation.
