Description
About the Book

It is difficult not to be enthusiastic about Sri Aurobindo. His undeniable greatness inspires enthusiasm. But to combine acumen with enthusiasm, understanding of powers and pro-cesses with the feeling that here is a master - this is rare. It is such a combination - achieved with a sensitive vigour of writing - that makes K. D. Sethna's book on Sri Aurobindo's poetry a piece of valuable literary criticism.

The book aims at demonstrating the genius of Sri Aurobindo by treating his work under three heads: (1) blank verse of sustained excellence, (2) quantitative metre which brings into English a structural music equal to that of Greek and Latin poetry, (3) mystical and spiritual utterance from "planes" of inspiration more high and wide and intense than any usually found in the major poets - "planes" tapped with some freedom only by the Vedas and Upanishads.

How Sri Aurobindo, by substance as well as form, stands as a poetic creator of supreme originality and far-reaching influence is shown by apt quotation and illuminating comment woven into a fabric of many strands dipped in both Art and Philosophy.

About the Author

Thank you very much for the Shri Yantra with Navaratna which has arrived here safely. I noticed that you seem to have had some difficulty in posting it so thank you...Posting anything these days is difficult because the ordinary postal services are either closed or functioning weakly.   I wish the best to Exotic India which is an excellent company...
