Publisher:Sri Aurobindo Ashram
Cover:Paper Back with Dust Jacket
Remarks:B&W Illustrations, No dust jacket and the book is just fine.
Size:140 x 220 mm
This book examines and evaluates Sri Aurobindo's considerable poetic output in blank verse, his achievements in quantitative metre, a medium that had eluded English poets, and his creation of a new type of poetry that reached beyond the ranges of inspiration familiar to most poets to reveal new heights and intensities of mystical and spiritual expression. Before it was first published in 1947 it had the distinction of having been read out to Sri Aurobindo, who professed his admiration for the substance and style of this literary criticism by Sethna. The book is available again after a long time.
