Letters on Poetry and Art


Comprised of letters written by Sri Aurobindo on poetry, literature, art and aesthetics, and their relation to the practice of Yoga.


This collection of letters, written by Sri Aurobindo in answer to questions from members of his ashram, covers poetry and other forms of literature, art, aesthetics, and the relation of all these to the practice of yoga. The letters are organised by subjects such as the sources of poetry, poetic technique, comments on his own and others’ poetry, practical guidance for aspiring writers, and the appreciation of all forms of art. The book incorporates material from volumes of the Sri Aurobindo Birth Centenary Library: Letters on Poetry, Literature and Art; Letters on Savitri; Collected Poems; and On Himself, and also contains around five hundred letters that have not appeared in any previous collection published under his name.
