The English of Savitri: Part 1
- Compiled by Shraddhavan
Based on the transcripts of classes given by her at Savitri Bhavan, the author's aim as reflected in this book has been to try to read the poetry as correctly as possible, according to the natural rhythms of English speech, to gain a basic understanding of what the words mean and the structure of each sentence, and thereby to enter more deeply into the atmosphere of the poem. Drawing on what Sri Aurobindo and the Mother have written and said about Savitri and on what she has learned from the work of such commentators as Amal Kiran, A. B. Purani, Dr Prema Nandakumar, and M. P. Pandit, the author shares her understanding of the poem. This volume covers the five cantos of Book One.
