SRI AUROBINDO'S SAVITRI - A STUDY OF THE COSMIC EPIC - DR PREMA NANDAKUMAR
Now in its third edition, this study of Savitri has a wide scope. Part I sets the stage by looking briefly at Sri Aurobindo's life and work and the place Savitri occupies there. Part II examines the poem canto by canto in all its elements: the epic story, the poetry, the philosophy, the mystic experiences, the yogic realisations, and Savitri's final victory for the earth and man. Part III considers the significances of Savitri, as a legend and a symbol, as a continuing experiment in overhead poetry, as a cosmic epic in relation to human thought and experience across the ages. The detailed references, select bibliography, and index complete the work, which was the author's PhD thesis. The book was out of print for a number of years.
