Description

Back of The Book

This book contains all Sri Aurobindo's independent prose writings on the Mahabharata, as well as all his translation of passages from the epic, including the first six chapters of the bhagavad Gita. in his main essay, Sri Aurobindo examines Vyasa's poetic style brings out his "peculiar appeal to humanity."

"Vyasa is the most masculine of writers. He has that is to say the masculine qualities restraint, dignity, indifference to ornament, strength without ostentation, energy economised, a strong, pure and simple taste, a high & great spirit, more than any writer I know.

"The style of this powerful writer is perhaps the one example in literature of strength in its purity; a strength undefaced by violence & excess yet not weakened by flagging and negligence."

Publisher's Note

This book contains all Sri Aurobindo's independent prose writings on the Mahabharata, as well as all his translations of passages from the epic. These writings and translations were done at various times between 1893 and 1902, when Sri Aurobindo was living in Baroda. A few paragraphs on the Mahabharata, written in Pondicherry in 1920, have been included in an appendix.

The essays and translations in this book (with the exception of the Gita translation) were first published together in 1991 in a book titled On the Mahabharata. The present work is a revised version of that book, brought out under a new title.

Vana, Australia
I was pleased to chance upon your site last year though the name threw me at first! I have ordered several books on Indian theatre and performance, which I haven't found elsewhere (including Amazon) or were unbelievably exorbitantly priced first editions etc. I appreciate how well you pack the books in your distinctive protective packaging for international and domestic mailing (for I order books for India delivery as well) and the speed with which my order is delivered, well within the indicated time. Good work!
Chitra, United Kingdom
